AURORA, NY – April 5, 2017 – MacKenzie-Childs announced a new product partnership with fellow upstate New York brand Beekman 1802. The two brands collaborated on a blooming-floral soap and lotion set in a hand-painted Courtly Check container, which will be available online for $75. Additionally, the two brands will work on multiple co-branded opportunities including live appearances and future product collaborations.

“Wonderful things happen when neighbors get together,” said Rebecca Proctor, Creative Director for MacKenzie-Childs. “We are huge fans of what the Beekman boys are doing. It was such a perfect opportunity for us to combine our hand-painted enamelware with their amazing products.”

“We have long been fans of the whimsical beauty that MacKenzie-Childs brings into the world and the delight that you can see on the faces of their customers,” said Brent Ridge, co-founder of Beekman 1802. “We particularly love that both of our companies started on upstate New York farms—truly neighbors. We’ve used our expertise in producing farm-inspired skincare and fragrances to create an incredible first collaboration.”

MacKenzie-Childs Creative Director Rebecca Proctor will be hosting the Beekman Boys for a book signing and meet-and-greet in their Aurora store April 29th from 10am-4pm. Rebecca will also join Beekman 1802 at the annual Garden Party Festival in Sharon Springs, NY, on Saturday, May 27.
