Tis the pop up season !


It’s come around again – we’re certainly in the “season” for pop up shops !

For several weeks now I’ve been saying to visitors and customers (of instant retail   and popUPshopsMelbourne…) that we’re coming to the start of the busy season for pop ups… and why not ? This is the time for gift-giving and re-stocking the summer wardrobe… shoppers are out and about, soaking up our brilliant Melbourne Spring weather – hopefully in the mood to buy or just enjoy some leisurely browsing (well, maybe not so leisurely once we’re into the frenzy of December !)

Here’s a selection of pop ups open this weekend around Melbourne (we know about these ‘cos instant retail has supplied fittings to each event)

Chip Chop! – “print-focused fashion label, statement apparel, accessories and lifestyle products”. Now open at shop 34 Pran Central, 325 Chapel Street Prahran (7 days a week)

Our customer SoulSong Yoga Wear has her collection of “vibrant active wear and tempting lifestyle clothing” in the Market Hall of the Evolve Yoga Festival tomorrow (“an affordable community celebration of all things yogic”). Only on Sunday 23rd November at Abbotsford Convent, St. Heliers Street Abbotsford – 8am ‘til dusk (around 7pm…) Tickets $55 online or $70 at the door.

KISSKILL – “boutique lingerie brand specialising in glamorous, designer lingerie and sleepwear”. Opening today (Saturday 22nd November) in their new location at 473 Chapel Street South Yarra. Okay, so this isn’t really a pop up (they’ll be at this address for quite some time…) – but this business has all the right pop-up philosophies. Visit the store and let them tell you their story !

Life With Bird Warehouse Sale – “ready-to-wear women’s fashion, classics and accessories”. Now at 425 Chapel Street South Yarra – open ‘til Sunday 30th November.

Nobody Denim – “premium designer jeans… past season, archive, samples and seconds”. At 166 Gertrude Street Fitzroy (corner George Street), 10am to 5pm daily through to Sunday 30th November.

And if you are going to “all things yogic” at the Evolve Festival on Sunday… why not drop in to the Abbotsford Convent pop-up shop – right next door to the yoga festival Market Hall ! The Convent pop-up is an “Artist Run Initiative to exclusively showcase the works of the amazing artists…(resident) at the Abbotsford Convent”. Open Thursday to Sunday 11 to 5pm until just before Christmas. (this pop up has no association with instant retail)

    Gratitude to Scott and his team at Instant Retail. Our Soul Song Yoga & Lifestyle Wear Pop Up Shop was all made possible thanks to these guys.
    We had a wonderful day at Evolve Yoga Festival in Melbourne’s beautiful Abbotsford Convent.
    I thoroughly recommend Instant Retail for all your “POP UP SHOP” needs.
    Donna & Annie
