UO Happenings: Valentine's Pop-Up Recap


Love is in the air! Last Sunday, we hosted our annual Valentine's Pop-Up at Space 24 Twenty. With rain and chilly temps, we moved the fun indoors to our Women's Store on-site, keeping brave shoppers and event attendees happy and warm with delicious vegan cookies from Drowsy Yam, crafts & calligraphy with Jessica Mendez, braiding by Verb and a groovy vinyl set list from Moonlight Gram. 

We were thoroughly impressed by the level of creativity that was brought to the DIY station. Guests used an assortment of stickers, tapes, colored papers and Instax photos to make loved ones sweet and quirky notes. Past Space 24 Twenty Workshop Host Jessica Mendez offered her calligraphy skills to those who wanted to take their cards to the next level. 

Khrissy from Bird's Barber Shop impressed us all with a variety of hair styles for the ladies, from fish tails to crowns to the more traditional french braid. 

Chris Smith (aka Moonlight Gram) kept the vibe feeling fresh with his upbeat setlist, switching from old favorites like Neil Young and Aretha Franklin to more contemporary hits from artists like Rihanna, Jessica Lea Mayfield and Michael Kiwanuka. 

All in all, the event was a nice close to the weekend. Though we probably ate one too many cookes ;)
