Pop Up thank you

My Pop Up shop has been very successful. Thank you to all those who came to visit and to those who shared it on their Facebook pages.

It was fun to catch up with some of my lovely customers from my Brisbane Arcade days and to meet some blog followers.

The shop will continue until Saturday, even though I don’t really have much left to sell. I will be in the shop from 9.00am until 2.00pm.

Soon I will begin working on things for my next Pop Up which will be at the beginning of February, just before I leave for Italy. The next couple of months will be hot here in Brisbane…a perfect time to sit in my airconditioned workroom and sew.

My friend Sam, who owns the shop, is interested in renting it for other Pop Ups. Next week, my friends Paul Hunt and Kellie Alderman will be there with their summer collection. I hope you will all come along from Tuesday 8th December.

If you are interested in your own Pop Up, contact Sam Argyrou. The shop is ready for you to just walk in and set up your stock. There is not a great deal of walk by custom, but if you have a good social media following, this could be the place for you…239 Boundary Rd, West End.

  1. Your clothes are really stylish, I’m not surprised you are nearly out of stock!

    • It has been an interesting exercise. I am really pleased I finally did it.

  2. It’s a rather stylish space.

    • It is a good place for a PopUp

  3. So happy that it was a great success, Debra. 🙂

    • So am I. I put it together quite quickly. I will have more time for the next one.

  4. I am pleased I came to see it Deb. I am very happy with the tops that I bought. 100% cotton and made in Brisbane, perfect. Just what we need in this climate.

    • Yes, it is too hot to wear much else these hot days.

  5. Glad to hear it was a great success. Well done and happy sewing.

    • I am very pleased, now I get to keep sewing.

  6. Glad everything went so well; love that arcade

    • I spent 20 years of my life in the Brisbane Arcade. It was a fun place to be…most of the time.

  7. Really wonderful Debra! How fantastic that you’ve made and designed your own clothing! I only wish I had that skill! You are a woman of many talents! 😌

    • I have been sewing since I was a child, it runs in the family.

      • Wonderful Debra. My grandmother had taught me how to knit and crochet and sew when I was a child but I never kept it up and wish I did. It is wonderful to be able to create things.

  8. Best wishes with your plans. I am totally hopeless at sewing…..

    • I like to see and it gives me something to do without actually getting a job.

  9. Oh I wish we were closer to pop in. Will you put up pic of what you will be selling?

    • I put photos up at the beginning and will do it again for the next Pop
