Books and Cookies POP-UP Classes

April 3, 2014

Pop-up retail. Pop-up store. Pop-up shop. Flash retailing. However you name it, it’s here to stay! Trending short-term sale spaces have been popping-up in Los Angeles since the late 90s, and we want in!

 

When we learned Books and Cookies would be closing the doors to its flagship retail space, we knew relocation would take some time. We thought of the many retailers we’ve hosted at Books and Cookies for pop-up shops and temp. sales events- A Real Treat Candy Boutique, New Life Consignment, Classic Kids Photography and Kickee Pants to name a few- and what successes their mobile shops had seen. We thought about all the fun we have hosting Crafty Kids at Main Street Santa Monica Famer’s Market, and went straight about bringing back our weekly Story Time and shopping tent there. Continuing to offer hands-on book play and book sales to local families was one thing we knew we could make happen, but that is truly only one aspect of what Books and Cookies can bring to the community.

 

We always liked to say Books and Cookies was like four businesses under one roof - specialty book and children’s retail store, enrichment center, café, and party and event planning service. So, how about thinking beyond the classic retail pop-up? Creating an enriching environment for parents and their kids to play, learn, and grow is an indispensable part of what we do, we’d have to find a way to continue offering weekly classes for our families.

 

Chudney, owner of Books and Cookies, remembered teaching Music Together classes once upon a time at Hill St. Center Yoga. Just up the street from our previous B&C location, it was the perfect fit! With beautiful bamboo floors, a wonderfully bright interior, and not distracting but delightful sounds from the pre-school next door, this space begs for parent-and-me classes. Check us out there 4 days a week throughout April (to start) leading our usual morning classes!

And be sure to stay tuned for future Books and Cookies Pop-Ups until we announce our new permanent location. We've already mastered the Pop-Up kids Birthday Party (post about our recent party at Crestwood Hills Park coming soon!), ask about bringing Books and Cookies to you! Plus, we've got our minds on a little gem called the mobile book truck... go ahead and Google Image "mobile library truck" and feast your eyes! The possiblities are endless!
