Junk and Disorderly's Ponsonby Central pop-up

Junk and Disorderly is the latest pop-up installment to come to Ponsonby Central. The space is a showcase of some collected pieces by the owners who wish to share the message of the store – the art of doing what you love.

Located in Ponsonby Central, the 33 square metre space is filled with cultivated items by owners Nicole and Richard Stewart. 

Junk and Disorderly has a range of vintage items, new collectables and gifts for almost every person. Their wider purchasable range is available at any of the other two store locations. The pop-up is more of a gallery installment, which has come to life with the help of Xero.  

The second hand good and collectables store has two locations, Northcote in Auckland and New Plymouth, and has curated a collection to bring to the pop-up. Which ended February 25.

The pop-up gallery was an innovative way to attract attention for both Junk and Disorderly and Xero, bringing together two very opposite companies in an engaging and interactive fashion.

The thoughtfully-curated exhibition of hand-picked items led many visitors to seek the address of Junk and Disorderly’s iconic Northcote store so they could see the full collection.

Xero’s NZ country manager, Craig Hudson, was pleased with the success of the pop-up gallery. "We were delighted so many members of the public popped in to get a glimpse of Nicole and Richard's world, and hopefully inspire others to focus on the art of doing what they love.”

“Xero is all about celebrating small business and helping them succeed.”

Ponsonby Central is the place for alternative pop-up ups, recently homing Shop/Slow exhibition for emerging local artists.
