Pop Up Shop revives Newport tradition

Memories of Christmas past were revived today when the 'Christmas Countdown' was re-introduced in the old Jack Davies toy shop, now occupied by the recently opened Pop Up Shop.

'It's been really interesting to hear from a number of people who have come into the shop and told stories of visiting the old toy shop and their recollection of the countdown of days to Christmas. Several suggested that we put it back in the window, and it seemed appropriate to do so ready for the Christmas lights switch-on on Friday' said Tim Pryce, who set up the Pop Up Shop earlier this month.

The shop now has over 30 local independent businesses with over 1000 individually crafted items for sale, including perfumery, jewellery, chocolate, Christmas bunting and stationery, stunning photgraphs, candles, cushions to suit all budgets.
