The Pop-Up provides a hands-on, convenient
way for people to personalize their island
home with inspired art and furnishings.
Jennie says she sources from artisans and
brands that empower women, and buys only
from those who promote the fair treatment
“My husband and I are avid travelers when
we are not on the island,” she says. “One of
our favorite places is French Polynesia. It’s
where I fi nd original artwork and handcrafted
pieces. In my travels, I look for the highest
quality of arts that have an island aesthetic
and pair with the beautiful homes that are
being built on-island.”
Specializing in artwork, Jennie is currently
curating both contemporary and vintage
pieces. She says the most frequent comment
she hears from people about the Pop-Up is:
“That’s so cool!” or “What a great idea!”
“So many people have vacation homes,
but when they are on island they want to
spend time in their homes, not driving great
distances to shop. Pop-ups create a surprise,
plus the merchandise is constantly changing.
There is an element of casualness too, and
I love to tell stories about the pieces I fi nd.
Whether they were made by hand in Africa
or Australia, I love to tell a little bit about the
artist and their personal stories.”
