Past Pop Up Shops
Colour Box Studio has a history in the pop up shop space. In 2012, Colour Box Studio’s first event was a pop up shop. Since then, we have run a sustainable, ethical fashion pop up shop, a book shop featuring local writers, a summer pop up shop, and we even featured at Pozible’s own pop up shop in 2013. Our pop up shops were also featured in popular publications, Peppermint and Frankie Online.
All of our pop up shops aim to support the local creative economy. We focus on sustainable, handmade art and objects made by local makers, crafters and creatives.
