Catching up after a whirlwind weekend

82 Mercer Street in SoHo, New York City

What a weekend!  Where to even start?  I think I'll leave the full-on recap to our fearless co-founder Oliver (so check back for that later in the week).  For now, it's enough to say that a UM Crew consisting of Oliver, Emily, Carmen, Marshall, and me (Ollie B), stormed NYC this weekend for Pop Up Flea 2013.  Good times were had by all and we got a chance to meet and talk to customers face-to-face, which is always a blast.  Rest assured that more photos and stories from this event will come out in coming days.

Today's goal is to clean up some digital loose ends.  Committed blog readers might remember that we were asking for photo submissions depicting "the Ursa Major man" out on the trail a few weeks back.  Well, we're finally ready to announce the winner.  We had some great photos, but the consensus favorite in the office is this one below:

Congrats, Brent - you're the lucky winner of a Big Kahuna x Topo Designs Dopp Kit! We also want to recognize James Fox (of the awesome blog 10 Engines), Matt Milewski, and Ryan Castro for their runner-up submissions.
