I've been wanting to start a monthly newsletter for a long time now and finally decided it's time.
June was an absolute whirlwind here at Essbe.
On June 1st, Jenna and I were in wrapping up our trip to Vegas for PJX (the very first permanent jewelry expo!). It was 3 days of absolute insanity and I truly could not have done it without her. We were able to meet so many incredible business owners and network with other people in the industry. I think pouring into the community for those 3 days what exactly what I needed!
Taylor Swift came to Detroit to play at Ford Field so, of course, we needed to celebrate that. We did a Swiftie pre-party at The Old Shillelagh which was a blast. We got to see everyone's friendship bracelets and get them linked up. In case you haven't seen yet, we did make our own version of friendship bracelets that are still available on our site.
I had a major pinch me moment in the middle of June when we got to do a pop-up at Madewell! It was so surreal to be asked to come to a brand's store that I love and is so huge. We popped up at their Somerset Collection location in Troy.
Sidetrack Bookshop is one of my favorite stores in Royal Oak. The owners and entire team are the nicest humans, they have a huge selection of kid's books which Theo loves, and the community they've built is unmatched. We popped up for their 1st birthday party celebration. It was so fun to get everyone linked up there and to be included in celebrating their first year of many!
In between all of that, I hired a new full-time team member to add to our growing team. We are still looking for a couple more key team members to complete our little Essbe fam.
We're halfway through the year so I can only imagine what the second half will bring.
As always, thank you so much for following along on our crazy adventure, it means more than you know!
