The holidays are here! Yes, already. Anyway, to kick off the season of festivities, LES Pop-Up is bringing an “LES Holiday Pop-Up Shop” to the neighborhood. 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. Additionally, said artisans will schedule talks, demonstrations, and workshops for the interested public.

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.

The LES Holiday Pop-Up will be held at 365 Grand Street, which formerly housed Flowers on Essex. It runs from November 27 through December 24, operating on a Tuesday – Sunday schedule, 3:30 – 7:30pm. More info can be found here. Support local!
