Brighton shoppers support for local and sustainable traders brings The Pop-Up Club back for Christmas

Successful pop up marketplace The Pop-Up Club had a hugely successful summer and has returned for Christmas with their exciting independent pop up shop experience

Brighton’s shopping scene has welcomed back small and independent traders as The Pop-Up Club returns to Dukes Lane this Christmas.

The Pop-Up Club previously provided a platform for local retailers back in summer, which was hugely welcomed by Brighton shoppers. Now in the countdown to Christmas, the pop up shopping experience is back and set to help shoppers discover and purchase unique gifts from a selection of carefully picked independent traders.

Visitors to the Dukes Lane shop can discover over 30 curated small brands and designers from the local area, including handcrafted and eco-friendly gifts, cards, ceramics, homeware, jewellery, artwork, kids prints and lots more.

This time, Brighton traders available include hand knitted styles from Knitaboo, luxury fragrance brand Isle of Avalon and bright colour pop art from Louisa Kazig. The Brighton shop will also welcome back returning traders such as Ellen + Grace, which sell environmentally friendly cotton hair accessories.

Opening from Saturday 13th November in shopping district Dukes Lane, The Pop-Up Club will sit alongside other independent retailers including bespoke jewellery brand Aquila, holistic therapy retreat Floating Feathers and quirky art galleries The Brighton Box and the Labyrinth Gallery.

The Brighton pop up will welcome shoppers across six weeks from Saturday 13th November until 24th December (Christmas Eve). The doors will be open for shoppers to browse and purchase from 10am until 6pm Monday to Saturday and 11am until 5pm on Sundays.

In 2020, The Pop-Up Club helped small retailers and traders generate £140,000 via its events and stores, and this year has succeeded in generating £200,000 for the small businesses it supports.

Lee Marshall of Isle of Avalon said: “The Pop-Up Club has given us a platform that has allowed us to not only get our products in-front of customers, but to also branch out into seven new different industries. We’re so excited to return to Brighton with The Pop-Up Club for Christmas and be part of an amazing collective of independent.”

Founder Tillie Peel said: “We have always loved the way that Brighton shoppers embraced us and our independent traders earlier this year, and we’re really excited to be back this Christmas. We’re taking up residence in our previous pop up location on Dukes Lane, which has always been a brilliant place for us and is the perfect hidden gem.”

She continued: “With Christmas shopping now firmly on people’s minds, we want to help and encourage shoppers to remember that supporting local businesses can have a huge impact at this time of year.

“There are over five and half million small businesses* registered in the UK and if every person supported a small business with just £10, a substantial figure of £5.5million would be generated for the local economy and British high street.”
