XMAS in New York City can be fabulous, festival and fun. There is a tons of Pop-up Shops introducing you to tons of new brands. The one on Prince Street has been going for a few years. It’s full of local purveyors selling delicious delights which you can buy there or later!
Here are some of the Best Bits I found.
TITIANIA INGLIS (clothing designer)
STUDY – TARA ST. JAMES (designer)
Located on the second floor of the pop-up shop, make sure you look out for these two – they are not hard to find as their clothes shine….
MARYSIA SWIM (designer)
Marysia’s swimwear is really gorgeous. Love her white cotton cover up…looks like the 1940’s.
ETWAS (belts and bags)
They make simple belts but they punch the belt holes there: what a chic gift to give your beau – a belt with only one hole…his.
DENA PENGAS (jewelry)
Love her take on crossword puzzle pieces as jewelry!
CITY GRIT (food)
City Grit is selling some home-cooked goodies at the Pop-Up store but check out their future schedule. They bring in famous US chefs to cook at their space downtown. Wish I were in NY on January 18 for Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q!
MORRIS KITCHEN (food)
Bought their Boiled Apple Cider Syrup…to make this the following drink.
Bourbon Apple Smash (serves 1)
2 oz bourbon
1 oz Morris Kitchen Boiled Apple Cider Syrup
1 oz seltzer
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, then drain into a martini glass. Top off with seltzer and and garnish with a lemon twist or apple slice.
