Following a tweet here & there & a last minute application form, popcorn-box is  very excited to take part in Pop Up Britain, a new initiative by www.startupbritain.org which provides guidance & support to small independent online businesses in the shape of a REAL SHOP WITH WALLS & A FRONT DISPLAY  in lovely Richmond upon Thames, from the 29th October 2012 - 11th November 2012, occupied by popcorn-box & 4 other small businesses for a rolling 2 week period under the theme of "Little ones", all things baby & toddler

StartUp Britain & startup High street has stepped in to offer a co-working, co-funded space for brands to explore new ways of working - and a whole new audience.
From the flagship shop at Richmond, start up Britain, hopes to take the concept to other High Streets across the country, throwing open empty shops across the land for the benefit of local start-up retailers

This week @ popcorn-box HQ, apart from jumping around with OMG WHAT HAVE I DONE ! we have been planning displays, childcare hell (as its over half term), logistics of manpower as day job also gets in the way, Youngest sons birthday, ideas to bring people in & discounts & coupons for shoppers to return back to the online shop once visited

I am sooooo excited to have an opportunity to showcase popcorn-box in a real life shop with walls, storage & shelves!! We are planning activities & events for people to come into the shop & have an experience as well as tackle their impending Christmas shopping list. We hope that the wonderful friends & residents of Northfields and Ealing, will pop on the 65 bus and spend a Autumn half term day out in Richmond with the children,and visit popcorn-box at the pop up shop, which happens to be opposite Richmond train station.

In the meantime we have been adding lots of new lines to the online shop which will be on wonderful professional displays for all to see & not stored & hidden around a very cramped home in all kinds of secret places !
