When you think of power couples who do you think of? Bill and Melinda Gates? William and Kate? Jay-Z and Beyonce? Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy? We digress. We at Market Mafia can’t help but think of Gordon and Jamie Hall, founders of Gray Space.
They’re a self-described “couple that enjoys living, shopping, cocktailing and celebrating all things local”. Gordon and Jamie clicked with Market Mafia and our mission right away; it’s been nothing short of awesome to watch them quickly build their brand into a local empire that encompasses their shared love for our community. They started Gray Space in 2016 and have been vending around Tampa Bay ever since with their popular men’s “athleisure” clothing (in addition to their badass hats and other must-have commodities). If you haven’t shopped them yet, you’re missing out, plain and simple. Their unique stock of comfy yet fashionable menswear is a much needed breath of fresh air to our market scene, which is predominately geared towards women.
Popping up all over the Sunshine City, you can typically visit them at Blue Goose’s Moonlight Market, USF St. Pete Harbor Market and St. Pete Indie Market. They can appreciate the unique “flair” of each market, but their current flavor is St. Pete Indie; per Gray Space “the vendors rock, the atmosphere is super chill,” and the market’s location in the heart of town is what first had them “swooning for the ‘burg”. They enjoy interacting with customers at these happenings and vending with neighbors “truly embracing the ‘community not competition’ mantra”. We are so excited for them to announce that beginning NEXT WEEK you’ll be able to find them on the regular at their NEW storefront in The Burg!
Their personal motto is “live everyday like it’s Friday”; “wake up, be productive, then get wild and celebrate life”. Isn’t that the best?! Who can’t use a little more of that Friday feeling in their lives?! That’s a motto we can get on board with, and we can’t wait to see what is up next for these motivated mates in the future.
Starting May 3rd shoppers, supporters and groupies like ourselves can swing by their brand spanking new brick and mortar location. Don’t forget you can visit them on the web 24/7/365. Join them in living what they call the ‘post 9-5’ lifestyle!
Tweet them (no mean tweets please, although they make us snicker)!
