If you were around this past weekend, you may have noticed our instagram revealing our newest venture, bringing our online world into the real world! We're super excited about this next and what seems like a natural progression of our Poppytalk world. Our new shop and workshop space, called Poppytalk will open it's doors early May where we will continue to support the handmade community with a curated selection of local and internationally-made goods from some of our favorite makers we have come to know these past 9 years online. We also will be carrying a bit of vintage (to fulfill that bit of retro addiction) along with the odd guitar or two!
Along with the retail component, we will also be hosting an ever-changing selection of workshops from DIY + crafting workshops (think weaving, terrariums, embroidery etc.) to small business classes (from photoshop courses to blogging and social networking sessions). With Earl's experience as a new media instructor at BCIT (e.g. photoshop, illustrator, html, apps), along with our experience running a blog and online business for the past 9 years, we plan to share our thoughts, tips and strategies for those interested, along with bringing in master makers to teach us how to make some amazing things!
Stay tuned for our brick and mortar opening date and online store site where we will be announcing workshops, (along with an online shop)!Our new address is 109 East Broadway (at Main), Vancouver, B.C.
Can't wait to meet you all!
Jan and Earl
