Taking place over the Bank Holiday weekend, the pop up shop will open with a launch event on Thursday (25 August) which members of the public can register to attend via Facebook and receive a free glass of bubbly.

The event will showcase the handmade goods of 20 UK Etsy sellers, providing customers with the opportunity to meet some of the makers including Pasinga, Sincerley Louise, Nikki Strange, Ms Spanner, Cookie Art London, and Fox In The Attic.

As well as live demos from designers and bespoke personalisation, American BBQ street food specialists Shotgun will be serving authentic barbecue dishes.

The John Lewis rooftop garden opened at the end of May and has also been hosting pop-up restaurants in collaboration with Night Tales, a coffee shop, and various other activities. It is due to close on 4 September.

In June, the store hosted an American Crew pop-up, while in May it partnered with Airbnb to launch 'The Perfect Host' masterclasses.
