Narwhal woodcuts, 3D-printed jewelry and customized panels to organize your records.
That’s just a taste of what you can get at NextFab’s holiday pop-up shop. For the month of December, NextFab transformed the old Springboard Media space at 2212 Walnut St. The shop features products made at the Washington Avenue makerspace or by those affiliated with it.
It’s open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Dec. 18-24.
NextFab owner Evan Malone bought 2212 Walnut St. in 2009 as a space for NextFab but opted for the University City Science Center space when the opportunity arose, he said via email. The facade and interior floor structure were rebuilt by famous Art Deco architect Ralph Bencker in 1928, Malone said, calling it “a beautiful, iconic building in desperate need of restoration.”
It’s been vacant since Springboard left and Malone aims to get it on the rental market in early 2015, after the final renovations are complete.
These are a few of our favorites from the pop-up shop.
