Pop Up Stores Down By The Riverside!

To start at the beginning of this post click here.

The headliners for Southern Makers were famous Alabamian Apparel Designers Natalie Chanin and Billy Reid. Both, in recent years, have moved their operations home to Florence, Alabama from New York and have embraced their roots as the world has embraced them.

He did a great job of helping people get a sense of what his real stores feel like. They are all decorated like houses in buildings made to feel old with lots of brick, art, family relics etc. You’ve never met anyone more laid back. Makes me wonder what he’s like when he’s stressed. Does he ever get stressed? Surely.

This was my very favorite “stage prop” that he used.

Cindy Barganier

They covered a long table and said, “Ducks in a row.” So cute.

This little one thought so, too.

Cindy Barganier

Cute peeps with peeps. 🙂

Cindy Barganier

Natalie’s store was next door.

If you aren’t familiar with her work, her garments are all handcrafted using quilting stitches and they are some of the softest things you will ever touch. Read her fascinating storyhere.

They both gave lectures or taught seminars.

It was great to see some really young folks in this seminar learning a trade.

Natalie’s daughter was very patient through it all. 🙂

Cindy Barganier

My team! They were awesome.

As some came to mingle

Cindy Barganier

some came to ponder apparently. tee hee

Cindy Barganier

He is so distinquished!

Some came to be inspired.

Cindy Barganier

my answer:

Cindy Barganier

 Some learned to print the old fashioned way.

Cindy Barganier

And others just enjoyed an afternoon together.

Cindy Barganier

For me, it was a whole lotta all of the above.

I was inspired. I learned. I saw lots of friends. I hopefully contributed.

It doesn’t get any better than that.

So here’s my shadow bidding you adieu and sayin’

Cindy Barganier

as I say goodbye to my own friends.

Cindy Barganier

M.R. I adore you and I always giggle when I see Greg’s eyes disappear every time he laughs.  You two help to make the South great.

Love you.

It’s a wrap!
