Hello friends! I shared on Instagram a few weeks ago that I hosted a DIY “Bling Your Terrarium” kids event with SixDoors at Carmel Blue in North Beach, SF. It’s the neighborhood where I grew up, so it’s always nostalgic to be back in the area.
Have you heard of SixDoors yet? Not surprise if you haven’t, because I just learned about it myself. It is a new app that lets you discover and buy unique products from the best San Francisco stores and brands. They make it really easy to shop from your phone and offers same day delivery. Remember this handsome cheese board I got from Half Hitch Goods? They’re one of my new favorite vendors and I got this delivered to me under 3 hours. A service like this is super helpful because a lot of time I’m really last minute with gifts (yet I want to buy something special), so having this app at my finger tips is perfect!
One thing that SixDoors do is sponsor a variety of local events to promote the local shops and bring the community together. I think that’s a really nice idea. I was honored to host a kids one at Carmel Blue, a baby gear shop + pregnancy/parenting center. They loved what I did with Hayden’s birthday so we carried the idea to this event. It was so awesome to work with those little hands and creative minds on a Sunday afternoon. Kids are just so simple and honest and being around them is so much joy! I also love attending events where both of my kids can go, so having them watch mommy host one and participate feels pretty neat.
I know it’s Friday today, so I’m not going to babble too long! I know we all need to get some X’mas shopping done! Anyway, I just want to let you know that “shopping small” is not about Friday, Saturday, or Monday. It’s about everyday. For me, it’s part of my lifestyle. I support established brands as much as I support independent. I do love discovering unique products through local artisans and designers, so if I’m going to invest in a nice cheese board anyway, I’m going to support my talented local friends.
Ok, can I get a kiss now? :) To top it off, SixDoors is offering my SF readers “10% off first purchase + Free Delivery” on first order with promo code: SHOPSWEETTHINGS. They got some really nice folks behind this app who really believes in supporting local communities, so I’m just that much more incline to help them spread the word. I would really love for you to try it out and let me know what you think! Also, there are a handful of other bloggers running a giveaway for SixDoors so you may be able to win some free money there + some savings here. That’s a win-win! See the list below for participating boutiques and shop all the products in the app.
Happy weekend and hope you get some shopping done! xo Jeanne
