London Fields Shoppe Pop-Up 2.0 + Thank You!

photoTHANK YOU to all of you for another amazing show! I know that we say this after every event, but really, last weekend was truly special. After moving from the Royal Canadian Legion to the Croatian Cultural Centre to the Maritime Labour Centre (and Templeton Secondary due to the fire), we finally feel at home and it was good to see so many familiar faces and to meet new friends! To those lucky early birds, the line up for swag bags started just after 6am on both days and the last one was snatched up around 7:30am. Yeah, I told you they were * that * good!

LFSpopupFor those of you still needing to finish (or start?) your holiday shopping, we’ll be popping up at Les Amis du Fromage as we patiently wait for our final piece of paperwork from City Hall for our permanent brick and mortar space to be finally opened. We’ll be setting up shop at the “cheese place” once again with a fine selection of our favourite items including Mellifera Bees, Herbivore Botanicals, Olive Soap, Falconware, think & ink studio, Merchant and Mills, Archie’s Press, the leather satchel co, and so much more!

POP-UP in the POP-UP! From Friday, December 19th to Sunday, December 21st, Rogue Florist will be bringing some of her beautiful floral arrangements and wreaths. These will add a festive touch to your home and also make great host / hostess gifts! If you missed out at Got Craft? last weekend, you will want to make sure to pick one up!

London Fields Shoppe offers a smorgasbord of stationery, homewares, prints, vintage, and more. You’ll find tons of treats for both stocking stuffers and as presents under the tree. We’re also the only shop in Vancouver to be carrying the exclusive Strathcona t-shirts hand printed by local designers, Locomotive Clothing and to be stocking danish homeware line, Rice DK! Plus, there’s CHEESE, so it’s win-win.

london fields shoppe :: we’re hiring!

LFS-HiringHey folks! We’re getting * so * close to opening our doors at London Fields Shoppe! To prepare for the busy holiday season, we’re looking to hire a Retail Sales Clerk for our pop-up shop (more to come on that!) at Les Amis Du Fromage (845 East Hastings, Vancouver) from Tuesday, December 16th to Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014 as well as at our permanent brick and mortar space from Friday, December 12th to Sunday, December 14th, 2014.

The ideal candidate we’re looking for is friendly, honest, motivated, able to multi-task and takes initiative. We’re looking for somebody that is able to talk about the merchandise, be comfortable with sales, tidy up displays / restock, interact with customers, and process sales quickly and accurately. We carry a wide range of products, so will need somebody that is a quick learner and be able to familiarize themselves with our stock as well as understand the look and aesthetic of London Fields Shoppe. This is a paid position ($12/hr) with the opportunity of more work in the new year. Ideally, we would like one person to cover all dates, but can be flexible.

If you feel that that you would be a good fit, please email us at hello@londonfieldsshoppe.com with a cover letter, resume, availability, and why you want to work with us. Only short listed applications will be contacted via email for an interview.

Community Thrift & Vintage is a social enterprise (owned by the Portland Hotel Society) devoted to selling hand picked thrift and vintage clothing in a warm and welcoming environment. Their purpose is to inspire positive transformation through fashion by having the best selection of used clothing at the best price and by employing women in transition from detox in a graduated job-training program. All profits collected will also be donated back into the DTES community. Pretty amazing, eh?

Today (Wednesday, June 8th, 2011) is the official soft opening, so head over to 41 West Cordova, Vancouver to check it out. For hours and details, visit their facebook page here.

If you have unwanted clothing that you’d like to donate, please get in touch with them by emailing communitythriftandvintage (at) gmail (dot) com.
