Hey everyone! Remember that huuuuuuge secret I promised I would be revealing soon? I'm super excited to get to finally share it with you today! It's called the "Boss Babe Popup Shop".

So what is this magical mystery shop? As many of you may know, last year I won the Block 37 "Next Great Popup" contest; which provided me with a free retail store in downtown Chicago during the holidays. Amazing, right? This year I was excited to be a judge for the popup as Block 37 ushered in a new winner, Peter & Field. I know I know, I'm getting to the Boss Babe Popup! After talking with Block 37 about a new popup concept I had, we decided to make it happen this year during the holidays once again!

The Boss Babe Popup Shop is a new shopping concept that will feature 8 amazing, female-ran Chicago small businesses all under one roof! I will be working with each of these shops to organize and curate a shop perfect for all of you #girlbosses out there! But don't worry, it's ran by boss babes, but the products aren't only for bosses! (Although we firmly believe that every woman is both a BOSS and a BABE!) The shop will look just like a true boutique, with all of our product mixed in. Both The Trendy Sparrow and XO Marshmallow will be selling some amazing items in the shop!

Here is a look at who will be in the shop...

The popup shop will include a variety of amazing holiday items from some of the best small businesses that Chicago has to offer. Each of the 8 vendors brings something unique to the table. Alice and Wonder will be showcasing adorable boutique style clothing and home goods. Earth Cadets will feature locally screen printed pillows and children’s clothing. XO Marshmallow serves up deliciously handcrafted gourmet marshmallows and hot chocolate. Standout Style provides an excellent selection of plus size clothing for the fabulously curvy. The Trendy Sparrow showcases sassy graphic tees, coffee mugs, and more. While See Song Designs creates jewelry for the preppy fashionista, Vo Yourself uses more raw materials to create jewelry for the boho babe. And Paris 312 will be featuring their own line of fabulous party décor to keep you holiday parties looking extra chic! No matter who is on your Christmas list this year, you’re sure to find something special!
