There’s more to starting a new business under the Danforth East Community Association’s “Pop Up Shop” program than just finding a space and a tenant. The new venue often has sat vacant for some time and needs a lot of work to make it presentable, while the fledgling businesses setting up shop don’t have funds to pay for renovations.

But DECA volunteers are there to help get the ball rolling. Here Tina Scherz, Catherine Pekelny, Gay Stephenson, Taryn Pimento and Margot Foster display the tools of the trade that they used to such fine effect in transforming the space at 1765 Danforth Ave.
