Walking along the Avenue near Antigone Books and Hippie Gypsy on a recent weekend, we spotted a new A-Frame sign that we had never noticed before. It advertised “ShopUp Tucson,” a pop-up boutique.
Owner Mary Vancza started ShopUp Tucson as a rentable space to host pop-up events like shopping boutiques, events, and more. Essentially a place for artisans and markets to do business, without a shop of their own.
ShopUp Tucson recently announced permanent summer hours, noting that the shop will change and host different events often. When we went to ShopUp Tucson, the space was filled with fantastic furniture, clothes and home accessories.
Bring the start of summer, their current event is called “Summer Splash Bazaar.”
Shopping hours at ShopUp Tucson are Thursday – Sunday 4 p.m. – 10 p.m. Appointments for private shopping are also available. ShopUp Tucson is located at 329 E. Seventh St.
