Timed for holiday shopping season, Brit + Co SF is a new type of retail experience designed by all of us here at Brit + Co as a destination where you can both make and shop, all under one roof. The holiday installment of Brit + Co SF closed on December 20th, but we’ll be reopening for more winter wonders in January — stay tuned.
: First up, we had to let it snow!sent over a whole bunch of their awesome wooden snowflakes, and we set up a station for people to paint their own. Can’t wait to see some photos of these very snowflakes popping up on Instagram over the holidays.
: For a little style action, we partnered withto create a “trick out your beanie” Make Station. There were tons of beanies, and we stocked up on studs, beads, rhinestones, felt letters, and other goodies for customizing your own. This station was inspired by our very own post on 5 ways to update your beanies (in 5 minutes or less).
: Next, we teamed up withto make a totally tricked out DIY gift wrap station, perfect for wrapping gifts that you buy in the shop part of Brit + Co SF. Armed with all sorts of colorful gift wrap, yarn, ribbon, and, of course, washi tape, folks turned around some beautifully wrapped gifts.
: That’s right.has really stepped it up in the label maker department. You can actually PRINT your own custom ribbon. How cool is that?!
