If you are in NYC this or next week, come see us in person during our NYC pop-up tour!
I took a look through the photo archive to see what kind of cringey early days material I could find about some of our first pop-ups in the mid 2010s. There were a few to pick from, but the below shows a younger me posing at an NYC office pop-up somewhere. Aside from the poor lighting, there are some interesting artifacts to notice on that table.
Keap pop-up circa 2015 — A mysterious orb, tealight discovery set boxes, nameless candle labels, solar lamps, what else?
One of the fun things about our pop-ups is that there are usually some surprises that you can’t get anywhere else, as well as the possibility of asking us questions about our deepest secrets...
We had so much fun speaking with everyone at Field + Supply this past weekend and are incredibly excited to go back to where it all began! Quite literally, because our NYC stops include June Wine Bar, one of the first places to buy our candles, and Lighthouse (on Keap Street!)—the place where the idea for Keap was born.
We’ll be making five stops across Brooklyn and Manhattan and you can see our full tour schedule here. Expect some hard-to-find products and other goodies. :)
We hope to see you there!
Because it’s that time of year, we have more gifting-related updates below. As always, if you have any thoughts you’d like to share, we love to hear them.

If you enjoyed this article, you might enjoy our not-quite-weekly free newsletter where we share our lessons on our journey toward our regenerative vision, product launches, and behind-the-scenes happenings.
We left social media in 2021 because we found its current mechanics didn’t align with our purpose to facilitate connection to the natural world, our loved ones, and our own spirits. Since then, our newsletter has become a vibrant place for healthy conversation around topics ranging from alternative business ownership models to happy hour cocktail recipes.
What our readers say about it:
“It’s very thoughtful and not sales-y like all other marketing newsletters.”
“I like reading how a business is trying to be as progressive as possible in a capitalist system.”
“I normally delete emails from businesses but with the Keap newsletter I was actually interested in reading through! Made me feel that you guys really care about us and the work you do."
