A bobo storefront is comin ya'll!
I'm excited to share that San Jose Made is launching MOMENT, a set of four brand new creative retail spaces located in downtown San Jose's San Pedro Square, and bobo design studio was selected as one of four brands to be a part of this innaugural launch!
As a born and raised San Jose gal, I'm so stoked and thrilled to be asked to join San Jose Made in this exciting new retail space in Downtown San Jose! I have had the privelege to participate in a few San Jose Made Events, as well as teach workshops in conjunction with them, and I'm over the moon happy to be joining them on this next adventure.
In addition to the shopping experience, I am so excited to be hosting craft based workshops out of the space, continuing my efforts to bring affordable and fun new art skills to my community in a way that breeds creativity and inspiration in new and inventive ways.
Opening on May 18, 2018, MOMENT is a set of four dynamic micro-retail spaces designed and programmed to advance, grow and celebrate creative retail. Powered by San Jose Made, MOMENT embodies the urgency, immediacy and verve of today’s new retail and creative culture, featuring makers, creatives, artists and emerging brands for varying short-to-mid-length durations. Located in downtown San Jose within the ever-popular San Pedro Square neighborhood, MOMENT is perfectly positioned to elevate these already-amazing businesses, brands and talent to newer and greater levels of visibility at a time when San Jose itself is rising to newer and greater levels of visibility.
MOMENT arose from a Knight Cities Challenge grant awarded in 2015 to San Jose Downtown Association (SJDA), who envisioned the amazing things possible in converting twelve parking spaces on the sidewalk level of the San Pedro Market Parking Garage into four dynamic micro-retail spaces along with a sidewalk patio to add public space to our rapidly growing urban core. MOMENT is part of SPSQUARED, a SJDA initiative designed to activate, elevate and celebrate San Pedro Street within San Pedro Square.
As more info comes, I hope you'll be able to follow along as I start to build out my bobo store experience! I can't wait for you all to sit shotgun with me on this wild ride. And of course, if you are in the area, come on down to the Grand Opening May 18th, 19th, and 20th.
