THE POPUP! Monaro Arts Space has closed after three months of trading with manager Ros Hales citing a lack of financial support for the venture.
Ms Hales said although support was initially strong, sporadic sales were not enough to keep the arts space afloat.
The shop opened late last year and had its final day of trading on Saturday, March 16.
"We were very well-supported in December but that seemed to slow down during January and February which is a notoriously quiet time for retail.
"It hasn't picked up since then," she said.
"We didn't have enough regular sales. I was hoping for more support from local artists as well as the community in general."
The space was originally intended to be run as a co-op with seven individual sections available on a monthly lease.
However, as time progressed Ms Hales said the project was costing too much of her own personal time and money.
"I'm sad and disappointed to see the end. The way the pop up shop was run it was always a short term thing as we ran on a month by month basis," she said.
"But that's not the reason we've ended. It was costing me personally too much money, we did have cheap rent but there are still a lot of overheads."
"There are a lot of disappointed people, they said 'well done, gave it a go'. We gave it our best possible shot," she said.
"Queanbeyan people love it, we've had a lot of positive comments like 'We've needed this, it's a beautiful space' but they don't want to spend money so that's basically the reason we've had to close."
The PopUp! Monaro Arts Space hosted two major art exhibitions by Neil Lade and Aria Stone, displayed locally made guitars, four jewellers as well as selling textile ottomans, collectable, fresh flowers and greeting cards.
Given the temporary nature of a pop up shop, is there a chance it may appear once again?
"Never say never," Ms Hales said. "Who knows what will happen. It may pop back up, it may not."
