Do you like to shop local and support small businesses? Then a boutique such as Pop Events is the place for you. All of the stockists are South East Queensland based and have come from humble beginnings. For many, this is their first foray into a retail environment.

Next time you're in the Newstead area head to Pop Events. Come and explore the wares and items contained within the shop and gain a better understanding of the brands, creators, designers and owners behind them. You won't be disappointed at the large array of beautiful items on display with something to suit everyone's taste, budget and age.
The best thing about Pop Events is that the people who have stock in the store, work there so you are likely to get the opportunity to speak with the designer directly. This is something that isn't the norm and sets these brands apart from those stocked in large retail chain stores.
