I was so excited to see the Red Earth Trading Co. logo in a storefront in Hillsboro Village last week.
I met some of the folks with Red Earth in December while I was in New York City for my annual Christmas visit. They had a pop-up shop in SoHo one afternoon. It was great to meet them and spend the evening hearing more about Red Earth and Global Support Mission, the non-profit that owns Red Earth, and just hanging with good, interesting, fun people.
Well, now Red Earth Trading Co. is opening a pop-up shop in Hillsboro Village in Nashville April 5 to 21 to launch its spring 2012 line. I love me a pop-up shop!
So who/what is Red Earth Trading Co.? It is an international direct trade company based out of Nashville. It launched in 2010 and works with artisans in Kenya and Uganda who hand craft quality jewelry, accessories and home goods. Red Earth imports these products and sells them throughout the U.S. and is owned by non-profit Global Support Mission.
The store hours will be:
Monday – Thursday: 10 am – 9 pm
Friday – Saturday: 10 am – 10 pm
Sunday: 11 am – 6 pm
The store will be located at 1817 21st Ave. South. GO CHECK THEM OUT! Shop for Mother’s Day, birthdays, early Christmas shopping!
I will have to check it out once I get back to town April 10, so leave some stuff for me!
