Over the past couple of years, SFEtsy has had the honor and privilege to do some amazing things with our friends at Rickshaw Bagworks. Founder and CEO, Mark Dwight is probably one of the most supportive business owners we have met in our journey as a team! Nearly two years ago the team hosted our first Rickshaw Bags and SFEtsy Design Contest (read about it here!) and in May of this year we held our second design contest (read about that here!) They even wrote a great blog post about it on their blog!
PS - All the bags made from this year's design contest are on display at Rickshaw until August 15th, so come by this weekend, eat brunch and check out the bags (and make your own!)
We had so much fun together that Rickshaw invited us out to do some weekend pop-up markets at their headquarters in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. The first one was held in June and our second one was held just a couple of weeks ago in July. So far, Rickshaw has hosted 18 of our team members!
It was so much fun, we have decided to make it a regular monthly thing :) I've posted some of the fabulous photos taken by our team historian and business group guru, Imelda from Sunset Shutterbug. We popped-up, we shopped, we designed amazing bags, we drank cocktails (thanks to Quinn from Libation Lab), we ate snacks (thanks to Stephanie from SinceSass) and we sold amazing handmade, local items to our community. I hope to see each of you come out and supporting the team and selling your work in this cute neighborhood!
Keep your eyes on our team forum for information on how you can participate in the next pop-up happening in August!
