Exchange Uporium Grand Opening


A few days ago I headed to the Exchange District's first Pop Up Shop Hop. The Exchange Uporium features a heap of WESTies and other rad local makers/curators. As I shot the soft opening on Tuesday, I quickly picked up on the distinct, genius flow of the shop. 




While every vendor had their designated place, everything just...WENT. A mix of eccentric displays, IKEA-esque shelving, vintage furniture pieces and, pretty-well, half'a tree stump made up the main room perfectly. SCORE.













And yes, there's a vintage room. Not cluttered in the least bit, which rules. A unique change room, massive mirrors, and a big ole shoe rack (read: there is LOTS of swell footwear!)..


A seriously wicked shop I'm happy to be a part of. The Uporium is open 7 days a week with pretty minty hours, to boot. Be sure to check out their Facebook page for more info.



Oh, and everyone's favourite embroidery can be found in the powder room.
