Little Collins Street Is Getting a Pop-Up Exclusively for Online Stores

Just in time for Christmas shopping.

Ever wanted to put a face to the gifted folk who create and curate your favourite online stores? A brand new pop-up in Melbourne, dubbed Cloud Street Store, is giving you the chance – just in time for Christmas.

For a week from Tuesday, December 8, the street will transform into a mini-market. For the first four days, four retailers will be peddling their wares. Over the weekend, they’ll be joined by another six. So there won’t be any missing out for nine-to-fivers.

If all things edgy and eclectic — from skull-parading t-shirts to tote bags bearing Oscar Wilde’s face to cushions covered in black panthers — are on your (or a buddy’s) Christmas list, you’ll want to visit The Club of Odd Volumes stall. Meanwhile, for furniture and kitchenware, check out Holy Funk Co. Its unique collection specialises in Scandinavian, industrial, retro and vintage designs.

Christmas mania wearing you down? Take a moment out with Bellabox. They’ll be offering passersby exclusive access to a bunch of beauty products, news snippets, makeup tips and tutorials. Nearby, Kester Black will be keeping your skin clean and your nails smart with its range of ethically-sourced soaps and nail polishes. Kris Kringle, anyone?

Cloud Street Store is the creation of Xero, an online accounting software company that’s passionate about helping online businesses. The store is popping up on Little Collins Street from December 8 to 13, open 10-8pm. Head to the website for more info.
