I’ve become fascinated with the idea of pop-up shops. I like the idea of occupying a space and making it awesomely yours without worrying about permanently holding down fort. Plus, it adds the element of surprise and a bit of the feeling of, “Oh my gosh, I have to go!” I’m not sure if I actually want to do all of the work to do my own pop-up shop, I more just want to plan the grand opening party.
I sadly have never been to one but there have been several that have caught my eye – Kate Spade’s London pop-up shop, Etsy pop-up shop (organized by Abby), pop-up general store, and I’m looking forward to the return of Yes Please More in Denver. One of the lovliest ones I’ve come across is The New General Store organized by Tricia Foley. A seasonal outdoor shop! In the Hamptons! With white tents and brown papered packages! So perfectly charming.
