A restaurant that was forced to close and a woman made redundant from the fashion industry have joined forces to create a pop up shop. Restaurant Union Mash Up in Hull was was forced to shuts its doors after a planning application to allow it to be used as a public bar and restaurant was rejected. Caroline Pendleton will be running pop up shop Nest from the premises with her husband David.
The shop opened on Friday 26th July and will run for four days.
Caroline, of Marlborough Avenue, said: “The venue is still sticking to its name – there is a mash-up of things going on there. It came about because I was asking for premises that could be used for a pop-up shop and Dave Stead the owner got in touch. I’ve done Beverley Market and the market at Fruit Space in Hull before but this will be our first proper premises. We’ll test the water and see how it goes. We might look for something more permanent if it is successful.”
The Pendletons restore vintage furniture into a retro, vintage and shabby-chic style and have been running their company for only 7 weeks.
