One of Little L’s favorite questions to ask is “How do they make that?” She asks it all the time, about all sorts of things. She wants to know what’s in food, in toys, in cars. She’s constantly trying to figure out the “why” behind everything.
To be fair, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, with only one difference. Instead of needing to understand how things work, I long to understand the motivations behind brands and companies. I live to know their conception stories. Once I know how and why a company started I feel a sense of loyalty to them, I can’t help it, it’s like I know them.
A few weeks ago the CEO and founder of a new flash sale site contacted me to see if I could help promote some sales.
“Whatever, another flash sale site,” you’re thinking. But no! This one is different than the Groupons of the world. This website is offering shoppers the chance to chat with the designers and creators behind the items being sold.
Be still my heart.
How could I say no?
I’m helping with a first event taking place tomorrow (today?) Thursday, April 25th at 11:30am PST, a chat with Priya Saraswati of Saffron Rare Threads, and I would love to have you join us. The clothing being sold is gorgeous and fashionable and offers “structured silhouettes with feminine lines and timeless appeal.”
If the conversation from the last sale is anything to go by tomorrow’s chat is going to be incredible.
Join me? Come check out this brilliant new site? Maybe snag a couple gorgeous new items to round out your wardrobe? You know you want to!
