The Cronx Boutique returns to Croydon for Christmas 2021
Croydon's unique pop-up shop The Cronx Boutique returns to East Croydon for two months in the build up to Christmas.
The creative team behind the original pop-up shop that opened beside East Croydon station in 2019 are back and on a post-pandemic mission to champion the local creative scene, bringing positivity and festive cheer with their alternative shopping experience.
The Cronx Boutique is a collective of three local brands, all passionate about Croydon - The Croydon Photographer, East Croydon Cool and Johnny Howl Club - locals who report on the fun and fab side of our town, create community-inspired artwork, run events and sell merchandise to enhance local pride and make Croydoners smile.
The innovative pop up shop returns to Caithness Walk, the alternative approach to East Croydon station, just off Dingwall Avenue and behind Boxpark.
This unique destination welcomed thousands of visitors in 2019, offered arts and crafts events and sold a brilliant range of uniquely Croydon gifts and art work - all whilst simultaneously raising money for a local charity. This years incarnation will be bigger and better and with an even greater focus on Croydon's creative offerings.
The 2021 Cronx Boutique will have a strong focus on supporting other local creatives. Recognising the impact lockdown has had on fellow artists, the Cronx Boutique will run a number of initiatives to help spotlight local talent (e.g welcoming Weekend Sellers, providing a Pick-Up Point for local foodies, playing music from local radio station and working with a local stylist on the design of the space).
So, when looking for that personal birthday or Christmas gift and need some Cronx-inspiration (Cronxpiration?), you'll find art prints, candles, mugs, t-shirts, tote bags, magnets, notebooks, cards, coasters and a whole lot more. All with a uniquely Croydon twist!
The Cronx Boutique opens Wednesday 3 November and runs until Christmas Eve, staffed Tuesday to Sunday each week.
