Thanks for all of the good times London. This past weekend on Piccadilly we held our first ever Pop Up Flea outside of the U.S. of A. Everyone involved took a big leap of faith in our concept and we appreciate everyone that traveled far and wide to make the event a success. The best part was the fact that Pop Up Flea felt so at home in London…that and all of those pints at the Red Lion. We came together, saw old friends and made new ones. Now spirits are high for December’s Pop up Flea New York (which is going to be our strongest line up yet) and next year’s Pop up Flea London. Things might even get weird enough for a Pop Up Flea Tokyo and a PUF venture in Moscow.

Everything in London came together with the help of a really great group of people including: J.P. Williams, Michiel van Wyngaarden, Craig White, Mary Wallace and the rest of the folks running point for St. James’s, our problem solver and chief river rower Mr. James Bowthorpe and finally all of the good people at The Bread Collective.

Many thanks to our brand friends for participating: Filson, Shinola, Marwood, The Vintage Showroom, Anthem, Red Wing Heritage, Levi’s Made & Crafted, Levi’s Vintage Clothing, Man of the World, Aether, Todd Snyder, North Sea Clothing, General Knot, Field Notes, London Undercover, The Good Flock, Tanner Goods and Tellason. Here’s a look back at all the of fun.

See you next at PUFNYC December 6th, 7th and 8th.

    I’m properly gutted I couldn’t make it, only a few hours train journey but work had me stuck up the north of England so it wasn’t meant to be. Good to see some snaps of it all. Another time…

    Just to throw it out there with the other great ideas for future editions in new and spectacular places; why not Pop Up Flea Amsterdam? (Absolutely not out of self interest.) The pictures look majestic.

    I would have thought more made in UK brands would have been present, sort of the spirit of the thing.

    We had a good group of British brands there and a selection of Made in UK stuff, but many brands wanted to take a wait and see approach. Next time will be bigger in that regard.

    Would love to have seen more Made In America brands . Loved Tanner Goods and the Field Notes stuff . I love the idea of having access to brands that are hard to get in London and the U.K. I went to the Pop Up Flea for that reason. I won’t be able to get to the States for a while, however, a little bit of the States can come to me.
    So, hopefully more American brands next year at Pop Up Flea London .

    Nice job. I wish I could have been there. Great brands in a great place sold by and to great people. Nothing could be finer.

    Sorry to have missed the event in London. Living in Paris, I would have made the trip. Please keep me on the mailing list for the future.
