Here it Comes: Pop Up Shaker - local food, local made, close to home
Dateline: 10/24/13 - This year it will be easy to keep your seasonal shopping local in Shaker Heights. Pop Up Shaker springs to life along Chagrin Boulevard beginning November 30.
Pop Up Shaker is a partnership among:
- Cleveland Craft Connection with Lucy’s Sweet Surrender
- Cleveland Culinary Launch and Kitchen with Juma Gallery
- Upcycle St. Clair’s Shop the Window program
Shoppers will be delighted by the unique gifts and DIY craft workshops from more than a dozen craft vendors curated by Cleveland Craft Connection, set up in a space decorated for the season at Lucy’s Sweet Surrender (20314 Chagrin). Different vendors every week!
Taste buds will be tickled by the offerings from Cleveland Culinary Launch and Kitchen, which will transform the café space in Juma Gallery (20100 Chagrin) into a food marketplace featuring food demonstrations and edible treats for purchase.
To further enhance the shopping experience, Shop the Window will fill a vacant storefront between Lucy’s and Juma (20306 Chagrin) with gifts curated by Upcycle St. Clair, including some created by Shaker residents and artists. With a QR scanner downloaded for free on a smartphone, shoppers can stroll by and purchase a gift at any time just by scanning the code.
This festive winter pop up event will bring local crafters, cooks and bakers inside two of Shaker’s established independent retailers giving shoppers a lively shopping experience and a sense of the new, walkable Van Aken district that is in the works.
