Following a successful holiday season, the Holiday Pop-Up Shop plans to keep the party going at 365 Grand Street. For the time being, anyway.

December brought together over sixty artists and independent designers, predominantly from the Lower East Side, into one collaborative space, in which conversations were sparked and creative connections were made over the course of the month.

From the mailbag:

We will continue to provide time for talks, demonstrations and workshops. We are showcasing fashion, home, art, lifestyle, food, books, painters, musicians, ceramicists, glass blowers, woodworkers, jewelers, beauty, greeting cards, knit goods, textiles, candles, soap, etc… Our mission is to create a festive beautiful collaborative space that facilitates conversation, good times and connections between LES creatives and the public.

The collective continues to add artists to their fold, and is currently on the prowl for more permanent digs in the neighborhood. We’ll keep you posted.

Revised hours for the post holiday push is Tuesday – Sunday, 10am to 6pm. More info here.
