Last week or so, we were at Boxpark hosting a week long High Spirit Pop Up Shop (5th – 11th January 2015). The pop up store was sponsored by Fiji Water (www.fijiwater.com). It was our first independent pop up store so we were pretty excited about showcasing our product and our brand to a wider audience.
We also had Mathew Vieira’s wonderful artwork for sale. He’s one of our favourite artists. We love the way he fuses realism and elements of geometry into his pieces. On the opening of the shop he surprised us with original painted portraits of our faces! They were fantastic and they definitely got our customers talking! We were also gifted with lovely cupcakes by CherryDCakes.
We were so humbled with the large amount of people from ALL OVER THE WORLD who have been following us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter that came to the shop to say Hi and to also get some more bags! We are always pinching ourselves because we sometimes can’t believe how much love you guys are giving us!
Within the week, we learnt a lot about running a retail space. We also took on board the lessons needed in order to further improve our business.
A lot of people have been requesting for us to do another Pop Up. Maybe we will. We might do one abroad! Whatever we decide to do, we will definitely let you guys know! J
