Britt’s Picks: New Hires + Show Decor Sneak Peek
I’m so sorry I didn’t post last week (I’m blaming it on Wine Walk taking the wind out of me). But I’m back and so excited to tell you about all the things!
A lot has happened over the past 14 days! Here’s the scoop:
DEEP ELLUM WINE WALK
Thanks for sharing, @wherewithalicia!
Last Thursday was Deep Ellum’s monthly Wine Walk. The third Thursday of each month from 6-9 p.m. hundreds of people walk through our doors to sip and shop. We pour a glass of wine (or sangria this month) and they browse the boutique.
Truth: Some tipsy crazies definitely come through (and sometimes spill and make us roll our eyes). But generally, the shoppers are so sweet and excited to learn about us. We love these fast-paced nights that let people discover Flea Style and our awesome vendors!
This month was a record night for us. Cheers to that!
Last week we shot several looks for shopfleastyle.com. We had the entire team in on the fun and played dress up together.
It was so nice to let down our hair, crank up the music and shoot some cool things from the floor to let our out-of-town shoppers scoop up from the site. I love shooting on our crew because it shows how our clothes can be worn on a mix of body types and types of taste.
See some of the collection here!
HILLARY’S NEW ROLE
We’re so pumped Hillary from our sales team is folding into our corporate crew! When we learned DeAnna was leaving, we were so sad but also quick to find a replacement to get trained and up to speed on the 1,001 things DeAnna does.
Hillary was a natural fit given her retail chops and mad operations skills. We are so blessed to have her by our side and we’re stoked to have her in the office with us everyday!
With Hillary moving over from sales, we needed to hire some fresh faces for the floor. We started interviews this week and are very excited about our candidates. We will lock down our next hires by next week (and add their cute faces to our about page asap)!
DALLAS FALL SHOW PREP
Although our November Dallas show is months away, we’re already working on decor. Filling that 80,000 square foot space is no easy feat!
We’re so in love with our mood board for the event! Expect an earthy mix of colors and tons of texture from shaggy corn husk moments to fabric fringe hangings. It’s going to be so gorgeous and entirely handmade by our incredible team. If the 200+ vendors at the pop up weren’t enough reason to show up November 2nd and 3rd, the dreamy decor is the icing on the cake!
P.S. Do you have your tickets yet? You can purchase here now to skip the line! It’s going to be a packed house!
GETTING READY FOR MARKET AT THE STAR
Although there are a ton of balls in the air right now, we’ve been most focused on Market at The Star, our September 8th show in Frisco featuring 34 vendors and tons of fun activities and food specials.
DeAnna has been working hard on the photo wall and we’ve been doing lots of creative marketing details from a video to cute fliers to pass out at our store. This show is going to be crazy fun. From a live DJ and airbrush tattoo artist to our insanely talented vendors, this show is shaping up to be so fun. Don’t miss it!
Hope y’all have a wonderful Sunday! I’ll be at the store today, come say hi from noon to 5 p.m.!
