Holiday POP UP Shops!
The GREEN MEADOWS Pop Up Shop will open Dec 5-7, the first of three holiday pops in Mt Airy Village –
Each shop will run Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the MaMa studio until Christmas.
GREEN MEADOWS is a local and holiday twist on a nursery/floral/gift
shop that has run successfully
in Chadds Ford for more than 30 years. Its owner’s daughter and
son-in-law, Kira Luxon
Pepe, 33, and Chris Pepe, 31, live walking distance to the Village, having moved from Brooklyn last year. The shop will sell Botanicals like paperwhites, amaryllis and original hand-[made wreaths in three sizes; high grade garden tools including some from Japan; handmade animal character dolls; leather and linen bags--hand- and utilitarian; giftable personal products and porcelain baskets by Philadelphia studio. Chris also produces cards and invitations from antique letterpresses. The shop is open 9 to 4:30 pm on Friday and until 5 or so, on Saturday and Sunday.
"What we love about Mt Airy is that it leaves room for expansion. It’s a place where creative pioneering needs to be done,” says Kira.
That may explain their exceptional accommodation for performance art, tucking much of the shop to the back studio on Friday and Saturday nights , to make way for Smokey Scout productions' December show, Nice & Fresh -- theater, dance and circus arts. Or as producer Josh McIlvaine likes to say, “Art for the price of a sandwich”. 6 & 8 pm, both nights.
On Sunday night, Laura Promiscuo’s voice students perform at 7 pm. Open to the public.
Meet Chris and Kira in the store, and online: Kiraluxon.com , Cavepixel, com and Cedarlanepress.com (letterpress printing).

The following extended weekends (Friday, Saturday and Sundays), pop up shops will be presented by deCaumette/Berger/Soles and by Isa Goldfarb… hand-knit and handmade clothing, vintage and new jewelry and more.
