We got a message in the beginning of November asking us to do a popup shop in Hafnarfjörður but that is a town close to Reykjavík where me, my sister and her husband were raised.
It was not exactly planned to open up the third shop so close to Christmas, even though it is short term, because this year will be the first year we are running two stores as well as the web store. The third walk in store was not in the plans but we just couldn't say no, so off we went to plan everything, paint and decorate and voilà! -a new store has been born!
The idea is to have the store open according to the Christmas village in Hafnarfjörður, but they have been praised for great Christmas spirit in past years. They actually set up a small "village" of houses where there are all sorts of goods, crafts and design sold among great entertainment on the stage.
This year they are adding horseback riding, decorated bus that will be driving around the town and bunch of pop up stuff like ours.
The street will be full of life every weekend in the advent and if you have any change to we encourage to come and visit!
We are opening our store tonight at 17:00 and will be open until the 23rd of December every weekend (and perhaps a bit more). Tonight we are celebrating the first Christmas village day with some mulled wine and ginger snaps!
The location we got needed a bit of touch so way removed all the furniture and remodelled a bit :)
We found couple of second hand furniture pieces that we painted and put in the space!
A little energy boosting in-between decorating sessions!
It had begun to take shape.
So Christmas-y to have a little fireplace don't you think?
Create your own happiness!
