It’s hard to believe it’s finally here!! We’re all headed to NYC this weekend for our long-awaited NY ShopUp! We are so excited to spend a weekend together and to meet and mingle with many of you on Sunday and Monday. We wanted to share a rough schedule of events and activities, so you can make sure to stop by at the best times to suit you and your family.

In addition to an amazing selection of the very best shops all setting up booth in the prettiest Brooklyn venue (see photos above), we’ve also organised some delicious food trucks and super fun activities for the little ones. Here’s what’s in store:

  • Kitchensurfing will be there with cooking demos and samples for the kids on Sunday at 1 pm & 3 pm and Monday at 11 am.
  • We’ll have an activity centre set up by UrbanSitter so you can drop off your children for crafts, face painting and stories while you browse the shops!
  • Lucie Hélène will be there offering magical, glittery face paintings and games!
  • We’ll have live music on Sunday at 2pm from the very talented John-Michael Parker of Great Caesar.
  • We have arranged for the tastiest food trucks to pull up and park inside (yes, inside! so cool!): Sigmund’s PretzelsDriftaway Coffee, Blue Marble Ice Cream (Sunday only), Neapolitan Express Pizza and La Newyorkina popsicles (Monday only). Come hungry!
  • We’ll have fun temporary tattoos from Tattly in the activity center
  • Children’s photography by Rebecca Zeller is available over the two days (no need to make an appointment, though if you want to you can reach out to her here).
  • We’ve lined up an amazing raffle in support of mothers2mothers charity who will be at the event with more info about their great cause and the prize you can win when you buy a raffle ticket. (If you’re unable to attend the event, you can still buy a raffle ticket here for your chance to win!)
  • We’ll have free samples of tasty (and healthy!) children’s snacks from Bitsy’s Brainfood
  • We’ll be selling a limited number of ShopUp totes for $5. First come, first served. So hurry, hurry!

Please note: you don’t even have to worry about parking!  Lyft is offering a discount code for new users: All you have to do is download the app, request a ride, and a driver will come pick you up in minutes. Use code SHOPUP for $20 off!

It’s really shaping up to be SUCH a fun day out, and we look forward to seeing you there!!
