LES Popped, the Grand Street pop-up shop that showcases local goods and talents from neighborhood creatives is coming to a close … well, for the time being anyway.  The current iteration is wrapping up on April 30.

If you’ll recall, this past December brought over sixty neighborhood artists and independent designers, together into one space, in which conversations were sparked and creative connections were made over the course of the month. The pop-up then kept the party going for another four months at 365 Grand.

As for future of this local collaborative? From the mailbag:

We are definitely interested in being a permanent brick & mortar but need to work on our processes and also raise some capital before we can sign a long term lease. We plan to continue to serve our artists and customers in the immediate future while we figure things out.

Regardless, LES Popped is going out with a bang, hosting a bunch of events (including burlesque on Sunday with “some very sexy women!”) to commemorate its send off. A self-proclaimed “last hurrah.”
