Manic Pop is Going Mobile! Boutique, That Is.

Here's the deal: I know I mentioned a hiatus from Manic Pop for a bit, but Manic Pop will NOT let me quit for some reason.

Instead of fighting it, I am going with it.

Super-excited to announce that I am going full time with Manic Pop here on out but with a much-expanded product line of many crafty retro things such as my original handmade garments, totes, accessories. Stay tuned for all the product I have lined up!

Currently, here is what is happening: 

-In the middle of securing another van for the Manic Pop mobile boutique - follow the Twitter page @manicpopbus to see where we are! Currently building up inventory for the next few months but will be gearing up for a "Midwest Tour" in 2015.

 (Ok, I only wish this could be the bus, but I'll create something as cool as I can.... plus dependable.)


-Videographer is doing a profile on me and my design work with Manic Pop in the studio!

-Also was just given the domain name ManicPop.com ever so kindly by Michael Alan Perry, former owner of the late great Manic Pop Records based out of Minnesota. You can now contact me/send inquiries/custom requests to nicole@manicpop.com as well as access the blog by typing in www.manicpop.com!


This also means the PDF patterns are in the works again (get ready for the Petra dress!) No expected timeline on those, but I'll be working on them for sure! These are definitely something I would like to offer.

For inspiration, let's take a look at photos I dug up on the internet of fun fashion trucks, campers, and mobile boutiques alike!








 Totally in love with Lodekka, out of Portland, OR.

    1. Thanks! It's so nice to be able to work on things. I genuinely was almost trying to make myself less-wanting of a creative lifestyle. I don't know who the hell I was trying to kid - I can't NOT be creative. It was just time.

  4. Yay! So great to see you back! I have never seen a travelling boutique! We don't have these in Australia yet! I hope it all goes well!

  5. They're becoming fairy popular in certain places. It's something I've wanted to do for a while now but I kept getting in the way of myself (as always!). It'll be an adjustment, but I'll find a way to sustain it all. :)
