A popup Santa Photo Shop is coming to Edmonds this holiday season. Gather the family and avoid the lines at the mall. Competitively priced print and digital photo packages are available.

Located at 111 4th Ave. N. (next to the Churchkey Pub), Santa’s first day on the job is Saturday, Nov. 29 starting at noon. His appearance in Edmonds coincides with traditions, new and old – including the city’s annual Tree Lighting.

Coordinated by the owners of Rogue Boutique and Walnut Street Coffee, the popup shop will be open all weekends in December, Saturday noon-6 p.m. and Sunday noon-5 p.m. All profits from the purchase of photos will be donated to the Edmonds Food Bank.

“Come sign up for a photo time slot and then wander town. We are excited to help families avoid a day of waiting in line with fidgety kids” said Kimberly Koenig, owner of Rogue on Main Street.

In addition to the popup shop, Stuller and Koenig are responsible for bringing some cheer to the corner of 4th and Main. The window painting helps liven the busy intersection.

“We really wanted to activate empty storefronts in town and provide another reason for folks to enjoy all the great shops and festivities in Edmonds, said Stuller, who owns Walnut Street Coffee.

Stuller and Koenig also wanted to extend a big thanks to the Mayo Family for donating the space for November and December, and Jennifer Inman at IE Design & Stage.

“We couldn’t have made this happen without the generosity of these two”, Stuller said. “Jennifer’s helped transform the space into something special. We anticipate a robust turnout and are excited to see how much we can raise for the Edmonds Food Bank.”

To top if off, look for Santa’s Mailbox outside Santa’s Photo Shop. All letters will be delivered to the North Pole in time for the holiday.
