A POP-UP shop was opened in Rubery by Tracey’s Dream and Friends on Wednesday, selling handbags, purses, scarves, backpacks and other items.
It was the first event of its kind for the charity which was launched in September 2016 in memory of Tracey Pugh, who lost her brave battle with cancer.
The pop-up shop was the brainchild of Tracey’s son Curtis who opened the short-term store in Squab Storage, Hollymoor Way.
Curtis, who has ADHD, autism and has battled mental health issues, said he had surprised himself by being able to achieve the opening.
He said: “I am extremely excited about the pop-up shop – it’s all new and we hope for it to be a success.
“I wanted to take this challenge on, to give me more confidence – I’m not going to lie, it was hard sorting things out for the shop but it’s all been worth it because it’s for the public to have the chance to support us.
“I have put great thought into this and many hours to try and get it right.”
He added the first one went really well.
The next one should be taking place at the same venue on August 30 – visit traceysdream.co.uk for the latest updates.
