Pop Up Shopping in Downtown Tulsa

Hello and Happy December! I've got some news for you and if you're local, it just might mean some magical winter memories are in store for you. The Deco District of Tulsa, Oklahoma has been transformed into a haven for all things festive. A multitude of local businesses have set up temporary shops through the month of December to give Tulsans an idea of how this area could be transformed with the help of retailers and consumers alike. One of the shops that has popped-up for this event is the Indie Emporium Shop!

Deco District Pop-Up Shopping

You will be amazed at how many lovely, unique items you'll find in these shops (see a list of participating businesses here). They all have alluring window displays, and the street is beautifully decorated so you can go for a nice stroll and do a bit of window shopping.

This event is gathering lots of press from local sources, and I got the opportunity to work a shift at the Indie Emporium shop where I was thrilled with the response I was seeing from local consumers. A steady flow of people showed up and visited the area, buying lots of fun items from us and leaving behind a plethora of comments that warmed my heart. They believed in what was going on in Downtown Tulsa, and they wanted to support local businesses and artists.

I had a great time chatting with local shoppers, and I may have even recruited some of them for an upcoming class I'll be doing at the shop. We are going to be making polymer clay snowmen!

I'm teaching a fun holiday class!

Registration is not required but if you know for sure you'd like to attend, you can respond in the comment section of this post or send an email to Holly@maketulsa.com. Drop-ins are also welcome and I will bring plenty of supplies, so feel free to visit the Indie Emporium shop this "Winter Wednesday" (carolers, Santa, $2 specials) from 5 to 8 to browse our collection of homemade goods and make a souvenir from your holiday outing in the Deco District of Tulsa. Hope to see you there!

Tulsa is cool.

Also Tulsans are precious, or is that just you?
