Planet Claire is excited to be part of GATHER –  the 3 day urban social for shopping, learning & getting together in style.

From July 27th through the 29th, the first annual GATHER Pop Up Shop will take place in the heart of downtown Vancouver. One of Gastown’s most popular destinations, the former Boneta’s, will be home to Gather and fabulously transformed into the next frontier in social shopping.

*Expect an explosion of creativity, community and collections to covet.*

S’been much too long my darlings!

The last 6 months have been a bit of a supernova, but we’re back – bigger and brighter than ever!

We’ve got plans for a 3 day pop-up shop coming up at the end of July, and will be introducing some awesome new designers to you, some local and some international.

The online store will be updated (toot-suite!) with our hand-picked vintage and pre-loved/consignment duds – think designer jeans, barely worn Fluevogs(!), and vintage summer dresses.

More details, photos, and witty remarks coming soon!

Sunday, December 11th

112 East Hastings ~ACME Studios

4 ~ 9 pm

 Planet Claire will be having an xmas party on the afternoon into the eve of December 11th. We will be taking donations for the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre (http://dewc.ca/), so bring along a donation of pink gloves, pink socks, pink scarf, or a pink toque and receive 15% off! And everyone receives a gift with purchase.

Cash and Paypal only, sorry, no debit or cc!

We will provide drinks, treats, and christmas cheer!

The easiest route may be to park in Chinatown, or take the skytrain to Stadium. Here’s a link to a map to the studio from Tinseltown: http://bit.ly/nPCiP9 (it’s about a 5 min walk). Look for the doorman in the Acme Studios Shirt and remember, it’s a back alley entrance.

The ACME Studio Building (112 E. Hastings) currently houses the Labyrinth Artist Society which is an artist-run collective, and has recently founded the Labyrinth Gallery; a back-alley entrance curatorial space between Columbia and Main street. In coordination with the City’s mandate to develop the 100 block/south side Hastings a series of fundraiser art exhibits will be presented; creatively utilizing the building’s rear foyer, main, and descending stairwell, main floor foyer, ascending to the top floor.

ACME Studios houses 18 studios, 3 galleries (GAM, Remmington & Labyrinth), and over 40 artists, ranging from photographers, painters, sculptors, jewellery designers, textile artists, and musicians.

Planet Claire’s Halloween Pop-Up Shop ~ October 26th

•October 23, 2011 • Leave a Comment

The Planet Claire Pop-Up Shop for October will feature tons of vintage clothing, shoes and accessories (lots of ideas for last minute costumes!), as well as local designers and sustainable fashions. As Hallow’s Eve is fast approaching, expect spiked punch, a musical performance, and Halloween Goodie Bags for the first 13 people (much thanks to the sponsors; Artist Megz Majewski, Burt’s Bees Cosmetics, Denman Island Chocolate, The Templeton Restaurant, Queen of Hearts Jewellery, and more!).

Back alley entrance, between Hastings and Pender, look for the doorman in an ACME Studios shirt.

Keep in mind that even though this is close to the heart of the DTES (actually Chinatown), it is only two blocks from the old store location, completely safe, I walk there at night, alone, all the time. However, to make you feel extra secure, there will be a doorman who can direct you in and out of the back alley entrance, as well as there is a front entrance by way of one of the galleries. The easiest route may be to park in Chinatown, or take the skytrain to Stadium. Here’s a link to a map to the studio from Tinseltown:http://bit.ly/nPCiP9 (it’s about a 5 min walk).
