Dear Hoopla family & friends,
We have had quite the adventure with The Hoopla
Shop in the past 3 years. We are proud to say that we opened the Northeast’s first (hula) hoop shop.
With the opening of The Hoopla Shop, Celebrate Shelton was born and the creation of our Downtown Handmade Market. It’s where we met over 250 handmade artisans over the course of 3 years, co-hosted over 45 markets, and built a shop filled with love, a sense of community, and a whole lotta hoops.
Our small, but mighty team has evolved, but this is where Alexandra Capaldo and Lauren Dev began. Also, Marisa Caron and Sarah Murphy have been by my side since the day we opened and continue to take this journey with me every step of the way.
After our busiest summer of programming, we have decided to close our little hoop shop to start focusing on our next adventure. We are confident in our choice and have no doubt this was the best decision we could have made as a team!
To everyone who has supported us along the way, who attended markets, bought one or several hoops, thank you so much and keep it coming!
We are formulating the best ways to get your Christmas hoops to you and we will be announcing the holiday markets you can find us at this season later today!
Again, thank you. We will be celebrating our 7th year in business this April and we get the warm fuzzies every single day because we love what we do and are so lucky to spread the Hoopla Love. ❤️
Nicole & The Hoopla Gals
Hope you have your costumes ready, your LED batteries charged, and your plans set in class because it is almost Halloween! What a fun time of year to dress up, get spooky and enjoy yourself. Not to mention it has been such perfect weather to hoop in, not too hot, not too cold.
Maybe you are running behind on a costume though, and that truly can be scary! Well don’t worry, here are some hoop related costumes to keep you festive and in the spin!
A classic is a circus performer, most hoopers have this outfit in their closet! 🎪🤹🏻♀️
A lion tamer, with a hoop as a prop for your lion to jump through. Get yourself a fancy tailed jacket, a stuffed tiger and your hoop, and you are good to go! 🦁⭕️
Another classic is Sonic the Hedgehog. He is always collecting rings and a small yellow hoop is the perfect way to include your prop with your outfit! 🏅💙💛
Maybe nautical costumes are more your style, a dolphin trainer is another easy one to pull off, with just a wetsuit and a stuffed dolphin and you are all set to hit the trick or treats!🐬
We here at BringtheHoopla wish you a very Happy Halloween! Be safe and have fun!
We are so excited to be back in the swing of things! We have fitness classes running in both Fairfield and Shelton! And our Happy Hooping classes are popping up all over Connecticut!
It has been such a great year, and the best summer Hoopla has ever seen. As we enter into colder months we can’t help but be grateful for the fantastic year we had. We want to thank everyone that booked us this summer and are looking forward to seeing you all again next year!
But don’t forget, just cause it’s a little chilly doesn’t mean we are flying south for the winter! You can still book us for parties, community events, corporate events and anything else you think could use some our signature Hoopla Fun.
Here’s to a Happy Fall Season and for new adventures on the horizon! As always, we sending our love!
It is that lovely time of year! It’s Back-To-School Time!

As we enter into August, we reflect on our amazing summer! Although it’s not over yet it seems like we have accomplished so much in such a small time.
From Mayfest to Soupstock, beach clubs and summer camps we have been all over the map. We are so blessed to spend every day doing what we do, especially this year and in busiest summer ever!
This weekend it keeps rolling as we do our interactive programming at Downtown Sounds Summer Concert Series this Friday August 4, at Veterans Memorial Park in Shelton and as well as vend SoNo Arts Festival.
Our own Hoopla Summer Camp is also on the way for this month. Running the 14th to the 18th of this month we are very excited for a full week of Hoopla.
We love you all, thank you for continually making our dreams livable!
It’s official, it’s summer! We are so excited to get back in the spin and prepare for all the fun our summer has the offer!
We had an amazing time at Soupstock and Mayfest and have so much more on the horizon!
This weekend for example we are at Two Roads Brewery for their Road Jam, Black Rock Farmers Market, and Cromwell Farmers Market as well!
Our team is preparing for the summer in every way we know how; fine tuning curriculum, making hoops, organizing marketing, and.. making a baby? Well just Nicole is doing the last one, but as a team we are looking forward to meeting the newest honorary Hoopla gal.
See you this weekend, we hope! Keep an eye open for us this summer!
It’s a very special day in the Hoopla Universe! Today we Celebrate the our lady behind the tape! Happiest and the most joyous of Birthdays to out hoop taper Lauren Dev!
Lauren is an important part of the team and creates all our beautiful designed hoops! Without her the Hoopla would just be Hoop-blah!
Happy Birthday Lauren!
We hope your enjoy your Birthday and that is extra wonderful!
Now that April has hit, Lauren and the rest of our team is in go mode. The Hoopla Shop will be having 20% off sale through the month for Easter and warm weather preparation. Make sure to stop in and get yourself a new hoop baby before the sale ends!
