Tips for Running a Pop-Up Shop
Thank you to Virgin Media Pioneers for this feature on my top tips for running a pop-up shop.
Cakes with Faces first started with a pop-up at MCM London Comic Con back in 2011, which is the same time I started the online shop.
Events have been a part of Cakes with Faces ever since, and I love meeting you all at shows! They’re a huge amount of work and really exhausting, with early mornings and long days (we always have lots of sugar and caffeine to keep us full of energy!).
As an online shop most of the time, I love seeing everything come together, with my colourful display artwork. I’ve learnt a huge amount along the way, and I try to improve it every time. People often ask me what it’s like having a pop-up, so this article for Virgin Pioneers shares some of my tips and advice.
You can also see what it’s like behind the scenes in my vlog below – including what it’s like at comic con after it closes!
