Streethub Named Desire
When StreetHub (now Trouva), the new click-and-collect website, suggested getting together to host a summer party, we weren’t slow to say yes! Great weather meant portents for immediate success. StreetHub showcases intriguing, independent local shops online. They are about celebrating stores with old style individuality. Places that make your heart race by offering those don’t-get-anywhere-else details. (Just like us, hopefully!) Their idea is that you shop online and then collect in store to experience that boutique vibe.
Although you can also get your goodies sent off on same day delivery. We usually find once people discover our store they love what we offer as well as the personal attention we give. So they return often and bring friends! So events like these really help stylish shoppers discover us.
As you can see from the photos, gorgeous weather helped deliver a perfect evening overflowing with bubbly, nibbles, special prizes and lots of chat. Some people shopped, while others used the time to add a few items to their wish list (we all know that our nearest and dearests sometimes need a little help when it comes to birthdays, anniversaries or Xmas!).
My retro-inspired dappled agate necklaces had arrived just in time and looked cool alongside the new pieces of semi-precious Jaipur jewellery. And several soft French linen scarves were snapped up – perfect for summer holidays – and so are presumably now sitting snugly in a lot of suitcases enroute to somewhere exotic. So a big thank you to StreetHub and the brilliant job they did making this event possible.
