The Sailboat: A Mobile Pop-Up Shop

TheeBlog_OceandAndSea You know that ol’ saying, “Surround yourself with positive, passionate, creative and inspiring dreamers…” well, it may not be a famous adage, but it is a principle I live my life by. And speaking of dreams and passion, today I want to share a fun project my friends Brendan and Amanda have been working on, and that with your support through Kickstarter, can become a reality. Their dream is to build a landlocked-sailboat that serves as a pop-up shop in order to travel across the US sharing their inspiration through workshops and spreading the word about their lovely brand Ocean&Sea

I met Brendan during a Chicago trip last year, (and I really think we were destined to become friends since we kept bumping into each other throughout the city…) Since then, we’ve kept in contact and inspiring each other through projects, emails or posts. I’ve witnessed first-hand how active and passionate Brendan is about everything he does, so when he told me about this new project, I didn’t think twice about sharing it here. Yes, the project is ambitious, but not impossible. And if we all help a little, we’ll do something great not only for Brendan and Amanda, but also for all the people they will meet, help and inspire.

Check out the video below and if you can, help them out!

It’s time to dream again and we’re welcoming anyone who desires to rekindle their own dreams to join us in creating that freedom.

Ocean & Sea is seeking help from dreamers across the world to build a sailboat—with a twist. This sailboat will be landlocked. It will function as a mobile Ocean & Sea pop-up shop through which we will sell our clothing, prints, accessories and lifestyle goods.

We think on some level we can all relate to the purity of dreams as a child. Yet, as Peter Pan warned us—somewhere along the way we grow up and forget about our dreams.

Through our sailboat we will sail to schools, universities, festivals and dock street side; invoking people to pursue their own dreams. Through interactive art workshops, partnerships with strategic non-for-profits and giving back to local communities through our array of sea-worthy goods, we hope to continue inspiring for generations to come.


Not only will you be helping my good friends Brendan and Amanda fulfill this awesome dream, you can also score some of their lovely goodies – I’ve been a fan of their work since I met them. Check out some of my favorites below, and check out their Kickstarter page for the entire collection!
