HAMMS Event 2013


HAMMS Event

HAMMS Event

This past Saturday I attended the HAMMS event at the old HAMMS Brewery Shipping docks in Saint Paul. It was a really fun time and I was able to buy a few items that I have been pining over including Dessa lipstick from the Elixery.

What made this event fun was that you actually could speak with the business owners and learn more about why they do what they do. Plus, it was dog friendly!

The event lived up to the title Help A Minnesota Maker Succeed. The event planners reached their goal to be able to give one vendor $5,000 to use to expand their business.

I shopped until I dropped on Saturday. The first item I bought was a glass water bottle from Moss Envy in pink. Moss Envy is now going to be my go-to place for gifts. They have many practical and usable items that people would love to get for a special event such as a birthday or wedding.

Moss Envy has a retail store near the Whole Foods in Uptown. If you mention my blog (mlsgossipgirl) and the HAMMS event Ryan the co-owner extended an offer of $5 off your $25 purchase.

The market baskets from Jeanne Beatrice were a hit. I received many compliments when I was walking around the event with my new La Vie Henna.

Jeanne Beatrice bags are the perfect summer market accessory. I cannot wait to bring mine to the Minneapolis Farmers Market once it warms up.

Float

I loved these arm warmers from Float many of them are made with cashmere. They are a great item to keep in your purse for when you get cold. Plus, they come in many vibrant colors.

Violent Lips

I was surprised by these game day lip tattoos from Violent Lips. I know some hardcore Vikings fans that would sport them proudly at each game.

Bruno Press

These hilarious cards from Bruno Press had me laughing. They are the perfect cards for someone you know well enough that you can say offensive things in front of them.

Larissa Loden

These map necklaces from Larissa Loden are a great way to remember a special trip or a place that you lived.

Oh Dier

I wish I was decorating something right now. I loved everything that Oh Dier had at this event. They had the cutest chalk boards for your cabin and blocks for a new baby.

Yum! Not only was there great shopping at the HAMMS event there was great food. Gastro truck had a large menu of delicious items to choose from and I couldn’t choose just one.

Beef Brisket Sandwich

The first item I tried was a Beef Brisket sandwich. It was flavorful and I loved the aioli on top.

HAMMS12

Lamb Burger

The best part of the lamb burger was the choice of all the homemade condiments that I could choose from. Pickled red onion and ketchup topped my lamb burger along with the feta and olive spread.

Hopefully, the HAMMS event is an event that is continued in the future. I am already looking forward to it and I think all the dogs that were there are too!

because I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday.

    -sigh- wish I could have been there, was considering it ever since I first saw the Trucks post about it, but things come up… Glad to see the local businesses were able to get some coverage and attention though!

      It was a lot of fun! I am hoping that they have the event again next year. I think the event got some buzz and if they do it again it will have even more attendees. Hopefully, more food trucks too!
