A couple weekends before Christmas I held my first pop up at Handcraft & Hart. I met Russ through a fellow cake club member, Elsie, and we held one of our meetings there. Russ was so welcoming and such a great host, so when the holiday season came around I emailed him on a whim to see if he was interested in hosting a pop up. Thankfully he was, and quickly set up a time and date for myself and The Motley to set up a shop! The week leading up to the event I went through a range of emotions. What if no one comes? What if I run out of cake? Should I make more cake or donuts? In the end everything worked out perfectly. By 3:30 I was sold out!
It was such a great experience to meet a lot of instagram/online friends in person. I am so grateful that so many of you stopped by! Thank you again, Russ, for the opportunity.
If any coffee shops, gift shops, cafes, and everything in between would like to host a Matchbox Kitchen pop up or event, I welcome any ideas and opportunities! Please contact me through my website.
