Indie pop-up shop opens in former Fresh building on Charles Street

Fifteen works of Launceston creators are on show at the city’s latest pop-up shop. 

Indie store has opened its doors for just four days in the former Fresh building at 180 Charles Street. 

The shop has been organised by Mel Driver of Embalm Skincare and Samara Lee of Native Flame Eco Care. 

“Mel and I are both into natural products. She asked myself and Tina [Goninon] to collaborate and do something so people can come in and check out what Launceston has to offer,” Ms Lee said. 

The store opened on Thursday, with Ms Driver saying they had been overwhelmed by the support shown to the business. 

“It was a really good mix between foot traffic and people who have seen our posts on Instagram,” she said.  

“It’s really nice to actually see the support from the locals.”

The shop had a late-night shopping event on Friday, with about 90 people expected to attend. 

Indie will be open until 4pm on Sunday.
