It’s just two weeks tomorrow people! Maman Goes Pop! is coming back with a bang at what is arguably the busiest and most exciting pop up week of the year. With half term out the way we will be all clear to start thinking about Christmas and today I’m very happy to tell you about the amazing array of retailers you will find selling their independent wares at Maman Goes Pop! this October/November.
If you’ve yet to book your tickets do head over to the full event programme to see what’s on offer (warning – pop up christmas photo studio has very limited availability….) but in a nutshell the event is 10am – 4m Monday the 29th October through to Saturday the 3rd November with the added bonus this time of LATE NIGHT SHOPPING on Thursday the 3rd November from 6pm – 9pm!
So first up I’m always very happy to welcome back the lovely Beth from The Lion Sparkles. She didn’t join us at the last pop up as she was busy having a baby but you can expect a delightful array of sparkling accessories for boys, girls and their Mums – all the glitter, all the shine – one of my favourite stops for fun stocking stuffers for all the family.
Next we have a new addition to the pop up to welcome. The Little Writing Company will be bringing their range of educational writing notepads, booklets and stationery – perfect to help children fall in love with writing and who doesn’t love stationery!
I’m doing my very own CheltenhamMaman stand this pop up – you can expect an array of amazing books for mums and children as well as a good supply of Spacemasks to either treat yourself or give as christmas gifts.
As always we will have a stand from Cheltenham favourite Nom Nom Kids – it wouldn’t be pop without MumBoss Suzanne’s amazing range of reusable pouches and snack bags.
A very exciting new addition to the lineup is the stunning, ethical and local brand that is Lovesay and Mo. With organic cotton jumpsuits for babies and toddlers as well as amazing reusable cotton rounds – perfect for an alternative to baby wipes – this snuggly brand will offer lots of gifts for new babies in your lives.
But what about for the grown ups amongst us! Worry not ladies – you’re well covered as we welcome back the wonderful Bodega fashion and Harriet Sanders handbags and for the first time welcome Jackeroo fashion boutique!
Also offering some amazing slogan t-shirts for all the family as well as an amazing range of language themed toys and books, Babel Babies will be back with a stand. This was super popular last pop up so make sure you come in early to ensure you get the pick of the crop!
Offering more children’s fashion look out for a rail with hand made cotton/jersey favourites from MumBoss Jo of Daphne and Margot and of course we’ll have Cotswold Baby Co there with their awesome range of fun leggings and children’s clothes.
On the creative front I’m very pleased to welcome two local artists – new to the pop up is Ashley Wilks Art – a range of animal images and also on the nature theme we welcome back regular Pop! attendee Anna of Thistle Moon Illustrations who will be selling her nature inspired range of accessories, prints and cards.
Cotswolds Creative Designs will also be at the pop up with their range of fabric covered pin boards and some amazing hand made advent calendars!
On the homeware and gifts side of things we welcome back Catherine Colebrook. Cath always does lots of amazing cards and really quirky christmas presents to put a smile on the most serious shopper’s face.
When it comes to skincare we’ve got you covered too! MumBoss Katie of Neal’s Yard Remedies will be back with a selection of sweet smelling products and able to take orders from the whole range.
Finally we welcome back ACT Candles – Sally’s range of amazing candles in delicious scent all come with your choice of original print and other optional accessories. All packaged into a gorgeous gift set with a donation from each purchase being made the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (read Sally’s story here.)
And finally I’m proud to say we will be a stocking of Recipes to Remember – the charity cookbook produced locally in aid of Maggie’s Cancer Charity and from the evening of Thursday the 1st November you’ll be able to buy your copy of The Window Magazine!
So that’s it – really can’t wait to welcome this crew and certain there will be something for everyone. As you know there’s also lots of space to come and enjoy a coffee with friends and a brilliant play area for little ones. Here’s the link to book ticketed events again in case I’ve tempted your fancy!
See you all at POP!
