Because anything that works well once works well twice, many items are sold as pairs, so buyers will also find duplicate Mao figurines, 1960’s hand-blown glass goblets and reclaimed popupshop Danish teak chairs.
In conjunction with East End charity Kids Company, popupshop will also sell a range of ceramic plates, painted by children Kids Company supports, with profits returned to the organisation. Kids Company works to keep disadvantaged and abused children off the streets and runs programmes to further their education. popupshop held a two-day workshop with 100 children, encouraging them to paint their Interpretation of
A Dark Winter’s Tale on reclaimed Old English plates of various sizes. Prices start at £15 (
