Sip & Shop
Happy Monday Friends!
Last week we announced the winner of our first giveaway and it was so exciting! During that giveaway we received so much support. I am so thankful for each and everyone of you that entered! The giveaway was also my way of announcing some of the amazing people who will be sharing our space as vendors. By hosting these vendors along side me and the coffee shop by The Drinklings, we are creating a unique sip & shop experience in downtown Wilmore, Kentucky. I wanted to use the post today to give y’all a little background on each vendor we announced along with details on exactly what we will be offering in our space!
The Olive Branch Building
When I first told people we would be having different “vendors” in our downtown space, I got a few weird looks. Usually when you think vendors you picture a flea mall. Now I am a HUGE fan of flea malls and the treasures you can find there. It is not necessarily what I had envisioned for my boutique. Instead of allowing all types of vendors with no real planned aesthetic like most flea malls, my vision was something more customized and personal. Each vendor in our space has been hand picked because of their unique products, excellent quality and the overall look of their brand. I am curating a space of small business owners passionate about growing their clientele and providing a superb experience from start to finish for our customers. All of our vendors either hand make their products or spend countless hours searching for and building their inventory. Because of this each vendor is able to offer custom orders if they are desired and change their inventory as seasons and trends vary.

Sip & Shop & More…
Along with building a team of vendors and a unique shopping experience I wanted a space that would allow others to gather together. This desire has helped shaped the vision of the deck space in the back of our building. This space is very large and open, the perfect spot for large groups to come together. Whether that is through meetings and bible studies or more planned out gatherings such as events, we have the space for it all. Once we finalize our opening date (announcement coming VERY soon!!) I will develop our social calendar and open the space for events. I have already been in chats with some amazing people who want to share their talents and products with y’all! Not one to limit the use of a great space, you will also be able to “rent” our space for your own gatherings. Birthday parties, baby & wedding showers. For an additional fee I can assist you event planning and decorating. I am super passionate about helping families transform their homes but I am also passionate about helping others celebrate the good things in life!! The space is covered, will have seating for around 30 guests and have the perfect backdrop for all your photos and decor! Stay tuned for our event calendar and all the fun things we have planned!
