recap: unique sf

happy thursday type.liters! hope your 4th was full and fun.

this past weekend we set up at uniquesf at the concourse exhibition center and had a great time. after much preparation, we were super excited to debut a a new fragrance and new booth setup, as well as hang out with some of our favorite fellow vendors from around the bay and southern california.

we featured genevieve of le petit elefant on our blog in april and our obsession with her adorable prints continues. and boy were we excited when she stopped by our booth!

our friends from genuine haha and intwined were in attendance, both of which starred in our spot.lites (here and here, respectively).

of course we couldn’t go through the weekend without doing a little shopping for ourselves. check out the name plates we had custom made by the urban smith.

special thanks to sonja and the unqiuesf crew, as well as to our numerous interns who helped us get our booth together. we couldn’t have done it without you!

finally, we are announcing the winners of our raffle: zach and lisa! congrats to our lucky winners, who will both receive $50 to use at our online shop.

 

spot.lite: intwined

today’s spotlite features the adorable intwined, bow ties with clashing personalities. the lovely jenn has created a collection of unique bow ties, ties and accessories that truly delight. pick up some of her goods here and see what she had to say below.

how/when did you start your company/business?
It all started when I decided to make a bow tie as a Valentine’s day gift for my boyfriend at the time. My friends really liked it so I started making bow ties for them. Then when I was laid off from my 9 to 5, I decided to start up a company since I was having so much fun doing it!

where do you come up with your ideas/concepts? where do you gather inspiration (for anything)?
I love to people watch and observe what they’re wearing. Also, me in a fabric store is like a kid in a candy store.  I LOVE fabrics — colors, prints, textures. A lot of my inspiration is drawn from being in the store, pulling whatever fabrics that catches my eye.

advice for others? best advice you’ve ever received?
Be competitive but in a healthy way. Work together to help each other grow, you’ll get a lot further in life.

what are some things you can’t live without?
Laughter, Friends, Family, and my google calendar >.<

what’s your current obsession?
Japanese food, but that’s past present and future obsession. Oh, also Instagram for Intwined. Everytime someone new adds me or likes my photo, I get really giddy inside.

something most people would be surprised to know about you?
Up until recently, I used to be really scared of needles. I even ran away bawling my eyes out when I was about to get my ears pierced when I was an early teen. Ironically though, I got my first tattoo before I got my ears pierced..

currently on rotation on your ipod?
Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, The xx, Beastie Boys, Corinne Bailey Rae, Jazzy Jeff’s Summertime mix.

favorite ninja turtle?
Raphael, he’s so rad.

favorite type.lites product/scent?
