April was a crazy month at Tchoup! We launched a new bag, went to lots of markets, had our one year anniversary, and celebrated with friends at our Open House. We’ve loved meeting fans and getting great New Orleans-made bags in to the hands of folks from all over the world. Thanks for a great first year, we hope to have many more to come!
A little of what we’ve been up to:
Tchoup Open House:
We loved celebrating our first year with friends, old and new. So many thank yous are in order; to anyone who has bought (and loved) Tchoup bags, Swamp Pop and Good Eggs for our great local party snacks, DJ Yes Kate Yes for keeping us dancing, and Pierre L’Esprit for being our ever-so-charming mascot.
Louisiana Bucket Brigade Earth Day Fest, NOLA:
Earth Day was the first festival we participated in, just to test Tchoup as an idea. We came back this year with the (Captain Planet approved) Le Tour Purse premier and haven’t looked back. This year’s fest included solar powered daiquiri’s, saving the world one drink at a time is the New Orleans way.
Festival International pop up, Genterie Supply co., Lafayette,LA:
There were more Swamp Pop Cocktails, great music, and of course amazing food. It was not a bad way to spend a day!
Jazz Fest pop up, Frontier, NOLA:
The Frontier Pop Up was put on with an amazing group of ladies who do cool things in New Orleans: Matter: Design for Social Change, DVRA, Blue Dream Vintage, and Smoke Perfume. Invade NOLA was also part of the fun, capturing everyone’s good side! Check out the pictures here.
Frenchmen Art Market(s), NOLA:
We will be back at FAM this Sunday, May 11 and in a few weeks on Sunday May 25.
