Poking Our Nose Out of The Fox Hole

Over the last two days we have had the opportunity to spread our wings and collaborate closely with a friend to bring Quirky Fox to a different location and a different market. 

In what is usually the home to precision tools, hard work and sawdust, Quirky Fox has worked with Bespoked Furniture to create a three day pop up showcase. Temporarily transforming his workshop into a retail pop up store, Jared of Bespoked Furniture has kindly helped us showcase a range of art, glass and ceramics along side his custom made beds, tables and stools.

A slightly early closing on Thursday allowed us to safely wrap and transport over seventy pieces of art and design up to New Plymouth. With the help of a wayward GPS system (that seemed determined to take us the most scenic route possible) we eventually found a workshop that was slowly transformed into a welcoming showcase. Over several hours art was hung and tables dressed to add the finishing touch. 

Returning the next morning (taking a much easier route without the aid of a GPS) we were treated to the sight of a fantastic layout that in our tired state we didn't fully appreciate the previous night.

It's been a long couple of days but a fantastic opportunity for both Bespoked Furniture and Quirky Fox. With just one more day on the cards make sure you take the opportunity to visit us at 26 Gilmour Street, New Plymouth.
