Short-term commercial rental marketplace,Poppir recently announced that it will be hosting a pop-up bazaar in Washington DC’s Shaw Neighborhood. The bazaar will be a two-day event taking place on December 17th and 18th from 10:00am to 6:00pm at the old Wonder Bread Factory (641 S Street NW) in Washington, DC. The timming of the event is perfect for holiday shopping and will feature a wide variety of vendors including home goods, clothing designers and a live concert by local musician Constance Alex George, whose fashion line will also be featured.
The concept of the bazaar is to encourage shoppers to skip online shopping in favor of the “real thing”, because it serves as a unique opportunity to shop local vendors live and in-person. Bringing back the aspect of human interaction while shopping, the pop-up holiday bazaar will be a great place to mix-and-mingle with small business owners like Debbie Jagel, owner of the ultra-hip online clothing and accessory boutique Ootra. The bazaar will offer a complete shopping experience and will feature an awesome lineup of food and drink options like Philz Coffee besides the shopping and entertainment.
The Shop N Shaw: Holiday Bazaar is expected to bring together some incredible makers, artists and creatives from the DC area.
The unique charm of pop-up shops has benefits for both the buyers and the businesses. A Pop-up shop is a temporary retail store that allows businesses to take their products directly to the hands of their customers by taking the business beyond the realms of online interactions without the limitations and commitment of having a brick and mortar store.
Pop-up shops are temporary in nature, sticking around for as little as a few days of a few weeks and can feature just about any product or service, from an Etsy dream come to life to a holiday-themed event. There are even pop-up restaurants, exercise classes, and mini mental health conferences!
For online business and store owners, a pop-up store offers many benefits such as minimal commitment and maximum human interaction. They are the perfect solution for commitmentphobe store owners, who remain online to skip the hassle of a long-term lease.A pop-up store has the advantage over even a creative, highly-visual website filled with detailed descriptions because it allows people to touch and feel, smell, hear, taste, try on, or sample a product.
