While we’re rather tired of the idea of ‘pop-ups’, we’ll make an exception for Poundshop, opening for just three days this weekend.

Founded by design collective Household and illustrator Sara Melin, Poundshop, which sells very reasonably priced design products, was launched last year, and featured in 2010 and 2011’s London Design Festivals, as well as in the Somerset House Christmas market.

As well as festive fare, such as Christmas cards, there will be products from a wide range of disciplines such as illustration, homeware, stationery and prints.

We love the sinister looking bird of prey print by Claire McManus, and the fantastic Beard Cards by Sane & Able. Everything is priced at either £1, £5, or £10 – so even the scroogiest/skintest gift-buyer need not leave empty handed.
