, three pop-up retail spaces, called EUGPop!, will add color and commerce to Olive Street between Broadway and 10th Avenue. The small shops fashioned from storage containers will feature local designers, creators and artists, and will be open through August 18.
Two local vendors will be introduced in the pop-up units. Threadbare Print House will be featuring their mobile print-cycle and will be creating silkscreen t-shirts on site as well as offering a large selection of T-shirt designs from their collection. The University of Oregon (UO) Product Design will have creations from students and staff including handcrafted contemporary furniture, ceramics and home goods.
The pop-up units will be located in front of 942 Olive, home of UO Product Design and RAIN Eugene, our local
