Last week marked our first ever community-hosted Big Cartel meet up - and from all of the feedback we’ve received, it was nothing short of an amazing success! Current and potential Big Cartelers gathered in downtown San Diego to much on sweet desserts while chatting about all things business and more.
Over a dozen Big Cartel shops from around the country donated incredible items for our complimentary goodie bags. Everyone at the meet-up got to take home an adorable bag full of amazing Big Cartel swag - proving that we really do have the most awesome shops ever.
We Love Citrus
We’re happy to introduce you to some of our San Diego stores that were in attendance at the meet-up for this week’s FSF Group Show - beginning with our hostess with the mostest: We Love Citrus.

Robots are Matt Spangler’s specialty. His passion for technology, geekology, science, space, nerdisms shine through in his lovable ‘bots. His shop offers robot themed tees, cards, prints, and pairings. But remember that no matter what you buy, Matt says you can never own a robot - only contain them until the robot overlords take over.
