Also tonight, Clementine and Ashby are hosting a First Fridays pop-up from 6 to 9 p.m. at 16 W. Broad St. (next door to Max’s). There’ll be clothing and accessories for men and women, plus locally made jewelry.
In Carytown, Need Supply Co. is hosting the latest in its "Meet the Maker" series with designer Clare Vivier, who will be in the store from 7 to 9 p.m. Stop by to meet her, check out an exclusive Need x Clare Vivier clutch, and sample some customer cocktails provided by Saison.
Tomorrow is the Richmond Craft Mafia’s Spring Bada-Bing at Hardywood. Shop more than 50 crafters, both from Richmond and across the nation, while you sip a beer — this means you can probably even drag your husband or boyfriend along.
Also tomorrow, the shops near Acacia Midtown are having a Midtown Sidewalk Sale. Acacia will have some glassware and such for sale, along with a wine tasting from noon to 1 p.m. and crab cake sandwiches to-go from 11:30 to 1 (or until they sell out). Neghbors Bohland and Graham, The Clothes Rack, Re-Cycles and U-Fab will also be participating.
She figured other moms probably had similar problems, and started Gandzee about a year ago. Nomberg now goes to markets and selects collections for boys and girls for each season. The collections of eight, six or four pieces are chosen from a variety of clothing lines to mix, match and coordinate without any hassle (pieces can also be purchased separately). “The looks go from top-to-bottom and are meant to be interchanged,” she says. “Kids are like little adults — they like to feel unique and express themselves.” The clothes Nomberg selects are also play-proof. In order to make it into a collection, a piece of clothing must be stylish, comfortable and durable.
Gandzee is primarily sold online, but for a week starting on Saturday, the brand will be holding a pop-up shop at Short Pump Town Center next to Build-a-Bear. “People can really see how everything goes together,” Nomberg says.
And, if you head out to Short Pump for some kid-friendly shopping over the weekend, drop by the grand reopening of Buttons & Bows, which is taking place Saturday and Sunday. New owner Amanda Ayers is ready to welcome Richmond, and is hosting all kinds of events. There’ll be pictures with the Easter Bunny from 2 to 4 p.m. both days, and you can make an appointment with silhouette artist Lilli Wills on Saturday if you call the store. Shop all weekend, and pick an egg at the checkout for a chance to save up to 50 percent off your purchase. Plus, if you bring one non-perishable food item to donate to FeedMore, you’re guaranteed at least 20 percent off your purchase.
