A Pop Up Shop Christmas in Penge

Published Wednesday, 13 December 2017

The Pengetout pop-up shop in Penge High Street is gearing up for Christmas with extended hours and special events to entice shoppers with unique gifts and stocking fillers

The locally based entrepreneurs and artists are selling an eclectic mix of products including Danish clothing and jewellery, retro teak furniture, upholstery, gifts, prints, paintings and haberdashery supplies.

“The council is proud to support this initiative to give a platform for some fledgling local businesses to grow.  Pengetout has enabled some new and expanding businesses to test local response to their products in a low-risk trading environment.  In the run up to Christmas why not support Pengetout and other local independent traders – and bring home some unique gifts for your loved ones.” said Councillor Peter Morgan, Executive Councillor for Renewal. 

Visit Pengetout at 109 High Street, Penge for Christmas shopping with a difference:

Late night shopping with guest trader ‘Elvira's Secret Pantry’ - Thursday 14 December. Elvira's Secret Pantry is a local artisan Italian bakery specialising in freshly baked products free from gluten, diary and yeast.  They use the finest locally sourced organic produce to make great tasting, excellent quality free-from products that can be enjoyed by everyone as well as those who are careful about what they eat. Elvira will have a selection of goodies for Christmas for sale and will be offering tastings of some of her products.

Last minute  late night shopping, with beer tasting - Thursday 21 December. Penge-based Southey Brewery will be offering a tasting and selling their special Christmas beers. Penge Tout will also be offering a gift wrapping service and you can leave a wish list with us for your partner to collect on the evening.

The shop is also open every Sunday in December from midday to 4pm, including Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.

Pengetout is a pop-up shop and workspace where a number of new and expanding local businesses have been sharing space to sell interesting products and services. The initiative was launched in March 2017. The project is funded by Bromley Council’s as part of their ‘Penge, Open for Business’ programme which has provided free training and support to new and existing local businesses in and around the High Street.
