Brighton Shoppers Support For Local & Sustainable Traders Brings The Pop-Up Club Back For Christmas

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 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.

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 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.

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."
