a pop-up shop in pictures

IMG_1.jpgIMG_2.jpgIMG_3.jpgIMG_4.jpgIMG_5.jpgIMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpgIMG_8.jpgIMG_9.jpgIMG_10.jpgTwo weeks ago, I held my first ever Pop-Up Shop in our backyard. The event had a constant flow of customers, of which I am thankful for. My husband was nice enough to help me out during those two days. Every so often I needed to go in the house and warm up, and so he would take over for me. Holly also stayed by my side the entire time. She was a hit among our visitors, and such a comfort to me. Of course, you cannot have a sale without meeting some characters. One in particular lives in our neighbourhood. At one point when we were both inside, we saw an individual who lives down the block come wandering into our yard.

“Geoff, go out there,” I said.

“Em, it’s the creepy guy from down the street!”

“Maybe he’ll buy something.”

“He doesn’t have any money!”

It turns out that he didn’t buy anything, but rather just looked around and shook the change in his pockets. 

“See,” I told Geoff, “he did have money after all.”

The Pop-Up Shop was an eventful two days. While the skies did stay sunny, the weather hovered somewhere around 5°C. It was frigid, to say the least. If I were to do it over again, I would wait until it was warmer. Being it that we lived in a cold province, the best months would therefore be between June and August. Next time, because there will be many more to come, that is what I’ll do.

Have a wonderful Victoria Day, Canadians!

  1. I love going to garage sales so much! (Is a “pop up shop” a Canadian term for a garage sale? If so, I love it!) I would have been so delighted to stumble across your pop up shop. Lovely photos! :)

    • Haha! A Pop-Up Shop is basically when a business (like mine, that is home-based) uses a temporary venue to sell their items. I didn’t want to purchase a business license, so I passed off the event as a Pop-Up/Garage Sale. Next time however, I will get a license and it will solely be a Pop-Up Shop!

  2. I love your pop up shop too. Glad it was a success. Holly is a cutie. Photos out of this world as usual – you should have a magazine or something.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • F*ck. I’m not sure how much more my little bug can take. Looking back at my @Instagram posts, Remy began to get sick exactly one month ago. Since then, she has had the flu, strep throat twice, and now what is essentially scarlet fever. We spent our morning at the hospital and even after a plethora of tests, she came home in good spirits- playing with our dog and her dolls and giving us hug after hug. My heart breaks for her, and for everyone else with a sick child. It’s not easy. I feel broken inside. My little wanderer.
