This past weekend Vanessa and I were lucky enough to work the St. Louis music festival LouFest, with Chicago-based clothing and accessories company Futurgarb. Although it was a huge departure from our job last week with Sowing Seeds Nursery, it wasn't any less of a blast or a learning experience. Working on the road allows us many different opportunities to highlight many of our skill sets and meet all different kinds of people.
Saturday and Sunday were spent selling Futurgarb merch, which overall was pretty amazing. As most of you know, I FREAKING LOVE HATS. The hipster in me craves wide brims and felts on a daily basis. Futurgarb has THE coolest and widest arrangement of hats I have ever seen. (Note: the post is not sponsored, I really just love hats, mmkay?). Besides hats, they had killer sunglasses, scarves, Eco-friendly wallets made of recycled bicycle tires -- just accessories galore. Which made this stuff really easy to sell.
Let's just say, Vanessa and I worked our butts off this past weekend. We were exhausted and on our feet for 12 hours each day, but it was well-worth the adventure. We met so many amazing people, we spent the weekend outside, we could dress up in festival-wear and showcase our individuality, we were able to listen to some kick ass bands all weekend (Billy Idol, Nate Ruess, Brandon Flowers, Misterwives, Young the Giant, Ludacris, and more), and most importantly we were together.
HUGE shoutout to Futurgarb. Thank you for a memorable weekend and an amazing festival.
