A pop up living room, in a POD, in a park

Written by Team OBS on November 21, 17

A few weeks ago, we announced we were opening our very first pop up shop. But, what we didn't mention is instead of setting up a few tables, some product, and a check out area, we decided to build a pop up living room.

When Tampa Downtown Partnership invited us to open a pop up shop at this year's Winter Village, we knew we wanted to do something different.

 

Why a living room?

Our original idea was to build a store front.. cause... that's what pop up shops do, right? The cool part about opening a pop up shop at Winter Village is having an entire 7x7 foot POD to work with. So, we teamed up with Danielle Izso (who helped with space planning), went to our local POD store, and started to brain storm.

 

Of course the conversation started with the typical questions we're sure most pop ups ask themselves, like "where will the product go?", "how do we create a natural flow?", and "where will the customer checkout?"

 

But, the more we stood in the POD, the more we started to ask ourselves WHO would be visiting our pop up shop. We figured we'd meet a lot of people shopping for gifts... and, where do most people, regardless of the holiday exchange gifts?

 

The living room.

 

...besides, if you were hanging out in a POD for seven weeks, wouldn't you want it to be super comfortable?

 

What products can people expect to see?

We launched two new scents and three new products for this event. Along with our Beard and Scruff Oil, you'll find Beard Balms, Beard and Body Soaps, and Scent Boosts available in "Cardamom and Cedarwood" and "Petitgrain and Sandalwood."

 

We even made it super easy to give these as gifts by creating The Really, Really, Useful Beard Care Kit which comes with a 5oz soap, 1oz oil, 2oz balm, and 1/2oz scent boost and The Really Useful Beard Care Kit which comes with a 5oz soap, 1/2oz oil, and 1/6oz scent boost.
