Its niche lies in products created and designed by local artists and designers; the intention is to serve and support the community while sustaining artists and creative folk in the immediate area.

Per the press release:

We are showcasing fashion, home, art, lifestyle, food, writers, painters, musician, ceramicists, glass blowers, furniture makers, jewelers, beauty, holiday cards, paper goods, knit goods, textiles, soap makers, etc … Our mission is to create a festive beautiful collaborative space that facilitates conversation, good times and connections between LES creatives and the public.

Those who want to include their goods in the pop-up should know that it’s free, and admissions are open and rolling; anyone with a strong connection to the LES (lives/works/school) in the hood is welcome to apply.
