OCIN presents the 3rd annual holiday pop up experience – The Break Room

Our annual holiday pop-up, The Break Room, is back December 10-12 and we can’t wait to connect again in person. The Break Room is a space that was created to promote rest, mindfulness, community, and connection; an immersive event that’s carried over the course of three days to allow you the opportunity to shop from local friends of our collective that we admire. 

In addition to curating a selection of beautiful brands and creators, we also host calming, thoughtful, and restorative experiences throughout the weekend to complement the vision of inspiring rest and connection during this busy holiday season. 


This year, we are incredibly grateful to be partnering with 'Arcade Showroom' – Lock and Mortice and Matthew McCormick’s beautiful new showroom in Gastown in ‘Vancouver’ -- on the unceded and traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh nations.

We invite you to find time to come take a break with us. See below for programming and The Break Room hours and click here to pre-order your snack sets and purchase event tickets.
