October saw my very first pop up shop, at the Minories Gallery at the end of Colchester High Street.

It was an unusually sunshiney day for October, filled with lovely people both stallholding and visiting.

Pop up shops and market stalls are a great way for my lovely customers to be able to see my stock, try samples (the brushes are so soft!) and also to meet me and ask any questions they have about mermaid photoshoots or mermaid hen dos.

I always take an album with me so people can get a feel for what it would be like to experience being a mermaid, and I try to have scale makeup on, if not my full tail as it’s not very practical while running a shop!

If you’ve been lusting after some mermaid accessories, I often have extra stock that has arrived during the week and I haven’t yet listed on the website – so it’s always worth a visit. Plus there are other lovely traders selling beautiful things too.

Next pop up shop dates: 

  • 4 November 2017 at the Minories, Colchester
  • 2 & 3 December 2017 at a secret location, also in Colchester

Here are a couple of photos of my stall, courtesy of my fab friend Anna who came to help me set up ūüôā

I had an unexpected extra table, so was able to put out my Fin Fun stock too, which was lovely:
