Over the weekend I was invited to attend American Field, an all American Pop-Up Market focusing on brands made in the USA. I love it when my work life and my blogger life collide. During the day I work with labor unions, which are organizations grouped by profession (teachers have a labor union, firefighters have a labor union, even retail workers at Macy's and H&M have a labor union) that advocate for safer working conditions, living wages and the rights of workers on the job. So being able to connect with entrepreneurs that are creating products and jobs here in the US was a treat. There were tons of great items for sale and some especially great pieces for men (just in time for father's day). I walked away with a new fragrance from Abbott NYC that I'm obsessed with for summer, a sick B.A. Superhero cape teeshirt for a special little girl who is a DC native, a cool new key ring from Craighill for my dog walker so she doesn't have to carry around her janitor key ring and a new found obsession with Polar Seltzer (Rose wine spritzers anyone?) and Virginia Dare Winery, which are luckily both available at the Harris Teeter near my office.
The event will return to the DC area this fall so make sure to follow American Field on social media for more information; and if you're in Boston or Brooklyn they're headed your way this year as well!
