Pop Up Shopping!

Friday, November 26th, 2010

Good Morning Darlings!

Now that Thanksgiving is over (full report next week..), thoughts turn to shopping for Christmas. Wouldn’t it be great if you could get all your shopping done in one spot and support local artists and craftsmen? Well, now you can. Next week, my great friends Randall and Patrick from the AFFPS will be participating in the Midtown Pop Up Shops Dec. 2-5, 2010. Their shop will be at 805 Peachtree Street. Take a look at the details.

Midtown “Pop Up Shops”
Indoor Artist Market
Dec. 2 – 5, 2010

The Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces and the Decatur Gallery have teamed up with the Midtown Alliance, Atlanta History Center, SCAD and others to host Atlanta’s first “pop up” shopping experience on Dec. 2 – 5, 2010.

30 local artists will “set up shop” at 805 Peachtree Street for a four day artist market and holiday shopping experience. The Artist Market is part of the first “Pop Up” shopping experience in Atlanta. Artists will occupy space in the 805 Peachtree building with original works for sale including paintings, pottery, photography, jewelry, woodworking and fiber art. The “Pop Up Shops” will include six blocks along the Midtown Mile of Peachtree Street from 10th to 6th Streets.

“Artists have a lot to offer for the holidays. We know that what we have are non-essentials, but finding a gift that’s directly from an artist has greater meaning,” says Patrick Dennis, owner of the Decatur Gallery and president of the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces.

30 local artists and artisans will bring unique wares to 805 Peachtree for a four day artist market. Visitors will be treated to demonstrations by artists, live acoustic music and a complimentary beverage. Painters, potters, fiber artists, woodworkers, jewelers, even candle makers will show their holiday finest during the event.

Dec. 2 – 5, 2010
Thurs. – Sat.
10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
805 Peachtree Street

Music and complimentary beverages will be offered each evening from 6-8 p.m. Artist demonstrations daily.

Start a new holiday shopping tradition with ART.

Doesn’t that sound much better than the mall? Of course it does. See you there.
