'Tis the Season for Pop-ups

For those who don't shop on Black Friday--out of principle or because they're too busy turning Thanksgiving leftovers into turkey chili--today may be the first day of the holiday shopping season. With that in mind, Gossips presents a list of some of the pop-up shops that have joined Hudson's regular lineup of unique shops and sources of wonderful gifts.

We'll start by the river, with the biggest pop-up shop of all: Basilica Farm & Flea. The weekend market, created in collaboration with Hudson River Exchange, opened yesterday and continues today and Sunday, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Heading up Warren Street, the Columbia County Council on the Arts, at 209 Warren Street, is having its annual Holiday Small Works Show, which is kind of a pop-up shop. Artworks smaller than 15 inches are on sale for $250 or less and "Small Gems" measuring less than 7 inches are priced at only $50 a piece. Click here for gallery hours.

Up the block at 217 Warren Street, FRG Objects & Design/Art is having a Gift Pop-up Shop--GPS: Design Destination. The shop features glass by Michael Archin, jewelry by Sheva Fruitman, lamps by Lyn Godley, candles and diffusers by Nabila K, ceramics by Kiara Matos, handmade leather by Jay Teske, kitchen tools by Joshua Vogel, tabouret by Shane Siever, paintings by Merrill Steiger, works on paper by Joseph Conrad-Ferm, and more. The shop is open Thursday through Mondays, from noon to 6 p.m., right up through Christmas Eve.

In the next block, at 314 Warren Street, Source Adage NYC is hosting a J. Hilburn trunk show, with the latest collection of men's wear, next Saturday from 3 to 9 p.m., during Winter Walk. A personal stylist from J. Hilburn will be on site to show how to fit clients for the made-to-measure suiting and custom made shirts.

Farther upstreet, on the 500 block of Warren Street, two pop-up shops offer the means to stay warm during the coming winter. At 535 Warren Street, Cashmere in Hudson makes its annual appearance. As in years past, this shop is selling luxurious cashmere hats, gloves, sweaters, and scarves for women and men, as well of wraps and throws. The shop is open daily from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. (until 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday) until January 2.

At 555 Warren Street, more warmth for the coming winter is on offer. The Spruce Ridge Farm pop-up shop is back, with yarn, sweaters, gloves, and many other products made with the fiber of the farm's alpacas and from fiber coops, as well as imported items. The alpaca pop-up is open daily from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.

If any pop-up shops have been overlooked in this list, please contact Gossips with information about them, and an addendum will cheerfully be published to remedy the oversight. There are 26 shopping days left until Christmas.
