Nomad Market is a traveling installation featuring Apolis' collection, stories & films. The goal of our Nomad Market is to bring the inspiring talents & stories of our global artisans to a local marketplace. Since October 2012 Nomad Market has passed through ten neighborhoods within New York, Virginia, Tokyo, Michigan, Washington & California. We're thankful for the global response to Nomad Market!
We shared our eleventh Nomad Market inside Paseo Nuevo's Nordstrom in Santa Barbara. Our private reception was on December 10th with over 50 guests for a holiday party with drinks and a live conversation hosted by Apolis co-founders Raan & Shea Parton. Shea & Raan was asked a few through instagram and a few open mic questions from the audience. It was great to share the story of how Apolis has evolved over the years and answer a few honest questions about lessons we have learned since Apolis founders sold their first t-shirt in Santa Barbara in 1999. We would like to thank the Nordstrom team for their hard work and also all of our friends and Apolis Advocates who joined us in Santa Barbara. The Nomad Market will remain in Santa Barbara only through today, December 18th, 2015. Keep your eyes peeled for the Nomad Market in a neighborhood near you.
