Take a peek behind the scenes on our recent Curiosity Shop photo shoot in a vacant building on Deep Ellum in Dallas. Formerly the Art Bar & Cafe, this space was perfect for our shoot, with natural light and interesting textures in great supply.
We just had to clean it a bit first… The asthmatics among us insisted on a run to the drug store for face masks. It was a little ridiculously dusty up in there.
There’s always lots of product to organize on home decor shoots! Not to mention lots of product to transport to our location.
Props are essential. What looks like the contents of a Natural History Museum went back home after the shoot with our home goods buyer, but we each got to take a baby succulent home!
There may or may not have been a few jokes cracked on set about the new ceramic acupuncture models. What can we say? They have cute butts.
Being on set always means being enlisted to hold something.
If you’re the only person to show up on set in cute clothing, it may also mean being asked to model new necklaces.
We finished the day very dusty, but very happy with the images we captured! Be sure to check out the Curiosity Shop collection and see the fruits of our labor! It’s a ridiculously cool collection.
We have an awesome team of talented people who produce all the photography you see at Earthbound. Our shoots are always fun and rewarding. Here’s a peek at our team from the last shoot we did for our new Summer apparel hitting stores now! We shot at the gorgeous Oak Point Nature Preserve in Plano, Texas!
At our last photo shoot, we made a stop at this beautiful mosaic at the Dallas Museum of Art in downtown Dallas.
Created by Miguel Covarrubius in 1954, this sixty-foot long mosaic entitled, “Genesis, the Gift of Life” is a Dallas landmark. Per the Dallas Museum of Art, “Genesis is based on an ancient Mexican myth that four worlds preceded the world we currently live in. According to the myth, four principal deities controlled the four elements—water, earth, fire, and air—and each god destroyed the world once using their element. The gods then worked together to create the fifth, or current world.”
The gorgeous glass tiles made a perfect backdrop for our “Color Craze” themed feature! It’s awe-inspiring to imagine how much work went into placing so many individual glass pieces.
Some beautiful textiles in our accessories buyer’s office!
She has a great inspiration board too.
Our home goods buyer likes to keep track of the places he’s traveled.
Unique product samples tend to make their way into our office decor!
Flowers from our last photo shoot are drying in our jewelry buyer’s office! Beauuutiful!
No office is complete without some LOLcats. This is a proven fact.
Our buyers have long work days when they travel but sometimes they do get a bit of time off to kick it! Here is our clothing buyer, home decor buyer and accessories buyer at the Taj Mahal!
We recently headed up to New York City for a buying trip. We visited showrooms, street vendors, and a great trade show at the Javits Center. We saw so many exciting things and gathered information for some awesome new lines! We can’t wait to get them into our stores.
Happily, we got to see a little bit of the city in between meetings. Love the graffiti in Brooklyn!
We encountered a bit of snow in SoHo.
The NYC ping pong phenomenon is great. Maybe we can add a ping pong table in our office?
We saw some of the big landmarks and cool architecture that the city offers.
Of course we had to fit some eating in there somewhere too. The diet root beer totally makes up for the cupcake, right?!
Two lovely associates workin’ it at our Sevierville, Tennessee store location. They sure know how to rock that Earthbound style! (That’s our new sheer print poncho on the right – only $14.95.)
Share your photos of you sporting your Earthbound fashion on our Facebook page, and you could be featured on our blog!
We have fallen in love with India. Truly.
