The Target To-Go holiday pop-up shop in Mint Plaza is officially in full swing. The "store" opened to the public at 10 a.m. this morning and hoardes of bullseye-loving cityslickers are already pouring in. The concept, which we blogged about earlier this week on Domain, is simple—a range of products behind glass cases that brings the idea of window shopping to life. You grab a clipboard with purchase form and then check off the numbered items you would like to buy before heading to checkout. Your items then come to you via "conveyer belt," in the form of neatly packaged presents already wrapped and ready to take their spot under your tree. It's all very Santa's workshop.
'Tis the season of the pop-up shop! We've already seen a few around town for the holidays, but right now we're most excited about the soon-to-launch collaboration between local design boutique Rare Device and Poketo, a lifestyle brand based out of LA. Poketo will take over the gallery space at Rare Device from December 4th through January 26th, giving you ample time to pick up the brand's accessories, apparel, and homeware all featuring original artwork from an international array of artists. Their limited edition wallets make good stocking stuffers, while any one of their selection of prints might be just the thing for under the tree.
Last week’s opening night for Edun’s Pop-Up Shop at Clary Sage Organics in Pacific Heights was a huge success - the store was filled to the brim with Bay Area fashion aficionados sipping on wine and sampling eco-conscious skin care products while taking turns trying on Edun’s new Spring Line.
Important notice for procrastinators everywhere: There's officially no excuse to buy a lame present this year. Starting today and for the remainder of the holiday season, the good folks from CITIZEN:citizen have put together a pop-up department store in the Upper Fillmore, offering chic fashion and quality design goods at warehouse prices.
