Fashion Co-Op Now Open Until 2014

popBy Laura Braden

From the GOOD Street Food + Design Market to East Sac Mercantile, Sacramento has no shortage of design/fashionistas working together to create spaces where commerce and creativity exist hand-in-hand.

And the midtownPOP Boutique (2009 N Street) is no different.

The concept is simple – five indie boutiques sharing one space. Housed in an old home in the heart of Midtown, midtownPOP provides a unique shopping experience that is convenient, laidback, collaborative and welcoming.

Participating boutiques include…

  • Article Consignment Boutique – Family-owned boutique (Valerie and Abraham Sanchez) featuring clothing, shoes, jewelry, and accessories for men and women. I scored a flawless pair of Prada heels for $28. I also spotted Louis Vuitton bags and Manolo Blahnik heels, in addition to vintage items and jewelry from Mikobella Designs.
  • GypsyMobileBoutique – Sacramento’s first mobile boutique now has a stationary home! Owner Bridgette Maldonado provides trendy women’s attire, clothing made in the USA, local clothing designs and local/handmade jewelry & accessories.
  • Little Revelations – Adorable children’s apparel and accessories that utilize a lot of vintage fabrics, hand-painted T shirts and American Apparel (since they’re made in California!). I don’t have any kiddos but could see this easily becoming my new go-to place for baby showers.
  • Shop JUST  – (Fair trade) beaded jewelry, bags and home accessories from Bali and Guatemala. The owner, Julie Beckner, travels to both on a regular basis (lucky duck!) to personally pick out all of her products/suppliers. I scored a gorgeous cuff bracelet with giant wooden clasp and turquoise beads for just $16.
  • Swagger’s – Tagline is “Don’t Wear It. Rock It.” (LOVE!) Her shop was filled with edgy and unique pieces (bags, shoes and jewelry) that she had either custom designed and/or enhanced. The owner, Tyniece Hall, also mentioned that she can swag out any of your current shoes/bags/jewelry – just let her know your concept, and she’ll quote you a price!

Be sure and support these awesome entrepreneurs ASAP because this retail/shopping experiment is only open through the end of the year.

After that, it’s unsure where they’ll go next (rumors are that the space is slated to become a restaurant), but we hope this concept picks up steam … or even better … evolves into part of the Sacramento Public Market.
