Melissa Tomlin and Sarah Roth, local style experts and founders of 914PopUps, are helping host two upcoming events to kick start your holiday shopping, so get ready to check a few items off your list.
Cross the Westchester border and head into Connecticut for 914PopUps’ Winter Wonderland shopping event at Chelsea Piers Stamford on Thursday, November 29.
Vendors will include Sophie’s Runway, Wyatt Lily, Laurie Berg, Gems By Christine, Custom Candle Co., Come Wine with Us, SAACHI, Nikita Fine Art, and CHAKAAR Artisan Jewelry, so you’ll be able to shop everything from clothing to shoes to home decor.
Attendees will receive a free one-day pass to the Chelsea Piers Athletic Club with access to the facilities including a sauna, steam room, and even babysitting. To top it off, a percentage of all boutique sales will go towards the Chelsea Piers Scholarship Fund, which provides underprivileged children in Fairfield County the chance to learn and develop through athletics. For some artistic flair, Westchester-based Antoinette Wysocki will be live painting throughout the event. The shopping boutique is from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is free.
Not sure what to buy for that special someone who has everything? On Tuesday, December 4, 914PopUps is hosting an event in collaboration with 1 Atelier Custom Handbags at Nordstrom in The Westchester. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the luxury brand will showcase its unique handcrafted purses and accessories. There will be about 20 model bags to choose from with the option to customize both hardware and fabrics. The handbags are made of natural skins and leathers including python, Nile crocodile, hair calf, suede, tumbled calfskin, and Nappa lambskin. Materials are sourced from suppliers in Italy, France, and the U.S. Fabrics come from the same mill as Chanel, and prices of the purses range from $400-$9000. Best of all, all orders placed at the popup will be delivered by December 24th — just in time to gift a handbag to a loved one, or even to yourself. As a bonus, Nordstrom cardholders will receive Nordstrom points with purchase.
