Christmas Pop-up store The Hovse: the place to be and buy!

 

Festive season fever has arrived in Madrid and despite the fact that we still have 24 days until Christmas; I am not enthusiastic about the stressful consumer obsession that abounds this time of year. For this reason, I declare my deepest love to the best Christmas pop-up store in Madrid: #thehovse!!


You might be familiar with the organizers of this pop-up store concept, as they were also responsible for the successful #theappartment during Christmas 2012 and #thepatio (the trendy terrace and shop) this summer. This Christmas, their apartment was too small and they have therefore established the pop-up store in a huge and lovely house in the Chamberí district.


The shop is small and does not sell bric-a-brac. The seven members of the Better Pop Up crew, are very creative, stylish and hardworking, rendering the pop-up store a place to find special items from more than 80 brands especially selected for the shop.



I suggest Brumalis for flowers crowns and Elite Gourmet for the best Spanish products such as caviar, cava and wines. Maguen and Ecoalf for men's clothing, Balakata for home decorations, La casita de Margaux for children’s wear, La Portegna for leather products and Huipil, Marlota and Helena Rohner for women's clothing and jewelry.


If you are not interested in buying anything but love new concepts and decorations, you will also enjoy visiting The Hovse. Take your time enjoying all the different products on offer. You can also enjoy some lunch or tea at the snack bar from Harina on the second floor or enjoy a cocktail from the Passenger bar, which closes late. Note that you have to ask for the password (yes, indeed, one of the coolest bars in town) before going up to the rooftop to enjoy the view and the lovely plants that have been installed there. 


The Hovse will be opened until 24 December 2013 every day. In my opinion, it is the trendiest place to go for shopping and for being seen!
