Holiday Pop-Up Shops

Save yourself from Black Friday shopping shame spirals! Today, I want to get some fresh air and support my local shops and artists instead. One of our stationery artists Mike Perry is hosting a pop-up shop in his Brooklyn studio starting tomorrow. Since we know first-hand the excitement that buzzes around a pop-up shop (we have two of our own right now – we’re set up at Zinc Details on Fillmore Street through the holidays and just moved temporarily from the Metreon to Westfield San Francisco Centre), it sounds like the type of unique shopping experience we love to support.

Mike is transforming his studio, which usually looks like this, into a galley and shop. You’ll find prints, zines, books, T-shirts, original drawings, and more from Justin Fines, Sonnenzimmer, Josh Cochran, Jim Stoten, Luke Ramsey, Jim Datz, and many more.

If you’re in New York check it out. And if you’re here in the Bay Area, come shop with us at Zinc Details and the mall. If you’re everywhere inbetween, hop online to take advantage of the Friends & Family sale we have going on right now: get 35% off plus free ground shipping by entering FRIENDS when you check out at through December 5th.

Mike Perry Pop-Up Shop
November 27th – December 1st
10:00 am – 5:00 pm
925 Bergen Street, Suite 308 (btwn. Franklin and Classon), Brooklyn

      Hi Edyta. Our designer tells me that twine is from Bell'Ochio. It's a BEAUTIFUL shop with lots of pretty notions. They have an online shop (, but you should try to go see them in person because it's such a lovely store with treasures you never knew you needed. It's tucked away on Brady – a small street off Market. ENJOY, and happy holidays! – Kate
