Attention all husbands, brothers, sons, boyfriends, fathers, and any other male shoppers: We really couldn’t be making this any easier for you. In the last week and a half, two pitch-perfect pop-up shops have appeared on the Charlotte retail scene. What’s a pop-up shop? It’s a store with in a store – it’s a pairing of two complementary brands or products in one location so that while you are buying something from one vendor, you can easily and effortlessly peruse the offerings of the other without even having to move your car. In other words: pop-up shops are the greatest thing that has ever happened to the male shopper. Now your holiday shopping can be over twice as fast, and you don’t even have to wonder if what you are buying is good enough for your girl because I am giving these pop-ups the Shop Talk Stamp of Approval right here and now:
Organica Deluxe Pop Up at Poole Shop: Now Through December 24
Organica Deluxe is a fabulous eco-friendly, locally-owned company who normally only sells their wares online (at www.organicadeluxe.com). But for a few brief but beautiful weeks, their best-sellers will be available for purchase inside the stylish interior of the Poole Shop at Morrison. You can even order Organica gifts online and arrange to pick them up at Poole Shop and skip delivery and shipping charges (I know, right? Amazing.) Need a few hints as to what you should buy? We recommend the ginger cookies, the salted dark chocolate caramels, and Danya Decker candles. Oh and don’t forget to splurge on denim, a dress, a fab bag, or killer accessory from Poole Shop while you’re picking up your order.
