Little Shop pops up this Saturday in Dartmouth

Posted By on Wed, Sep 6, 2017 at 2:38 PM

Support is contagious, or at least it ought to be, says Robin Lalonde. Overwhelmed by the help she received in her first few months as a new mom, Lalonde is paying the good, neighbourhood vibes forward with Little Shop, a yard sale/pop-up shop hybrid making its debut this weekend at 22 John Street in Dartmouth.

“I really wanted to take that energy and put it into something,” she says of the idea, which was inspired by her doula—Stevie Fort of The Bounty pop-up shops. “ I have all these friends who are super creative, and I wanted to do something to bring them together and give them a platform to encourage them to be creative. I expected it to be me and my friends hanging out in my backyard, but it’s not gonna be that anymore.”

From 9am to 6pm on Saturday, Little Shop will bring pour-over coffees and baked goods, housewares, small furniture, clothing, cocktails, preserves and art outside.

“It’s mostly just women supporting each other and being creative, and a lot of people who are just starting out," she says of this event, which she hopes will be the first of many.

Pin Action, Common Confections, The Bounty, Doap Soap and Willow Stitches will be among the vendors selling their goods and there’ll also be a play area for the kiddos.
