Brand Market Workshop

Nov 3, 2014

As you saw a few weeks ago on Instagram, I had the pleasure of speaking at The Brand Market Workshop in Chicago last month, and I couldn’t help but share some of the photos! I had so much fun getting to meet Anna, Mandy, Matthew and Ari in person, and learned so much from everyone’s unique stories and backgrounds.

Some of the most inspiring stories, though, were of the women who attended the workshop. It was so amazing to hear about the vision of these talented and driven ladies — some of them just starting out, some already making huge strides in their own businesses, and plenty in between.

The workshop was held in the gorgeous Palm Court at Loyola, with beautiful florals provided by A Splendid Occasion. (How adorable is the leaf backdrop and mini succulent place settings? Tiffany is so talented!) Shadow Box Dreams brought in the cutest vintage furniture and Rent Vintage Chicago provided the dreamiest china for coffee and lunch (needless to say, I left feeling a significant void in my own home decor collection). And those awesome geometric pillows? They’re from Tinyprints!




Don’t miss the final Brand Market Workshop for the year, next weekend — November 8th — in Atlanta! There are still some spots available, so be sure to sign up here! If you have any questions or still trying to decide, feel free to email me! I can’t say enough amazing things about this workshop. Congratulations, Anna, on all of your hard work!
