Two pop-ups that I’m well excited about:
Miller Harris has opened a Xmas shop on Bruton St. There’s nothing better than the smells of Christmas – fig, cinnamon, orange…
They have lots of lovely pictures of their Christmas shop on their blog. Those candles in red boxes are irresistible.
Plus Brit homeware brand Thornback & Peel has opened a pop-up furniture shop in Liberty. Their illustrations are really pretty – they’re quirky without being too twee. They have some beautiful gifts, such as a robin tea towel or a box of old school hankerchiefs printed with animal illustrations.
Go forth and shop! I’m sure gonna.

Contrary to *all* other people my age, I’m not a fan of festivals. Except, perhaps ATP – All Tomorrow’s Parties – which I would quite like to go to. ATP is a cult festival, each time curated by an artist/band, taking place at venues like Pontin’s. It’s supposedly more intimate, more fan-friendly and less corporate than some other festivals which I won’t mention..
In any case, forget the festival (curated by Mogwai, Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, etc.), from tomorrow until Saturday ATP are hosting a pop-up shop at kooky Shoreditch boutique Maiden.
Open from 11am-7.30pm on Thursday 17th and Friday 18th November, and from 11am-6.30pm on Saturday 19th November. All sales must be made with cash (there is a cash point nearby).
You can get your hands on:
- Tickets for Upcoming ATP shows without booking fee – These will include our Battles, Gang Gang Dance, Magic Band, Superchunk, Panda Bear, Thurston Moore, Mister Heavenly, Wolf People, Explosions In The Sky and Olivia Tremor Control London shows & I’ll Be Your Mirror London 2012.
- CD & Vinyl – Albums & Singles by Sleepy Sun, Fuck Buttons, Deerhoof, Autolux, Magic Band, Alex Tucker & more. We’ll be selling our Spiritualized Pill Box Sets – 12 CD box sets featuring the ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’ album + Loads of extras and our Custom Made 2×7″‘s.
- ATP DVD – The feature length ATP Film on PAL DVD.
- Tote Bags – From the Animal Collective & IBYM UK Curated by Portishead events.
- T-shirts & Hoodies – At least one design for nearly every each festival we’ve run, featuring designs by Michael Motorcycle, Tim Biskup, Tara McPherson, Kii Arens, James King, Pete Fowler, Matt Groening and more + Baby Grows – The last stock of our special ATP baby grows.
- Posters – Various prints ranging from screen print through to Giclee quality. Designers include: Amos, Michael Motorcycle, Kii Arens, Tim Biskup, Matt Groening, Tara McPherson, Kathie Olivas, Will Schaff.
- Previous ATP Programmes – A variety of previous ATP programmes will be sold at a low price, these are all unique and commemorative of each festival. This will be the first time they’ve been available after the events. Designers for this include: James King, Kii Arens, Tim Biskup, Tara McPherson, Will Scheff, Michael Motorcycle, Matt Groening.
- Dolbees – Our limited edition vinyl toys that we released at each festival over a period, the initial toy design was by MAD and further designers were invited to put their own artwork on subsequent ones. These designers include: Kathie Olivas, Michael Motorcycle, Kii Arens, Sket-One, Melvins, Brandt Peters, Pete Fowler, Tara McPherson, Eric White and Tim Biskup.
DEFINITELY WORTH A LOOK-IN.
