I was invited by West Elm to join Peacock & Co to pop up for a day. West Elm LA and OC have been known to support local small businesses. And although it was an immense amount of preparation and long nights, I'm still so happy I did it.
On the day of, we ran into a few hiccups, but Casey and I managed to push through and make it happen. We were lucky to have help from our Peacock & Co. friends to help carry all the furniture up and down the freight elevator and wiggle through the back room. If it weren't for them helping, we would have never been set up in time and never would've gotten out of there at a decent hour.
We chatted up lovely customers stopping to hear what we were all about, who we were and what we do. Even a wonderful handful of my dearest friends made it a point to visit and show support. My mom showed up with a turkey sandwich trying to feed me (as any typical Filipino mother would).
I am grateful for Stephanie of Peacock & Co. for allowing me to be there with her team and use their muscles to help me load and unload furniture. I am grateful for my right hand Casey, whom I am constantly reminding that none of this is possible without her since day one. And most of all, I am grateful for West Elm for following my shop and extending the invitation to share my personal found treasures with theirs.
Let the adventure continue...
