Swell times at inaugural American Field event in Boston

2 October 22, 2012
Just back from American Field, a two-day consumer show spotlighting 'made in the USA' brands taking place in Boston's South End this past weekend. These shows are always a risk to sign up for, especially the inaugural event when kinks have yet to be identified/worked out. Pleased to say it was well worth the effort and $. Sold enough product to cover our costs plus a little extra, met a bunch of new and existing customers, sampled some curious folks, connected with some other indie brands, chatted with some friendly bloggers and generally had a good time. The location for American Field could not  have been better btw - what a spectacular building (formerly a railway power station built in 1892)! Hats off to the organizers and to some old and new friends, among them: Rancourt & Co. - hand-made shoes from Maine Ball & Buck - purveyor of American menswear/gear in Boston General Knot & Co. - handmade ties from New England Red Wing Shoes - no explanation necessary Almanac Industries - book covers, letterpress, dopp kits Topo Designs - sporty bags and accessories from CO Jack Robie - snappy shirts for men (two former bankers get creative) 10 Engines - family/food/library/rural/transatlantic N'eaststyle - a New England style guide Bornhardt - handsome handmade wood/steel tables Taylor Stitch - shirts, shirts and more shirts hailing from SF with roots in Maine Frost River - canvas/leather gun cases++ Stormy Kromer - the iconic New England fall/winter hat Hudson Sutler - simple, colorful duffels with a twist Shwood - "the original wooden eyewear" Folk - real American living Black Magic Coffee - black magic coffee Let's do it again next year!
