We’ve had the privilege of working with our local friends at both St. Luke’s and the Clyde Iron Works once again, to produce the much anticipated Sip and Shop event and it has been our absolute pleasure.

Several of our own writers and team members have had experiences within St. Luke’s walls (everything from delivering bundles of joy in their state-of-the-art birthing center, to surgery, and urgent care visits), and we are always delighted when our readers share their own St. Luke’s stories with us.

We were thrilled that Clyde Iron Works invited us back and helped us host another event in the most stunning and spacious event space. Their delish food, the attention to detail, the hip spaces… there is no other place in the Northland like the Clyde; they stand out as the place to host events.

Put simply, our events wouldn’t be possible without the sponsorship of St. Lukes and Clyde Iron Works. I can confidently speak for our entire team and over 100 beautiful women in attendance at our Sip and Shop event when I say “THANK YOU!”

Our first ever Sip and Shop event was held on Saturday, October 6th and was a BLAST to say the least! Picture it: over one hundred women, fifteen plus vendors, mimosas, donuts and swag! It was so much fun watching everyone connect and enjoy themselves. We had a great time socializing, seeing the wide variety of goods and services our vendors brought to the event and anticipating the giveaway drawing! Thank you to our dedicated team of volunteers, every mama who came out to support local businesses, and thank you to our local businesses for coming out to support moms. We appreciate all of you!


Building community goes beyond getting to know your neighbors. It’s also about getting to know your locally-owned and -operated businesses. We strive to make sure Duluth Moms Blog events provide opportunities for local businesses to showcase their products to our event attendees. We thank maurices for their sponsorship of the Sip and Shop! Their pop-up boutique was a unique addition to our event! 


We hope that you had a chance to visit each table and spend time with each of these amazing Sip and Shop partners we hand picked for our event. Each business offers something wonderful for Duluth moms and we are pleased to have partnered with each business!

Swag Sponsors

This cup of swag had everybody feeling special! Swag included lip balm from St. Luke’s, a maurices gift card, a notepad and “The Boss” pencil from Hucklebeary, lotions from Miel, an adorable Bow from The Bauble Fairy, and a festive magnet from Hoffbauer Tree Farm.  


We had over 15 AMAZING giveaways  from both local and national companies. Some very lucky attendees went home with awesome gifts!



Anna McParlan from Along an Inland Sea Photography  was back to capture another Duluth Moms Blog event! Sometimes the best part of an event is being able to look back on it later. Her photos capture the spirit of community, the camaraderie, and the beauty of moms coming together to learn and grow with each other.  We are so thankful for our amazing partnership with her! 


We have been honored to partner with Northland Special Events for the past several DMB events and love everything Mariah creates for us. NSE encompasses three amazing businesses under one roof, including Duluth Balloon Company and Fluertation. They provide show-stopping balloons, special signage, floral centerpieces, photo walls, and all the finishing touches to add class and color to an event.  Northlad Special Events provided the donut wall for the Sip and Shop.  Mariah and her team always create a beautiful finished product for us and we are so lucky to work with them! 

This event was sponsored by our valued partners, but all opinions and interpretations are our own.
