An odd journey

So three and a half years, a long time for a pop-up project.
Queens Parade is still going, albeit with different shops than the ones who started back in 2012.
Each unit has seen maybe two or three, sometimes more projects, and it's been
an interesting, intense journey of learning for me, a crash course in business and social projects.
It's kind of funny running the only vintage shop in Willesden Green. I often feel it's somewhere in between Harvey Keitel's store in the Jarmusch movie Blue in the Face, and an 80s sitcom.
I made it this way because I wanted the shop to be welcoming for people, and I've made
some friends there because of it. These next few weeks should be our last in Willesden, but then I've been saying that so many times it's almost turning into a let's see what happens next.

Yes No Yes No Maybe...

Oh, so after spending the whole summer announcing our closing down, and preparing for it,
turns out we actually got a lease extension. Til the end of October, this time.
We will be open the usual days and hours (monday to saturday 11-7).

Is this the longest, silliest pop-up in the history of London pop-ups?
Can you still consider yourself a pop-up after once you passed 3 years of existence?
Well...we have vintage gear...but mainly we have questions.
So many questions.

Anyway feel free to come by for a chat and a cuppa,
and til next time...

PS: Autumn-Winter stock in store soon.

July Newsletter

It's official...

This is set to be a busy summer for us at A Pop-up Wonderland, and our last summer in Willesden Green, too.

For starters, we are welcoming a new trader to share with us this summer.
David Florence Boutique will be trading alongside us at the shop in the summer. They provide a range of clothing and accessories for huggy men and women, (yeah you read that right) as well as children. They also have a lovely range of wedding jewellery and costume jewellery.

The rest of the shop is still packed full of our usual vintage gear, clothes, jewellery, accessories and treasures. All the Pop-up Wonderland Clothes are on 3 for 2 sale, just mention it at the till!
We will be open for another 7 weeks until closure at the end of August, so make sure you come say hi (or bye) before then!

In the meantime, we are planning two nights, Queens Parade summer party, and our closing party in August (obviously!). But more on that later...
The Queens Parade Summer Party is set to be another classic QP event, with all the shops open and plenty happening inside and outside the shops.
more on this here!
Hope to see you there!
