Nora and Anthony Bryant are used to being on the move. Nora, an adjunct University of Richmond professor and Anthony, an acclaimed DJ with a penchant for English Premier League Football are adventurous and thoughtful entrepreneurs. And with two little ones, they have translated their love for kids and all things style into one of the Commonwealth’s most well-curated kids’ shops: Little Nomad.
Little Nomad has a storied history, least of all the car that crashed through their Broad Street storefront in May of this year. While no one was hurt, this was a chance to pause and figure out how to proceed with the store that has become a mainstay of kids fashion accouterments.
Always on the move, the Bryants regrouped and have now launched a series of pop-ups in Richmond and abroad. This weekend they are launching their brand in another new location, this time inside the historic Selden Market in Downtown Norfolk for the Fourth Friday Bazaar.
Selden Market has been making huge waves in the Hampton Roads community, launching retail superstars into the atmosphere and helping fashion startups fine-tune their business and marketing plans. With the help of some of the most talented folks in the region advising and mentoring on their behalf, Selden Market has resident tenants and hosts popups weekly, with tons of special events in the mix. Little Nomad is a Richmond staple that Selden Market director, Careyann Weinberg, knew Hampton Roads needed to check out.
“I’m excited to share a Richmond favorite with Norfolk, right here in Downtown.” said Weinberg. “Little Nomad has a cool selection of products, even if you don’t have kids, you’ll probably start thinking about what you can buy for your friends and family.”
When asked what Norfolk could expect from a Little Nomad pop-up Anthony Bryant told RVA Mag, “People can expect a fun mix of goods that one doesn’t often find in a kid’s shop.” According to Anthony, they will be bringing their own independent clothing brands, books, toys, educational materials, “Oh, and Vans.”
To round out the weekend’s events, producer and DJ, Gabe Niles, will perform at Selden Market’s Fourth Friday Bazaar from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Little Nomad’s pop-up will run from Friday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
