Good morning! I’m up bright and early (for me) and I have the launch month at Indie Pickup to share with you! This was a little hectic for me since it was the first month, but overall – I think it’s going to be fun! Here is the August 2018 Indie Pickup with a theme of Musicals (yup, just like Polish Pickup!)
I am the Blogger of the Month this month for Indie Pickup, but there are more items that will be in shop. It’s the first month and after Polish Pickup ended, not every maker had time to get their item to me (first launch.. it happens) but the items I did get were a nice variety.
Okay, so what’s Indie Pickup? If you are familiar with Polish Pickup, then you know it kind of blew up in the last year. We were seeing over 100 polishes and products in the shop (and still are) which is incredible. The ladies behind the Polish Pickup concept decided to split the products from the polish. You will still see some fan favorites in Polish Pickup (this last month we did have about 10 products mixed in with the polish) but the majority of products will now be featured in Indie Pickup (there’s the Facebook group, join it!)
So overall, same concept and month to month the theme will be the same for both Polish Pickup and Indie Pickup. Indie Pickup will take place on the third Friday of every month though to give you a little time to recoup after Polish Pickup.
Okay, let’s see these 32 items!
