Crown Nine + popuphood

we have fantastic news to share with you on this sunny (yet somewhat chilly) friday afternoon!

you can now buy our candles at Crown Nine in old oakland! we could not have been more thrilled when Kate Ellen contacted us about carrying type.lites in her brand spankin new flagship jewelry store. without hesitation, we hopped on board and joined the amazing cast of other artisans and local jewelry designers.

in equally, if not more, exciting news – Crown Nine is one of six stores curated for a project called popuphood. “popup what?!,” you ask. here’s the scoop…

“local entrepreneurs Alfonso Dominguez and Sarah Filley founded popuphood in 2011 as a new urban initiative offering six new retail shops in five previously vacant store fronts with six months free rent. through popuphood, a dynamic neighborhood is created where folks can stroll, dine, drink and shop, while exploring the neighborhood, discovering its historic charm and investing locally.  each local small business was curated by popuphood to compliment the already thriving restaurants and bars and benefit them by increasing the neighborhood profile to position old oakland as a true retail destination.”

retailers include: Manifesto Bicycles, Marion and Rose’s Workshop, Sticks + Stones, Piper and John General Goods, Turtle and Hare, and of course, our beloved, Crown Nine

huge thanks to Kate Ellen for the opportunity to play a tiny role in this amazing project called popuphood. we are incredibly excited.

the grand opening holiday event for popuphood is TODAY from 12pm-9pm centered on 9th and broadway street. get out there and support your local businesses. see you in the new old oakland.
