Why a pop-up?
WHY NOT?! Pop-up shops are trending in other cities like New York City, Los Angeles, Austin and San Diego. We love the idea of being able to bring a hip vibe, as well as local designers to Annapolis. Plus, having five kids between us... it's the perfect way to have a retail shop without a year-long lease!
Where & When do we pop-up?
We pop-up in and around Annapolis, Maryland. We open our brick & mortar shop about 3-4 times a year. We use a new retail location, usually a vacant space, for a limited time, designed to generate excitement with a seasonal and/or inspired theme. This creates an appealing and unique shopping experience... always sure to awaken your desire for great LOCAL products in a rare and fun setting. We like to think of it as a 10-20 day event!
So come see us! We'll be waiting for you HERE.
Who are we?
Amy Altenburg - Amy was born and raised in Wisconsin and graduated from Marquette University with a degree in Communications. In 1996 she moved to Baltimore where she pursued her love for fashion and photography at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Now, she and her 3 kids (son Jack, 12
and twins, Max and Lola, 9) live in Manhattan Beach. While she has a great job in the mortgage industry that gives her flexibility and stay super involved with her kids, she also longs to feed her true calling of bringing her love of fashion to the Annapolis area.
Ellen Lunay - Ellen graduated from UMD, College Park, with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and worked in the industry both in New York & Los Angeles until 2005. Moving back East, to an awesome neighborhood in Arnold (where she and Amy became friends), was definitely the best for her growing family. This mom of two girls: Lucy, 14 & Izzy, 11, is co-owner of bosunsupplies.com, a stainless steel marine supplier. While she loves working with her husband of 17 years, and the flexibility to be with her kids, her true passion is fashion and she is very excited to be in the mix of it with her style-sista, Amy!
