A Pop-Up Shop Sneaky Peek...



I've been intrigued by pop-up shops ever since they became the fashion a couple of years ago. The name - Pop-Up Shop - is so cute, don't you find? And the concept is so accommodating - particularly for small, independent retailers who don't have the budget to launch into the boutique market in a big and long-term way. Imagine popping up your shop for a few days - testing the waters and then popping-down your shop without having to spend tens of thousands of dollars in overheads.
Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scene of a pop-up shop? What it takes to get it up and running. And how much work goes into just a few days of popping-up? Well, I have. And so, I asked the lovely gang over at Paper Wings - who are opening a pop-up shop sale in James Street, Brisbane from today - 24th until Sunday the 27th June to give a behind the scenes sneaky peek at what goes on to make it all happen. And, here's what they sent us! Looks like a lot of work!!! But also a lot of fun... Love you Paper Wings. And thanks for the insight into the wonderful world of the Pop-Up...
