The GOODS from THISOPENSPACE

Vancouver, BC | There’s seven new pop-up concepts at our Chinatown store in November. The month starts with a few quick pop-up shops including the launch of two new fashion brands and a weekend café. On the 12th “Portraits of Brief Encounters” is an immersive gallery-game that combines story telling and original art and invites the audience to play along. The holiday season officially kicks off mid-month with Etsy opening a pop-up store and #Portage bringing a kick-ass line-up of local makers in a Pacific Coast Cabin themed store. Our blog has the full details of what’s ahead, including more pop-ups being held around town. Check us out on the new thisopenspace.ca.

NOV 04-06 | #Glamsesh Fashion & Accessories Boutique | Bringing L.A. chic to Vancouver through their online store, #Glamsesh is opening a brick & mortar pop-up for the first time ever. Expect the latest trends in fashion, jewelry, and accessories. Style that won’t break the bank is key here. We were hard pressed to find anything over $100 on their site, with most items well under $50. Check out their online shop for a preview of what to expect.
Hours: 11AM-9PM daily

NOV 08-09 | #BajaBeans Weekend Café & Fundraiser | This is a feel good story. North Vancouver born and raised Tidey family moved to Pescadero, Mexico 5 years ago with a love for coffee and sense of adventure. They build a premium roasting company and a community hub in town. That’s until a hurricane devastated Pescadero. They’re opening a weekend café serving Baja Beans coffee and a Saturday night fundraiser supported by friends Postmark Brewing amongst others. Tickets to the fundraiser are available now on Eventbrite with proceeds going to aid the community in Pescadero affected by the hurricane.
Café Hours: 10AM-3PM
Saturday’s Fundraiser: 7PM-11PM

NOV 10-11 | #COQOandRICH Fashion Show & Collection Launch | New Streewear label comes to Chinatown to launch their AW14 Collection with a fashion show and pop-up shop. The hip-hop inspired streetwise label produces their garments locally and has a muted colour palette; the brand stands out without being loud. The quick two-day affair is early in the week but thankfully Tuesday is a stat so you can enjoy yourself with a drink some guilt free fashion.
Hours: Monday 5PM-11PM, Tuesday 12PM-4PM

NOV 12 | Portraits of Brief Encounters: Immersive Gallery-Game | Let’s play a game. Local writer Cole Nowicki and event producer Yashar Nijati have teamed up with 15 artists curated by Elliat Albrecht to bring a unique immersive gallery-game experience. You get a storybook and match tales of run-ins, pass-by’s, overhears, and introspections to 15 original pieces of art. The prize? Correct answers get you discount on the displayed artwork, and entries into a grand prize draw – a book of stories and prints signed by all artists. It’s $5 to play and this will be the art show of the season. There’s also rumour of a few surprises.
Hours: 6PM-11PM

NOV 13-19 | #UnwrapEtsy | The online marketplace is starting a global holiday pop-up tour and we couldn’t be more excited to have them kick things off in Vancouver. If you hadn’t heard, Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world connect to buy and sell unique goods. They’ve invited a curated selection of outstanding Vancouver vendors for #UnwrapEtsy, a concept for the holiday season that encourages us to find the unexpected on Etsy.com from local artisans and makers. Come meet those in your backyard and impress everyone on your list this season.
Hours: Thursday 6PM-9PM (Media Preview), Daily 11AM-7PM (6PM on Wednesday)

NOV 20-23 | #SustainableTextiles | Students from SFU’s Product Design & Development have worked closely with sustainability leaders in Vancouver’s textile industry to understand what it means to participate in the circular economy. Drawing on the rich experiences of these leaders and working to close the identified gaps, the students propose new products and services and bring them into a pop-up store to share with the public.

NOV 24-30 | #Portage | Portage is a week-long independent pop-up shop. Showcasing the work of a selection of Vancouver’s best local makers, in a Pacific Coast Cabin atmosphere. The concept is from two well-known local makers AW by Andrea Wong, and MH by Melanie Hull. They’re hosting an opening party on Nov.25 with pre-holiday festive drinks. Bonus: There’s two long-table dinner series on Friday and Saturday night. Tickets go on sale soon. Check our site for details and full list of participating Vendors.
Hours: Daily 11AM-7PM (Opening party on Tuesday to 10PM), Sunday to 6PM

About thisopenspace

TOSc-JR-12(touched-up)

thisopenspace is a full-service pop-up production agency. Their flagship storefront in Chinatown is an idea playground and a pop-up ready space. It’s where they have hosted over 70 pop-up concepts since 2012. But there is so much more…

POP-UP READY SPACES
Empty space sucks and space for short-term use is rare. We help clients find flexible space and open underutilized space for temporary use. We’ve done this around Vancouver neighbourhoods including Mount Pleasant, Gastown, South Granville, and Fraserhood. Do you have or need space for temporary use? Contact us.

PROMOTION AND PRESS RELATIONS
It ain’t a party if no one shows up. We provide promotion and press relations exclusively to short term pop-up shops, exhibitions, and events. Whether it’s happening at one of our spaces or not, we help clients connect with their audience. Here’s the proof.

AN ENGAGED AUDIENCE
A pop-up is a limited time offer and we make sure that clients get noticed by an engaged audience that we’ve built over the last two years. This includes over 1000+ subscribers to our monthlycoolkids newsletter, 3000+ Instagram, 1900+Facebook, and 1500+ Twitter followers. We leverage our audience and get clients noticed.

EVENT PRODUCTION
Over the past two years, we’ve seen the best and the less than stellar. We know the elements that make a pop-up event successful and those to avoid. Our team has a track record of producing successful retail, food, and entertainment events. We design unique and memorable experiences.

ACCOLADES
“The incredibly successful rotating pop-up shop that offers people the chance to try out a storefront” – Vancouver Sun, August 2014
