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.
