On Friday 18th November an exciting new addition to Birmingham's New Street opened its doors - The Festive Pop Up Bazaar. Organised by Sabina Gran and Eva Francis, the team who created and run the superb Sutton Vintage and Arts Fair (you can catch next installment of that this Sunday!) the Pop Up Bazaar gives independent businesses a golden opportunity to make the most of the festive season by getting a spot selling smack bang in the middle of the city centre, right in the hustle and bustle of the German market. We had the tempting aroma of hot candied nuts and waffles to contend with all weekend! Not to mention the lure of the bar!
It was a preview weekend with only the downstairs open, we were joined by the lovely ladies from Trunk Junkies Vintage, Laura Loves Boutique, Tallulah Rose and Shop. It's already looking pretty amazing, with the walls decorated by local graffiti artists, and from 24th November (tomorrow!) the upstairs will be open too with lots of vintage clothing, handmade gifts, homewares, jewellery and art. The idea is that businesses, crafters or artists can book in to trade for just a few days or stay there throughout the period, so every time you pop in there will be more new goodies to discover. It will be open until 23rd December so make sure you check it out.
