ODD BITS: 1950s fashion pop-up shops bloom in Australia

A retro, pin up and 1950s fashion Pop Up Shop will return by popular demand
to Newcastle, Australia (exact location TBA) 
Thursday Feb 8th - Saturday Feb 10th.

Not bad for $2.98/pair
(1952 price)

On offer will be dresses, skirts, blouses, parasols, hand bags, jewelry,

shoes and more. A new textiles line includes images of cupcakes, 
cherries, polka dots and florals.
 The shop will carry sizes 8 to 28(UK), and -- hurray -- 
"we embrace curves!"

Pop-up shops are all the rage in Australia, with products ranging from
Indian textiles to hamburgers to wedding photographers to perfumed soaps. 
They are very sensible, offering companies a chance to test-market their 
wares without risking a fortune in overhead.

“Pop-ups are great for everyone,” says Ben Tremellen, Colliers International 
director of retail leasing Victoria. “It’s good for retail in terms of activating 
empty spaces, so there are no holes or unattended spaces in streets – 
there’s an average 20 per cent pop-ups on high streets now in both 
Sydney and Melbourne – and it’s good for landlords 
who can get revenue while they’re negotiating for a long-term tenant."
