Liz and I hung out in West Asheville on Friday – had fika, visited some breweries we hadn’t been to, and then checked out a new pop up shop. I just love the concept of pop up shops which is literally what it sounds like – a shop that just pops up somewhere and is open for a limited time. The East West Pop Up Shop is all based on vintage and hand made local stuff (ceramics, t-shirts, leather books, glasses, woodblock print posters, jewelry…). The shop had their grand opening Friday night and it will only be open for four days in total (December 11th – 14th). You can check it out some more, here. The quote below is from their website!
We collaborate with local crafters, artists, furniture makers, and vintage collectors to bring an ever changing array of items to our unique space. Combine that with the eye of an interior decorator, who has a warehouse full of vintage furniture, and you have a beautifully arranged retail store that you’ll wish was there all year. Alas, the beauty of the pop up shop is its temporary nature. Open for only four days at a time, our shop is an event not to be missed.
