BLK MKT in Aspen

For we locals, it’s not cheap shopping in Aspen, but when we do decide to spend our hard-earned money we make sure to support our locally owned boutique stores. Another new concept that we keep on the look out for are the pop-up stores that appear, and disappear, usually leaving us want for more.
When contributing writer, Rob Hollis, discovered that Sammy Steen and Mike Delaney of BLK MKT and “This is Where I ROAM” are selling their very cool clothes and shoes out of Boogies through Labor Day, he went in to interview Sammy and find out more about their mobile shop.
The gifting of a sewing machine to Mike by his mom over Christmas back in 2012 allowed him to become an independent designer and launch his travel-based brand, ROAM, with Mike. It began with hand-stitching backpacks and has grown into a full production where they source their materials in the U.S. such as; recycled tires and inner tubes, and transport the materials  to Bali to produce the goods.

What is BLK MKT?

BLK MKT first appeared in Aspen at the Crystal Palace building where Testosterone now lives, the shop looked like a cave filled with gems made of wood, brass and leather. A year later, the guys, , are back in town, with a load of goods unloaded from their ’86 diesel box truck into Boogie’s for Labor day weekend. A pop – up shop to say the least, Black Market, with their line of clothing called ROAM, has turned the Boogies lobby into a modern day museum of high-quality, hand-crafted clothing with a conscience. Check them out through Monday at Boogie’s 534 E. Cooper Ave.
