VICTORIA AND MARIE X RAW ARTISTS

AYE, IT'S A POP-UP PARTY

What a way to bring in 2017. Last night, Abbie and I had our first pop-up shop for Victoria and Marie at 1015 Folsom, a venue we are very familiar with. We've attended so many shows there over the years! At some point in the night, Abbie looked at me and said, "I never thought I'd be making chokers in this venue." It felt pretty unreal, but we had such a good time being in our creative element.

Truly, we did not anticipate to sell as many chokers as we did, nor did we expect to get that much interest in our pieces! Abbie and I are so hard on ourselves sometimes, but last night reminded us why we love what we do, and why we keep going. It's those moments of "oohs" and "awws" when we are drunk on our own creative ideas, and bring them to life. To make things even better, so many of our loved ones came to celebrate with us.

If the rest of the year looks anything like last night did, then 2017, I'm so ready for you.

 We get it from our mamas, and our mamas get their chokers from us! ;)
