The kickoff for the Topo pop up shop went down on Friday and we are now fully stocked on bags, belts, tees and other limited edition goods. I think it is safe to say that if you are looking for the ultimate source of local clothing and accessories, we’ve got it. All of this will be available in our store through the end of April so make sure you stop by and say hello!

Topo Designs Pop-Up Shop at Akinz

topo-designs-pop-up-shop-akinz

What: A Pop-up shop from one of our favorite brands, Topo Designs, who is based out of Denver, Colorado and makes high quality bags, accessories, and apparel. Everything they make is produced in the USA with a high focus on quality.

We’re bringing some of their most popular products to our shop as well as some sneak peek products that haven’t even dropped on their own website yet. Expect a new bag and some fresh t-shirts. The shop will set up in our Fort Collins store this Friday thru the end of the month for you to check out. Come this Friday to Shop Late Fridays to check out the goods, grab some stickers, and support another Colorado brand re-building US manufacturing.

When: Shop Late Friday 4/11 from 6pm to 9pm
(can’t make it this Friday? We’ll have the products thru the end of the month, but be sure to come by before all the best goodies are gone!

Why: The shops in Old Town Fort Collins are starting a new tradition called Shop Late Fridays. Every 2nd Friday of the month, shops will be open later than usual featuring special events and discounts.

We plan on using this event to bring some of our favorite brands and industry partners to you in the form of trunk shows and pop-up shops. In addition to the special events we’ll be offering, we also plan on having a standing 20% discount on all Akinz products… but only from 6pm – 9pm so make sure to stop by each month!

We chose Topo Designs as our first brand to feature cause we think they’re awesome and we know you will too.

RSVP to the event on Facebook to stay tuned for special deals and product information.

First Friday With “Professor Lunchbox”

April is here already and as usual we set it off with a great First Friday featuring Benjamin Givens, AKA Professor Lunchbox. In between screen printing we managed to have a high kick contest that probably should not have happened in a space this small. Either way, we had a great time and we will have the Mermaid Party and Rocket Boy tees available all month. Here are some pics recapping the night- IMG_4096

One and Done Wednesday – Week 2

This week’s one of a kind offerings are on the site and ready for your grubby little hands to snatch up before someone else does.

Search all one of a kind beanies.

Introducing One & Done Wednesdays!

Around the Akinz shop, we like to play around with lots of different colorways and see what we like best. We wanted to be able to share these custom options with our online community as well as our in store crowd, so we’ve introduced ONE & DONE Wednesdays. Each Wednesday we will release custom colorways and one of a kind items online. Once they sell, then they’re done.

Not only is this a fun way to get our experiments out to the online community, but this is also a great way for you to get a custom item without paying a custom upgrade fee… everyone wants to be unique after all.

This weeks options can be found in our custom beanies section.
