Hangout Fest 2016

We just got back from another AMAZING Hangout Music Fest in Gulf Shores, AL! The lineups were amazing, there were so many awesome places to unwind and tons of delicious festival food!IMG_5991-compressor
Everyone got off to a pretty rough start on Friday... we were supposed to be set up by 11 a.m. but the weather delayed everything until 3:30 p.m. We had fun waiting it out though... and they fed us so that always helps! (Thanks Hangout!)

We got an awesome opportunity to run the craft section of Camp Hangout! It was so fun sharing some of our all-time favorite crafts with hundreds of festival-goers!

This was by far our most popular! We tore up our 100% Silk Scarves and provided wood beads, feathers and Junk Market Charms to make Hippie Tie-In Headbands, Chokers and Wrap Bracelets!
Paint pens + shells... perfect craft to do on the beach!
Morgan, our e-commerce Specialist, had an awesome idea to hang up Tapestry Scarves above the crafts for shade and more importantly... beautiful decoration!

We witnessed so many small acts this weekend... people returning a full wallet, giving away fun treasures and letting festival-goers charge their phone in our booth so they can meet up with their friends! It's the little things!!
The view from our pavilion! Unbelievable!!
On Friday, a super ambitious SCAD student came into our pavilion and asked if she could use a few items to photograph with over the weekend. We had no clue what to expect but thought we'd give her a shot and...
We are blown away by her vision and talent!

Sierra's friend makes these bathing suits by hand! It's so inspiring to see her follow her passion and turn her dreams into reality!
Truth!
Thank you so much Hangout for having us! We're already counting down the days until next year!!
