Collaboration over competition.
It's something owner of Sweet Baton Rouge - Meredith Waguespack - is passionate about. It's one reason we've loved carrying the Sweet Baton Rouge brand since we opened our storefront in 2014.
We've always had a positive experience when working with this local brand, but it wasn't until 2019 that our working relationship with Meredith grew tremendously. In August of 2019, Meredith invited us to participate in her first-time event, The Ultimate Tailgate at Perkins Rowe. It was on this sweltering August afternoon that we sold out of almost all things gameday and girl, what a great "problem" to overcome.
Shortly after that event, Meredith popped up in store at SoSis to celebrate our 5th birthday. During this event, she invited us to participate in the 2nd year of her Local Pop Up passion project. I call it this because the amount of work put in to support local makers HAS to be the passion of the person in charge - Meredith. For two weeks, we popped up inside the Local Pop Up as the only women's boutique "store within a store." We were honored and when all was said and done - super grateful.
In all of these collaborations, Sweet Baton Rouge never once worried about either one of us "competing with each other." It was like we all understood that "together we can make something truly meaningful."
And that we did. Because of one woman who lifted up two others.
