Every month in downtown Brooklyn, there’s only one place I can think of where I can find the latest and greatest in local artists and entrepreneurs. Come with me as I give you a little glimpse of where small business people and like-minded individuals should spend their time before they hit it big!
Sip. Shop. Eat! is an immersive pop up featuring indie brands in celebration of food, style and drinks.– Taylar Coylar
SSE launched in April 2017 as a curated marketplace of highly talented: food/drink purveyors vintage dealers, jewelry makers, artists, lifestyle and fashion designers independently sharing, showcasing and selling their work.
The experiential marketplace currently resides in Brooklyn, NY and pops up once a month at Beyond Studios!
Taylar Coylar is the amazing woman behind this entire idea of finding the perfect pop-up to showcase hers as well as many other local businesses products and inventions.
While looking for just the spot to showcase her own brand, The Bela Noelle Collective, she thought to just create the pop-up herself!
It was a nice treat to hear from her and invite me out to check out her one-of-a-kind space first hand and in person.
Without further ado, lets get to some CREATIVES!
