Event – Amnesty Shop Launch at Boxpark

December 5, 2011 § Leave a comment

Last Thursday evening,  Shoreditch played host to the launch of the first ever Amnesty International shopping emporium at the Boxpark shipping-container-department-store on Bethnal Green Road – located next to Shoreditch High Street station.

Amnesty’s new concept story stock’s ethically sourced gifts, clothing and designer homewares. All profits from the store will go directly to Amnesty Internationals Human Rights work, and best of all the shop is full of fantastic looking selection of unqiue products and the store was designed by us… as you may already know. See blog posts below for more info on the shop build.

The Amnesty Boxpark shop will be working in collaboration with local designers, artists and London College of Fashion who will be providing limited edition ranges – It’s great to see organisations getting involved with local talent, that is the future! The store will also be hosting a range of events and workshops which you can keep up to date with at  Amnesty Boxpark | Facebook
During the launch evening the talented British contemporary painter Stuart Semple was hosting a live-letter-art writing event in aid of the Amnesty ‘Write for Rights’ campaign. This campaign will have thousands of people all over Britain writing hand written letters on behalf of 10 Amnesty cases. One such case is for Woman’s Rights in Zimbabwe which you can find out more about at Women of Zimbabwe Arise – Zimbabwe.
The Boxpark Amnesty International shop can be found on the upper level and is worth checking out and remember not only do they stock a unique range of products, but the profits raised goes towards helping a lot of worthy causes. We are very proud to be a part of this store.

Pop Up Shop – London – Ebay

December 5, 2011 § Leave a comment

Location: Dean Street, Soho, London UK

Dates: 1st December 2011 – 5th December 2011

Ebay’s Christmas boutique will be open for just five days and will close on Monday the 5th of December. The first week in December has traditionally been the busiest shopping week in the lead up to Christmas and the opening is designed to coincide with this.

The store has the website’s top 200 items available in the shop. Customers can use the Ebay App on their mobile phones to scan a barcode on an item’s price tag and have them delivered to their homes within three days.

Staff in the store said that this way of shopping ‘no queues, no bags, no stress’. We thought this was a rather cleaver concept. Take a look at this video to see behind the scenes how this store concept works…
