How Pop Up Shops Are Changing Retail

Retail needs an overhaul. I’ve been saying this for a while now. Like anything really – it all goes a bit stale until the next craze comes into play.

Aside from having a bricks and mortar shop – it was being online with a website that changed and is still changing retail. The traditional high streets are a mass of charity, phone and coffee shops. Once you know your high street, it is pretty much done and abandoned unless mundane tasks are the order of the day.

Pop up shops however are far more exciting. You can potentially leverage your planning skills into your own event that cements the relationship between physical shop, online presence and your tribe of customers.

We are totally geared up and dedicated to helping achieve these plans and of course our mannequins are very willing to help.

I’d like to compile a guide to creating a pop up shop. If you are a company or individual working in this field and would like to be included, please get in touch.

The Recycled, Ethical, Sustainable, Eco-Mannequin

We were recently asked by a client if we stock Environmentally Friendly or Sustainable Mannequins.

We can easily presume that this is a mannequin produced from natural materials which will naturally biodegrade or able to be recycled once it’s life is over. Or perhaps you have a different outlook.

This is possibly unachievable in the true sense – anything manufactured has some element of not being environmentally friendly.

But we have always believed differently.

Our mannequins, to us, are truly Eco. This is because we look after them, we fix them when broken and when they really are ‘kanackered’ we sell bits to artists through our open yard days to create something amazing to enjoy.

We rarely purchase new mannequins for our own requirements – instead we are constantly looking after our own large collection, funded by our wonderful hire clients.

We hope you agree with us that by taking this approach – not only shall you be presented with a quality recycled product for hire or purchase, but that we tick a box for your business to be sustainable.
