This Sunday: Pop Up Shop at ArtsCetera! on Smith Street

On Sunday, November 7th, from 11am to 6 pm, ArtsCeteraʼs child-centric Cobble Hill studio will transform into a weekend storefront market for holiday shopping, featuring goods from a diverse group of local artisans and entrepreneurs.

Many of the designers who will be featured throughout the season come from the local Etsy community and The {NewNew}, a vibrant collective of indie Etsy artisans in the NY Metro area.

With handmade clothing for men, women and children, jewelry, accessories and items for the home and well-being, as well as books, CDs and gifts for kids, the Pop-Up Shop will run Saturdays and Sundays through December 19th. Each weekend will feature both new and returning vendors, so shoppers will always find something fresh to see at the Pop-Up Shop. Each weekendʼs line-up will be posted at ArtsCetera's website.

The opening includes refreshments, a child-friendly area so kids can play while parents shop and a raffle of gifts donated from our vendors to benefit ArtsCeteraʼs Neighborhood Arts Partner, The Early Childhood Programs of the Lutheran Family Health Centers.
