What to Expect in Our Zero-Waste Pop Up (including the COVID adaptations)

Bubbles & Balms will be hosting a Zero-Waste Pop Up at Market Square in Saint John, NB between November 24 and December 24 of 2020.

The Good

We love creating boutique spaces. 

When we first started making products, we were terribly fearful of putting ourselves out there. We loved talking about the products, ONCE someone asked us about them. But the thought of being loud about what we were doing scared the soap bubbles right out of us. So, one of the things that we did to compensate for our anxiety was try to build eye-catching displays;

We would build, rebuild, repurpose, paint, and repaint to create unique experiences each time. We were never very proud of our packaging (until now!), so we focused on display and the product in the packaging to build our community.

The Complete Package

Our Zero-Waste Pop Up will be a bit different! The focus now truly is the product. With the plastic burden lifted, our natural daily-care products will be on full display in a clean a minimalist space with great lighting.

  • Private 1on1 shopping by appointment

  • Checkin and self-assessment at the door

  • Limited capacity

  • Masks required

  • Sanitizer at entrance and throughout location

  • Floor decals and directional arrows

  • Regular sanitization

  • Smell samples in glass jars for easy cleaning

  • Touch samples provided by request on popsicle sticks
