Pop Shop San Antonio

When: Sat., Nov. 25, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 2017

Billed as "a modern and stylish DIY world," Houston-based Pop Shop America combines a brick-and- mortar boutique specializing in handmade goods, an online shop and blog, crafty workshops, and seasonal markets that bring together like-minded vendors in a festive atmosphere. Founded by lifelong maker Brittany Bly, the multitasking operation makes its Alamo City debut via Pop Shop San Antonio — an indoor marketplace promising "Handmade. Vintage. Fair Trade. Good Vibes." Taking over the La Villita Assembly Hall on Small Business Saturday, the free, one-day- only affair features giftable wares from more than 50 vendors and businesses (including fashions from Retro Dynamite, "intoxicating bodycare" from Aromaholic, plus-size vintage styles from Massive Curves, cards, stickers and stationery from Tattoos&LoveLetters, natural skincare and aromatherapy from DarNaturals, imported kids' clothes and toys from French Carousel), plus goodie bags for the first 25 attendees, free coffee and lattes courtesy of Etsy (10am-2pm), complimentary "bling a nail"nail art by Cha Cha Covers (noon-4pm), a performance by married, multimedia duo Daisy & Buck (4pm), cocktails from Cowgirls Unlimited, a Bubble & Squeak Soapworks beauty bar, hands-on crafting activities and a "selfie station" with holiday props.
