What’s popping this weekend in Melbourne ?
There’s a whole lot of fun (and shopping) popping up around Melbourne – our 1st weekend of Summer ! Here’s just a few…
The Melbourne Start-Ups Pop-Up Party launches this afternoon at the NAB Village, 700 Bourke Street Docklands. Only from 4pm until 7pm today (Friday – be quick). Designer jewellery and eclectic accessories !
Tomorrow the Menske Summer Selection opens to the public – at All Press Studio, 84 Rupert Street Collingwood. Featuring a “beautifully curated edit of men’s luxury items” – Article. by Courtney Holm is hosting their 3rd event in the awesome upstairs All Press gallery space. On Saturday 6th December 11am ‘til 8pm and Sunday 7th December 11am til 6pm.
Also opening tomorrow (for 1 day only) is the Romance Was Born Mega Xmas Sale – Spring / Summer collections, samples and seconds at 123 Smith Street Fitzroy (which was the Black Market pop up bar until recently…). Romance Was Born is there from 10 til 5pm on Saturday.
Still going strong is the Sorry Thanks I Love You pop up store at the St James Retail Centre, corner of Bourke and William Streets in the CBD – with an “in-store florist, a special focus on gourmet food, a new range of boutique wine… and the re-launch of a world famous artist”. These guys are an on-line business – but regularly open retail stores around the busy gift times (Father’s Day, Christmas, Mothers Day…). They currently have two pop ups open (Melbourne, and another at 1 Martin Place Sydney)… both due to close on Christmas Eve (phew !). Until then, Sorry Thanks I Love You will be open everyday… 8am to 7pm weekdays and 10am to 5pm weekends.
And over this weekend is the annual (massive) Big Design Market. This event takes over the whole of the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton. Opens today (Friday) from 10am to 9pm, Saturday 10am to 7pm and Sunday 10am to 5pm. This market is really popular (expect to wait in a queue !) – but once you’re inside there’s thousands of interesting and unique items to browse… designer fashion and homewares, lifestyle and children’s products, books and more…
