‘Tis the season for gifting for family, friends, coworkers, and of course, a little gift for yourself. Every December we head downtown to the Open Pop Up Shops to get a little something for everyone.

Open Pop Up Shops transforms vacant downtown properties into storefronts by filling them with local vendors. For the next two weekends you can shop craft greeting cards, colorful jewelry, handmade clothing from vendors like  Tattoos & Love Letters, Red Cat & Co, Barbacoapparel, Fiesta Feet, and more.

Parking and navigating downtown can be difficult which is why we’re super pumped that the OPEN Holiday Market is located all on one street! We parked at the Mac lot in front of Rosella at the Rand and made our way down E. Houston hitting both OPEN locations within five minutes.

Oh and don’t forget to hit up Red Cat & Co in front of the shops at 212 E. Houston. Inside this cozy bus is a plethora of temporary tattoos, vintage clothing and amazing candles.
