Gypsy Junque, the bohemian boutique housed in a handicap-accessible school bus, has been rolling around the bay area for a few years now. The colorful bus full of hippie-chic clothing and accessories, mostly made by owner Elke Lockert, is hard to miss, with its groovy exterior painted by muralist Derek Donnelly. Now they've freshened up the interior with a complete renovation, and they're having a reveal party Friday to celebrate. The party is held at COVE, Donnelly's art studio and gallery, where he'll be touching up the exterior of the bus. The party's very on-brand, with tarot card readings from Tarot and Stars, fire and hoop performances, live music and a flower power punch (you can also BYOB). There will be a 20 percent discount on all purchases and the first 25 attendees will receive a special surprise. Friday's event happens from 6-11 p.m. at 5705 Park Blvd. N, Pinellas Park. Don't worry, Tampa peeps; they'll have another reveal party at Red Star Rock Bar (5210 N Florida Ave.) on July 13.

There's plenty of plant and garden sales every week — because Florida — but this one has more of an indie market feel to it. The Plant Pop Up Market, presented by O'Berry's Succulents, happens 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday at Station House in downtown St. Pete. Along with a number of plant vendors, there will also be a selection of plant-based goods and medicinal herbs. Here's a cool thing: Bring 5 plant clippings to participate in the clipping exchange from noon-1 p.m. If you're feeling brunch-y, Ichicoro Ane, the restaurant at Station House, will have brunch specials and plant-based cocktails. 260 First Ave. S.
