We are popin’ in London with Janet’s List
We are excited to take part in Janet’s list Pop up Shop in London. Nestled in a purple corner shop in trendy Shoreditch, Janet’s List is bringing a selection of her highly curated brands to the heart of London.
The same way, we at Ayok’a strive for diversity in the art world, Janet’s List fight for diversity in the business world. The platform is borne out of Janet’s desire to reduce the isolation of black women entrepreneurs and help them connect to their customers.
Janet collaborates with brands that have inspiring stories to tell, are active in building a community to support their missions and strive to offer the best products and customer service in their niche. So we find ourselves in good company alongside 11 other female-owned brands.

The lovely Janet Oganah, founder of Janet's List
For this first pop-up, Janet wanted a “convenient London location where people can come and support women of colors and not have to travel miles out”. It also means, “that other people who would never have the chance to interact with brands like this do.”
We are biased – but the shop does offer a truly unique Christmas shopping experience, with a wide variety of design-led gifts, ranging from fashion, accessories, hair, and beauty, stationery and of course art and decor. All the products come at budget-friendly prices with an unmissable contemporary African feel.
You will find there a selection of our bold and vibrant mobile phone cases, a subtle invitation to stay true to yourself and shine. A series of Ayok’a dazzling art prints are also on hand ready to go to and adorn new homes.
This festive season, this shop is an opportunity to step away from the high street beaten tracks and immerse yourself in a small treasure trove of unique gifts. You are bound to find something that will please, surprise and amaze your friends. You will also be supporting some gutsy women and advancing their entrepreneurial dreams.
Get ready to receive a very warm welcome, and taste some spicy dips that will tickle your taste buds and depending on the strength, temporarily keep winter at bay.
Janet’s List Pop Up Shop is open every day from 11am to 7pm, until Dec 16.
