I know we say it every single time we get back from a ShopUp event, but the ShopUp in downtown Los Angeles this weekend was just so so great. We are still buzzing about now!
We absolutely loved The Springs venue and its location in downtown LA. We had never been to the downtown area before so it was amazing to discover a new area. And it is always such a great experience to meet so many people that we had only known virtually, be it fellow bloggers, shops and even customers. It was a super fun couple of days with a great crowd of lovely people walking around, chatting, shopping and grabbing a bite to eat.
Our blogger breakfast was amazing! The Springs restaurant served delicious food and juices which disappeared in minutes and everyone got to walk around and discover all the amazing shops. We’re so thankful for everyone’s support.
The breakfast was kindly sponsored by Sakura Bloom, makers of beautiful slings which are crafted of fine, all-natural fibres. The team was onsite to teach parents how to wear their slings and keep their little ones cosy and happy in them.
Seedling was on hand with all their wonderful art supplies and clever craft ideas to keep the children entertained at the event. They just launched their new Littles Collection for Toddlers, which was a big hit!
Baby Tula had their recently released Free-to-Grow Baby Carriers on display so it was the perfect opportunity for shoppers to try them on while they parked their strollers in the stroller park.
Special thanks also goes to your sponsors Happy Family Organics who handed out yummy samples for hungry kiddos. Do also check out our partners Heal who offer LA families on-demand doctor house calls. And last but not least, our lovely sponsor Lo&Sons beautiful bags are 20% off with code SHOPUPLA until May 5th.
And of course we should not forget all the amazing boutiques that joined us for the event. Honestly, we are so happy to be part of this energetic and creative community. I know we have uploaded way too many photos but they are all so good. Have a look through them (below) to get a good feel of all the fun that was had.
A big thanks to Sarina Cass from Red Anchor Photo for taking all these gorgeous photos!
