Holiday pop-up shops are appearing everywhere these days, but at Gilman Village in Berkeley on the corner of 10th & Gilman streets, you can get fed while snagging gifts. From now until December 24th, you can get goodies from chic home boutique Trove, handcrafted haven Ethnic Arts, Show Place Art, and the special Gilman Village Pop-Up Shop, plus cocktails and delicious snacks from T-Rex BBQ like barbecued oysters, ribs, deviled eggs and hand cut fries.
Feel like taking a drive this weekend? If so, we've got just the destination for any bargain hunters out there. Why not head across the Bay to Berkeley for Trove's first mega annex sale? The home outlet boutique is known for having an incredible selection of designer goods (think John Robshaw, local artists like Rae Dunn, and many others) at discounted prices, but starting Friday, October 9th, they'll be taking the markdowns to a new level. Items in store will be marked off up to 80%, and there's so much discounted furniture that they're moving into the former Travelsmith location a few doors down to hold all the excess.
