What's up, everyone?! Welcome back to a day in the life of a small business owner with Hypnotik Bay Area (That is H-Y-P-N-O-T-I-K BAY AREA.) Today, I'm taking you on a journey through our incredible experience at the Link Up @ The Stockton Kings Arena.
Man I got up hella early! I made the journey from Marin County near San Francisco so it was roughly an hour and a half to get there. The event took place from 1 PM to 5 PM so a little shorter than last year.
Here is my tower of greatness, hopefully OSHA certified. We got a bunch of containers with all our different sizes for shirts, hoodies, and crew necks. I a master of the bungee chords, or at least I think so, got the chairs hooked up on the sides, and our separate wagon as well. Was it difficult to bring everything in? You could say that. I did meet some kind folks that aided in me bringing everything in so shout out to ya’ll.
I made it through security, but the tower was two containers too tall so I had to break it down a bit, which resulted in a few extra trips through the corridor. Okay maybe more than a few.
First things first, check out our booth!
The breakdown is always an interesting journey, we’re setting up the racks and the table and the overall presentation. Very important.
We went all out with our latest streetwear collection, showcasing our designs and exclusive drops. 🔥
From bold graphics to unique patterns, we had something for everyone.
We had a whopping 295 shirts on our rack, along with 40 crew necks and hoodies. We don’t play no games around here. If you’re in plus size range man do I have a collection for you.
In case you weren’t already familiar, my name is Francois. I’m the Creative Director of Hypnotik Bay Area, I design and manufacture all of our collections by hand made here in Marin County.
I create the artwork.
I print all the garments. I also tie-dye and bleach them as well.
No two shirts are the same. There is always a little bit of variation with our garments, which always adds that exclusive touch.
You can always feel confident that your shirt is handmade and one of a kind. Produced locally as well.
If you wanna check out the limited collection we sell in person, check out the limited edition section on our website www.hypnotikbayarea.com. Our newest addition to the collection are mugs.
Meeting all of you in person was the highlight! Sharing stories, getting feedback, and connecting with fellow fashion lovers - that's what it's all about. 💬
Your energy and passion for streetwear and sneakers were contagious.
The Stockton Kings Arena served as the perfect backdrop for this fashion expo. The vibes were high, the creativity was flowing, and we were right at home in the heart of it all.
Big shoutout to everyone who stopped by, copped some gear, and vibed with us. Your support means the world, and we couldn't do this without you.
And of course, major props to the Stockton Kings Arena for hosting such an epic event. We're already counting down the days until the next one!
