ABOUT us and our history
We are a collection of artists, makers and entrepreneurs focused on creating great quality products for you to love for years to come! The Pop Up Shop came from a few of the I Speak Boutique clients looking to expand their businesses into brick and mortar while still maintaining social and digital presences. Our founder, Brooke of I Speak Boutique®, utilized her 25 years of Fortune 500 Companies retail experience to create the Pop Up Shop. She curated a collection of artists, makers and entrepreneurs for the Pop Up Shop. Our competitive difference is that we artists and makers work at the Pop Up Shop also— we use our time at the shop to gather important feedback from customers on our creations and the direction of our individual companies. We also are an amazing support group for one another and are constantly helping elevate each of the businesses. Come see us, next to Nordstrom’s at The Galleria Mall.
