While Danielle Fleming, founder and CEO of NOTE, considers the pop-up shop to pay homage to her Clarks Summit roots, she is also bringing along a curated selection of local makers and artisans to join her.
“I opened my first retail store, Danielle and Company, in Clarks Summit in 2004, and Clarks Summit is my hometown,” Fleming said in a news release. “It has always had a place in my heart and I am excited to go back and show everyone all of the wonderful things NOTE has to offer.”
Opening on Black Friday and staying open until the end of January, the NOTE Fragrances Pop-Up Shop and Local Marketplace will feature all the NOTE products, including Clarks Summit-inspired holiday gifts, as well as the Custom Perfume Studio experience and private perfume parties that NOTE has become known for.
With all of NOTE’s products being made by hand by the brand, its belief in locally-made and supporting those maker’s behind the brands was what encouraged Fleming to bring eight other local makers with her to make up the “local marketplace” within the Pop-Up Shop.
“There is so much talent in the region and supporting local has a ripple effect that is so important to the local economy.” she said in the release. “When you spend your dollar locally, not only are you supporting the maker behind the brand, you are also supporting their family, their employees, other local services they use and the local economy.
“Shopping local is just a win-win.”
The list of local Makers includes: AOS Metals, Valerie Kiser Design, Newkirk Honey, The Post Home and Body, Ambiance Floral Design, Duvall Leatherworks, Sutton Family Skin Care and Nibbles and Bits.
The Pop-Up Shop and Local Marketplace, located at 312 S. State St. in Clarks Summit, will be open every day from Black Friday to Christmas Eve and Tuesday through Saturday for the month of January. For more information about the shop and its upcoming events, visit NOTEfragrances.com.
