They say it's the most wonderful time of the year - but if December 24th arrives and you're still striking out with holiday gifts, you might beg to differ.
Don't let yourself be one of those crazed, panicked shoppers who end up making rushed decisions because East End Pop Ups is providing you with one last chance to take advantage of one stop, stress-free holiday shopping during its 2nd Annual Holiday Market at the American Legion on Saturday, December 17th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"This is a curated Holiday Market - it's the second day of our 2nd annual Holiday Market," noted Bella Ornaf, East End Pop Ups Co-Founder and FIN Montauk owner. The first Holiday Market took place over Thanksgiving weekend and several vendors will return for East End Pop Ups' final Holiday Market of the season.
Participating artists and artisans include James Katsipis Photography, Art by a, FIN Montauk, Whalebone, Poolside Creative, Monbrewcha, Peter Spacek Fine Art, Ditch Ink, Girltauk, Chocology, Heart of Glass Handmade, Scott Bluedorn, Jules Sheehan, Destination Haus, Silverella, J.A.G.D. Jewels, Plan Bee, The Knot House, Hamptons Handpoured, Ann K, Live Free Naturals, Peconic Preserves, Hamptons Tote, Hooked Ltd., Southampton Soap Co. and a few other beloved East End-based businesses.
"With commercial rents in the Hamptons being what they are, 'East End Pop Ups' allows vendors such as myself the opportunity to showcase their work and connect with the community," noted Brittany Torres, owner of Hamptons Handpoured. "Amanda and Bella curate, in my opinion, some of the best companies and artisans of the East End. They do a great job of keeping the items diverse so every booth stands out."
The pop ups give exposure to both up-and-coming brands and more well known companies. "It is the perfect place to find emerging artists and small businesses with some well established brands thrown in as well," shared Torres. "It really is just the coolest market out here. Check everyone off your holiday gift list while supporting your local makers!"
