HOLId-eh pop up launch party

While the weather outside was most definitely frightful on December 13th, the party was Oh So delightful last night at Little Mountain Shop. The holiday drinks were sparkling as was the jewelry and we were all very much full of Christmas cheer (and delicious cookies from the wonderful Cake by Annie

All attendees were entered to win a gift basket from several of the vendors including The Bobo Shop, Five15, Loa Skin, Paper Label, Tuck Shop Trading Co, Flannel Foxes, Fuhr Co, Gus Sloan, Woash Wellness, Typecart, Lisa Warren Ceramics, Hana Pesut, She's So, and of course, Lover's Tempo.

Five15: "Five15 is an accessories & apparel shop based in Vancouver, BC. All of our products have a message, and were created for feminists, animal lovers and kind people."

Flannel Foxes: "Our products are, whenever possible, made in Canada. That means that we make durable, quality clothes with partners that treat their people right"

LOA Skin: "LOA was born out of the need to empower people from all walks of life to overcome their skin adversity and claim their inherent right to natural beauty."
Kismet: "We launched our business based on our belief that your self-care products should only contain the essentials, and nothing more. We like to keep things pretty simple around here, so you won’t find any harmful fragrances or toxins in any of our products. Instead, you’ll see only effective all-natural and organic ingredients."

Homecoming: "At Homecoming we handcraft our candles with the finest ingredients in our studio located in Vancouver, BC. Founded in 2012 our scents are inspired by life on the West Coast: damp forests, the salty sea and sandy beaches."

We had a great time getting to know some of the other wonderful vendors that were also participating in the Holid-eh Pop Up, like Nicole from Paper Label Sleep and Sachiell from Ritual Botanica. We couldn't help but shop some of the goodies at the shop for ourselves and our holiday gift lists as well!

Ritual Botanica: "Born from the heart of a plant lover, herbalist, gardener, activist and maker devoted to quality and unique craft."

Paper Label: "Created by women for women, Paper Label is well-considered, clever lounge + sleep wear that will move you through the day from sleep to street."

It was wonderful getting out into our community to meet our customers and fellow Vancouver designers and makers. Our little team at Lover's Tempo spends most of our days sitting at our desks in the office and it's easy to forget that at the end of the long road of packing and shipping orders there is a happy face delighted about the beautiful jewelry they get to pick out for themselves. 

Thank you to everyone who came out to the event and all of the great vendors who participated in the promotions and giveaways. We had a fantastic time and hope that you all did as well!
