From ABC10 news: UPcyclePOP, a new kind of holiday market. The pop-up shop is comprised of artwork repurposed and upcycled art, furniture, fashion, home design, and inventions. Visitors can watch artists create work from discarded items, or try a workshop or two.
UPcyclePOP calls itself “America’s first upcycle market.” The event creators urge everyone to “remake, play, shop, eat and get creative.” The holiday market is the brainchild of Bay Area resident Shira Lane, who moved to Sacramento about 2 years ago.
Lane came up with the event in October after learning about the Creative Economy Pilot Project in Sacramento. She had travelled to other countries and seen their upcycle markets but realized there were none in the U.S. Lane didn’t get the grant but was able to have the event anyway due to support from local artists and the Power Inn Alliance.
The pop-up market beings at 1:30 p.m. at 7300 Folsom Blvd. It will run until 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 16. It will also be open on Sunday, Dec. 17 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m
