A new venture…

So…I have some rad news! Haberdash has a new permanent home in Worcester’s Canal District. In addition to that awesomeness her new home is in an Antique and Artisan Mall that I am also opening in the Canal District!
My quest for the perfect retail space has been going on for many, many moons. The entrepreneur in me was always torn between Boston and Worcester but my heart was always in the Canal District. With that being said, I hope you will follow along as I dive in to this new business venture!



New Antique Mall opening September 2012!

Looking for antique dealers and handmade crafters for our upscale Antique and Artisan Mall located in a historic building in Worcester’s Canal District.

The Crompton Collective will feature antiques, handmade items, vintage treasures, painted furniture,
shabby chic decor and many more unique items. It will be a fun place
to shop for distinctive home decor and imaginative gifts.

We have 3 kinds of booths available:
$75 (locked case), $100 (large shelving unit), $200 (floor space)
Vendor space available for quality antique dealers only.
No work time required.

Haberdash at SoWa

We spent our Sunday soaking up the sun at SoWa Open Market. It was so nice to meet some new mobile shop fans (thank you Today Show). We had a really early load in time this week, which gave me a few hours to organize The Hab the way I used to when I first opened her. All the purses are done by size and dresses by color. I havent had time to do that in a really long time. So if you came to see her, I hope you enjoyed your visit! We will see you again July 8th!

Modcloth Adventures in Style

About a month ago the friendly peeps over at Modcloth reached out and asked me if I would be willing to share a location in Boston that I think is beautiful with their readers. Since they asked so nicely…you can see the new Modcloth lookbook here: Adventures in Style.

Haberdash on the Today Show

It’s been a pretty exciting day here in the Punky household. My mobile shop the Haberdash was featured on the Today Show in a segment about the Fashion Trucks. I’m still flying high with excitement. If you want to see us, we are 3:30 min in!

Dress Swap

Facebook has made everyone a celebrity: You can’t possibly wear the same dress to one friend’s wedding as you wore to another’s! Come swap those fancy frocks & formal duds (and sparkly, shiny shoes & accessories) with us at The Swapaholics’s first Wedding Season Swap & Shop.

Bring 1-2 fancy dresses/ensembles and 2-3 other mix-and-match cocktail fashion pieces — bridesmaids getups & costume jewelry are A-OK — and go home with a handful of new “wedding season” wardrobe staples for this summer’s calendar of special events, all while sipping bubbly & noshing chocolate fondue with the rest of Boston’s best dressed in the gorgeous 40Berkeley courtyard.

Restore Recap

How did I forget to post these photos from our mobile shop event with Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore?
I had so much fun hanging out at the ReStore for the day with The Haberdash. If you visited, I hope you found some cool items for your home or closet and learned a little about Habitat for Humanity and the lovely things they do! I plan to partner with them again soon! So if you want to keep in touch, follow them on Facebook! Also…big thanks to the Kona Truck and Goulds Hots Dogs for keeping us well fed!

Twigs and Heather

Over the past 7 years running this blog, I must have mentioned Twigs and Heather a at least a dozen times! I absolutely love their jewelry!

Each of their twigs, shells, flowers and bark creations are cast in Sterling Silver from the actual organic object making them one of a kind. They are hand picked by Heather and Kerry throughout New England. You can find them at Start on the Street this Sunday!

Wendy Baker

How I never met Wendy Baker is beyond me. We seem to travel in the same circles searching for pretty old stuff! Wendy makes funky jewelry out of unused vintage jewelry stock and other interesting old neglected elements.

Look for the Bendywho booth at StArt on the Street this Sunday!

Popko Shop

I always love visiting the Popko displays at StART on the Street! Their display is very well designed and kinda reminds me of my childhood science fair…only more beautiful! Rest assured no butterfiles were harmed in the making of her jewelry! Stop by her booth on June 3rd to see where the wings come from.

Viola Lovely

Viola Lovely is one of those names I heard over and over again in the Boston fashion scene. But it never really sunk in till my fashion sole-mate started working there. When Janine started to describe the store and told me the owner was from my home town, I knew I had to visit soon!
I wish I had planed my vist around the shop pups schedule. I would have to loved to meet those weimaraners I see hamming it up on Instagram and Facebook. But even without pups the shop was every thing I dreamed of and more, take a peek for yourself!

The Dogs of Haberdash

Yesterday was the first SOWA Open Market of the season for our Mobile Shop. It was so nice to see all our Boston friends and their pups out and about enjoying the nice weather! There is something about the Haberdash that dogs love, maybe they think it is a glamourous dog house for them? I thought it would be cute to document all our puppy visitors for our Facebook page. Here are some of my favorites!
