wood you be mine?

cause you could be mine
but you're way out of line
-guns n' roses

pop up shops are a great trend right now. it's actually very simple. retail owners open up short term stores, while customers flock to the spaces so they can scoop up the products before the store disappears. this idea first developed in los angeles in 1999, but has since flourished as people look for short term real estate in this economy.

this friday, event designer david stark will open a pop up shop, called wood shop, inside his friend's nolita store, haus interior. with valentine's day around the corner and it being the month of love, the pop up shop's concept focuses on all things love, in the form of wood and all things related to wood shops. very clever idea and i don't doubt that it will deliver.
