It has been a crazy couple weeks here at the Will Leather Goods offices, but we just wanted to take this time to send a huge thank you to the Austin community, and everyone who came out to celebrate our grand opening. Thanks for welcoming us with such open arms. We are beyond excited to be here! Another big shout out to all the amazing people and brands that helped us pull off a grand opening party for the books.
When planning the party, we really wanted to find a way to honor our new community and incorporate some of our Oregonian quirkiness at the same time. We thought, “what better way to bring two communities together than over drinks?” We brought our favorite wine from Oregon and complimented it with the best ciders in Austin! Thanks so much to the folks at Union Wine Co. and Austin Eastciders, for coming out and supporting us. We urge everyone reading this (who is 21+) to give them a try! Two astounding local brands that truly love what they do, and do a damn good job at it. And of course a special thanks to DJ Chorizo Funk for setting the mood!
Last but definitely not least a special thank you to Ms. Steffi Lynn for coming out and painting the newest edition to our storefront cows. And huge props for being able to take our probably vague direction, mesh it with your own style, and come up with a work of art that truly encompasses our brand. This will definitely go down as one of our favorite cows! For more amazing work by Steffi please head over to her Instagram @haveanicedayy_ or website www.steffilynn.com
The last big story to report on was the arrival of our new, Austin City Tote. If you are unaware, we create custom City Totes that are extremely personal to each city we call home. With the grand opening coming up in Austin, it was all hands on deck to get the new Austin totes out. There were delays in production and shipping, but in true Will fashion, everyone stepped up and delivered an incredible new tote that we know you’re going to love.
Keep Austin Tote
Thanks again to everyone who came out to celebrate with us. We were overjoyed by the warm welcome into our new community.
The Will Team
