I was lucky enough to be invited to drop by the Chapters Indigo Fall Preview yesterday afternoon. Today is a bit of a relaxing day for me so I thought I'd put on the Camera Obscura, sit down, and write out a proper blog post about it.
All in all, the preview was a pretty neat experience! I think the set up was beautiful and now all I want is a hot cup of tea and something.... anything... that has maple in it. I think the great thing about Chapters is that it really does support independent businesses by opening up their product to a larger audience. Brands like Drip Maple, Studio Patro, Rifle Paper Co., Knot & Bow, Honeycomb Studio, among others (those are just the ones I can name off the top of my head) are all brands that I personally enjoy and love to see grow larger and become more successful. It's also a great way to make it much more accessible to the Canadian market. I think Chapters also focuses on finding and promoting products with good design which is so important to me! At the end of the preview, I walked away with a little gift bag that had a mug and candle and a copy of Covet Garden which I dove into immediately. (No Pluck Tea though... sad Andrea.)
On another note, I realize I rarely write blog posts. It's something that I'd like to get into doing more, but I won't be promising it to anyone. I think when I first started writing, I worried about having to write about what other people cared about, and then never wrote anything. But really, this blog is for me, just to write about interesting things that happen.... to me. So the next post might be this weekend, maybe a week from now, or maybe longer than that. We'll see! Thanks for reading.
