things to do | thread @ union market


Last weekend, Union Market hosted it's first retail event at Dock 5.  Thread is a curated event with multiple types of merchandisers: apparel, home and beauty, shoes and accessories, and art.  Union Market hopes to make this a monthly event and if they do, you should check it out.  It's a cool assortment of items and the participants will vary at each event.  I snapped up some turkish kilim pillows at Meg Birams's outpost plus a great necklace from Scarpa.  I oogled all the pieces at St. Clair Jewelry and perused the home items at MACK home.  Thread also included a lot of items for men.  My favorites were Mutiny, Hugh & Crye, Moore & Giles, and Shockoe Denim.  There were 29 vendors and I've neglected a bunch. Below is a map of the event and a list of everyone that participated.
