Thanks for Celebrating With Us!

Posted on September 24 2019

Hi, Friends!

Just wanted to pop on and share some thoughts and some pics from our 5 Year Anniversary party. It was so much fun! Thank you to everyone who made it out on a hot Saturday to have some fun with us!

We raffled off 5 Levi's bags, 3 pairs of jeans, 2 smaller gift cards and one grand prize gift card of $500. Ralph Kacy of Double R Originals did some amazing embroidery and everyone had fun in the Photo Booth from Photomatica!

Owning a brick and mortar in the age of direct-to-consumer shopping is not for the feint of heart and sometimes I question why I keep at this, but days like Saturday make it all worth it.  Every smiling face that walked through the door to say hello and congratulate us for 5 years filled me with deeper and deeper pride for my little shop and what we've built here. I couldn't do it without my unbelievably amazing shop manager, Eden-Marcel and our newest sales associate, Annie. We have a small but mighty staff - growing a team of fun, easy-going and genuinely caring people to meet our community of equally fun and caring people is one of the best parts of owning a small business in Oakland, a city that shows up for its community like no other.  I am also supported by other amazing people who contract with me to help with design, website, photography, and merchandising, all of whom are people I have met just by being in my shop, open and available to meet and chat with anyone who walks through my door.  I could gush and gush forever about how much love I have for my city and my small business community, but I'll just keep it simple:  If I were not an Oaklander, there would not be a Maple Street Denim, and the continued support of our community means quite literally everything to me. 

Thank you thank you thank you thank you! We'll see you next time! If you took pics, make sure to tag us or DM us on Instagram!
