WOW! The Man Repeller family has had one heck of a month!
With so many of the kids home from college and the dog emotionally recovered from her mishap with that squirrel who we thought had rabies but was actually just drunk, we are busier than ever! Can’t even believe I got this newsletter out!
As for what we’ve been up to, the office is splitting its time between our usual location on Mott Street and our March pop-up at Canal Street Market, also known as MR Bazaar. All are welcome. No gifts, please; you’re the gift. Unless the gift is for yourself or someone you love, in which case, by all means! Some details:
Hats, boobs and limited-edition jackets
+ Blue hats, pink hats and “Boobies” mugs will all be restocked this Friday 3/17, ready for purchase at 3 P.M. Human Weekends are still up for grabs.
+ Boob lights are available to purchase here and are only available in March. All proceeds go to Planned Parenthood.
+ As for those limited edition jackets, JAYDEE will be at MR Bazaar on Saturday painting custom designs on vintage Levi’s denim jackets. All proceeds will go to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
+ So far, we’ve had two morning yoga sessions with Sky Ting Yoga where we stretched our calves and mooned the sun with our butts, etc.
+ We did a morning mediation with MNDFL and I wont say who did/didn’t fall asleep because no judgement in the MR Bazaar, just free naps.
+ We hosted a panel that featured the following Very Cool Women:
Lena Imamura, the Chief of Staff at Kickstarter and co-founder of Name Glo.
Celine Semaan, CEO and founder of Slow Factory, an apparel brand that aims to use fashion as a medium for social and environmental change.
Ksenia Avdulova, Founder of recipe and lifestyle website, Breakfast Criminals.
Holly Gleason, Founder of Gloria Grace, retailer of homemade decor and gifts from emerging designers.
Alice Wells, Founder of Kindred Black, a destination for luxury lifestyle goods that are eco-responsible, craftsman produced and ethically manufactured.
Johanna Peet, Founder of Peet Rivko, a unisex line of plant-based products for sensitive skin.
Where is this place again? Narnia?
Kind of! We are located inside Canal Street Market, at 265 Canal Street between Lafayette and Broadway. It’s closer to Lafayette. Walk in, head straight to the back and make the Hunger Games whistle noise if you need to. Hard to miss.
What are the hours to hang and what are the hours to shop?
Mon – Wed, 11AM – 7PM <- Hang, charge your phone, use the wifi, talk to us about your hopes, dreams and Irish soda bread recipes (no merch sales, unfortunately).
Thurs, 11AM – 8PM <- Same same but chill an hour longer!
Fri, 11AM – 3 PM <- Hang. THEN, from 3-8PM, the shop is officially open!

I feel like you just told me but how do I attend a community event?
What is everyone wearing to this thing???
Whatever you want! But here’s what people wore to our launch partay.
That’s all for now, the dog is chasing that drunk fool again! Khaki Wishes and Cookie Dreams!
