Written by Rebecca . Posted in MDML



How does Pop Ups Work?

Pop Ups SA hires a space in a shopping centre. We then release the dates and locations on facebook and our website. 
If you have an amazing business that wants to expand their customer base to a different clientele then you jump on our website and fill in an application form for the day or days you would love to trade.


How will it benefit my business?

Pop Ups SA can benefit your business, hobby or online business in a variety of ways.

You only have to apply for as many days you can handle. You have a child free Wednesday? Book for just that one day. Or you can do multiple days!!

You will utilize Pop Ups SA equipment, so you do not have to lug around tables to and from the event.

Your business will be exposed to thousands of people per day.

Advertising for your business through Pop Ups SA and a variety of other businesses.

Pop Ups SA is a registered, insured and approved (to lease out sites to others) business. We are unlike other people who may offer a position, as we meet all the legal requirements.


What is a single booking?

A single booking is one wooden unit on one day of trade.


What is a double booking?

A double booking is having two single sites put together, so basically two wooden units on one day of trade.

We have other configurations we can use depending on your requirements.  So you may want:

two step units or

one step unit and one clothes rack or

one step unit and one crate unit or

one crate unit and one clothing rack or

two clothing racks

The choices are up to you.

*please see the terms and conditions for descriptions of units*


Can I share a booking? 

No. As we have separated each day into six individual spots, having two businesses share one table would just be too crowded. Our prices are set low enough that they are affordable to trade within a shopping centre.


What are the hours of trade?

Pop Ups SA follow regular trade hours unless otherwise specified.

Monday 9am - 5pm

Tuesday 9am -5pm

Wednesday 9am -5pm

Thursday 9am -9pm

Friday 9am -5pm

Saturday 9am - 5pm

Sunday 11am - 5pm


Will I be trading by myself?

We will always endevour to have a minimum of two traders per day so no one trades alone. There will be occasions where we can not fulfill that, but we will always inform you if this is to be the case. There is a maximum of six traders each day of trade.


Why are you more expensive than a market?

Pop Ups SA is not a market. We run out of shopping centres which has a larger amount of foot traffic than a market. We also run for normal shopping trade hours as opposed to a few hours. Centres charge us for the hire of the site and they charge according to how many shoppers walk through the doors each year. Our prices are very cheap compared to the cost of booking the site for one day.


Will my business be suitable to apply?

We love having new and exciting businesses join our Pop Up family. While we have many business who are successful, we can not predict how each individual business will trade. We use the rule of six. It can take up to six times of seeing or hearing about your business before a customer will feel comfortable purchasing from your business.


How do I apply?

Our application process is simple. We have a special APPLY HERE tab on the top menu of our web page. The application is simple to fill out with your details and what you wish to sell and the dates you would like to trade. Once your application has been sent and your deposit has been paid, we will review your application and let you know if you have been successful. You will always hear from Pop Ups SA even if you have not been successful. 


Do I have to pay an application fee?

Yes. Your application will not be considered until this deposit of $50 has been paid. If your application is successful the deposit will go towards your invoice. For example: one days trade $150 - $50 deposit =$100 left owing. If your application is unsuccessful we will refund your deposit within a week of email.


How do I pay?

We have two options for payments:

You can make payments via by depositing into our bank account. 

Pop Ups SA bsb 105198 acc 068535640


through the paypal website using our email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


How do I know what days have vacancies?

When a day is booked out, we remove that day from the drop down box on the application form. If a date does not appear, it is not available.


When do I set up?

We send out a BUMP IN PACK via email prior to the start of the event. This has all the details in it. Set up can occur anytime from 7am on the day of trade. You must be set up and ready for trade by 8.30am. If you are unsure how long it takes you to set up we recommend a mock set up at home to time. You will need to add driving time and unpacking time. You may be able to set up the night prior to you day of trade but this must be done after trade closes for the day, you must cover your setup with a bed sheet or tarp. Leaving items is at your own risk.


Where do I park?

Parking locations are provided within the BUMP IN PACK. But common sense should always be used. We will not be held liable for any parking infringements.


What do I need to bring?

For a single booking, Pop Ups SA supplies each trader with one wooden lockable unit with key, signage, insurance, advertising and a chair. Each trader needs to bring their stock, float/change and a smile.


Can I use my own banner?

Pop Ups SA wants to promote your business!! This is why we are here!! It is all about getting your small business out there and being able to afford a place you wouldn't normally be able to afford.
We cannot allow each and every trader to have their own signage as then it will not become a uniform look. And as we hire the space as Pop Ups SA the shopping centres want us to have a clean uniformed look.

BUT we encourage and LOVE you to have your own flair in your set up!! 
Use your logo where you can, in a photo frame placed nicely – flyers, business cards, uniforms etc etc Your set up is not limited on the table to display your amazing business!!

By using Pop Ups branding, it unites all traders together and gives a uniform look which is a requirement set by all centres.

By having customers know and recognize the Pop Ups SA name and logo means that they trust Pop Ups traders and know that each trader is of a reputable nature.

"I have a small business which I am trying to expand, and had previously looked into stalls in shopping centres and they are too expensive (about $2500 per week!) which is not feasible for me. Rebecca's business Pop Ups SA is amazing and worked out perfect. It allowed me to commit to any day (or multiple days) without having to pay thousands of dollars.

It 's great exposure to the general public and to local retailers as well. What makes it worth while though, is Rebecca's commitment to her traders. She is highly organised, efficient and maintains excellent communication throughout the whole process. She even leaves water and sweet snacks to keep the traders hydrated, although it is not her responsibility to do so! She certainly cares about her traders and it shows.

I have tried other "pop up" type events but they don't even compare.

If you want to be noticed and get exposure in shopping centres, Pop Ups SA is for you. All I recommend is that you do your homework first and research what area your product/service is going to be most popular. There's no point going to a market, doing poorly then giving up, all because that area isn't for you and you didn't do your research before hand. Set yourself a business plan and keep trying! If you aren't committed to your business, then stick to small markets and fairs. If you want yourself well known, then this is for you! Get out there and be engaging!

It certainly helped me, and now I (Garden Gypsy) have featured in several newspaper articles, sell at retail outlets and now looking at starting my own shop. Like Nike's motto says..."Just Do It!"

"Happy Fairy Floss highly recommends Pop Ups SA to every small business in Adelaide. 

So far we have worked with Rebecca for half a year and we are
satisfied with every single event with Pop Ups SA. 

It works!"

"I had the pleasure of working with Pop Ups SA on four occasions in 2015, in both a market and shopping centre environments during the busy Christmas period.

On all occasions I found the planning and organisation to be first class.

Excellent communication, easy to deal with, flexibility and understanding are all qualities that come to mind.

Thank you Rebecca, for giving me the opportunity to trade in your unique environments.

I look forward to 2016 and beyond and having an excellent relationship with you."

"Pop Ups SA has been an invaluable asset to my business since my first event in June 2015.

I would not have had the opportunity to trade in Westfield Marion and West Lakes if it was not for Pop Ups SA. My customer base has increased immensely and I have also made some great new friends in other traders.

I am someone who loves to know as much information as possible when going into a new situation and I love that we get a detailed bump in pack in advance of any event, so you know all the rules and regulations of trading in a centre and you know exactly where to tell people you will be located.

I cannot thank Rebecca and Pop Ups SA enough for accepting my business and I would highly recommend Pop Ups SA to anyone with a small business. 

Thanks Rebecca"

Welcome to Pop Ups SA.


Pop Ups SA is a unique collaboration of local, handmade or South Australian creators and market stall holders working together in a pop up shop to bring great products to you.

There is something different each day.


Pop Ups SA brings local business to community shopping centres

so South Australian people can shop SA, shop Small Business and shop Handmade!




~Next Event~



Monday 17th - Sunday 23rd July 


location by target


At Pop Ups SA, we love homemade, locally made and great South Australian small businesses and are always looking out for fantastic hobby, internet, market based, work from home and small businesses who would love to join our Pop Ups family.


Pop Ups SA helps out by cutting the costs of trading within major South Australian shopping centres.

Pop Ups SA is a mixture of a mini market and a retail store all in one.


Centres can cost $2000 plus per week for one business to trade. This is by far out of reach for so many people.

So what we do here at Pop Ups SA, is lease the site under our name and then by sharing the site each day with a maximum of six businesses, we can help by reducing the cost but still helping each trader having access to 20,000 or more customers per day!

It is a marketplace that travels from centre to centre.


By sharing the site, cost is reduced which allows a larger profit for each trader, a great customer base, great business promotion and the chance for customers to see, feel, taste the product and meet the smiling face behind the name.


Pop Ups SA supplies the location, information, advertising, insurance, tables and all the headaches involved.

Traders need to supply their amazing products and a friendly face.

Obviously we do have some restrictions on things like banners and heights as the centres like to have things look a certain way.


We have a FAQS page and our terms and conditions are available on our website, that can be read at your leisure. This will give you more information on what we require and what we are about.




The centres we trade within, include:




12,000 customers per day on average



 21,000 customers per day on average



29,000 customers per day on average



31,000 customers per day on average



43,000 customers per day on average



We have many events open for application, with events held every month. Each event runs for one week (Monday to Sunday). You only trade for the days you want, there is no obligation to book the whole week. We do however require a $50 deposit for each event you apply for. This is taken off the cost of the event and is non refundable. If we can not accept your application (usually due to conflict of traders as we do not allow more than one of each category) we will refund the deposit back to you.


When making a leasing agreement, centres require that the person who makes the booking has a registered business with a current ABN. They also require adequate insurance to trade within shopping centres.

You can rest assured that Pop Ups SA is a registered and insured business which meets all the requirements and has the ability to sub lease to other businesses.
