We’re still reeling from the whirlwind that was Upswing!
We packed our three-month pop-up with a bevy of activity and fun, but, the true stars were our three boxes and our five shop owners— Domestique Coffee, Great Bear and Hide & Hunter and Urban Vintage and Magic City T-Shirts— who occupied the space daily.
Using converted shipping containers to house them was the work of Eric Tasker, owner of SmallBox Company. Upswing is closed for the season, but stay tuned for what’s in store for 2020.
Watch below as he explains how the boxes are great for both small business owners and Birmingham:
