Your Guide to the Midtown Pop-Up Shop

Well, here we are again... Black Friday. To help ease your burden—and get you swiftly back to life’s more noble pursuits—we’ve compiled five essential pit stops for next week’s inaugural Midtown Pop-Up Shop, where hundreds of vendors are peddling their holiday wares. Don’t worry, we also found you a little soiree.

Winter Gear, Live Music and Bourbon
BILLY REID

Winter Gear, Live Music and Bourbon

You’ll want to kick things off in the Billy Reid camp. Partly for the checked popovers and hopsack navy blazers, but mostly because they’ll be having a little get-together on Thursday night with live music and gratis bourbon until 9. From now on, this is how you shop.

Billy Reid, Dec 2-4, 10am-8pm, Dec 5, 10am-7pm, 999 Peachtree St

Gifting, Rag & Bone Style
LES NOUVELLES

Gifting, Rag & Bone Style

Bourbon: check. New blazer: check. Gift for that certain brunette in your life: not check. Now might be a good time to head over to the Les Nouvelles shop, where they’ll be slinging Everest boots and Penfield jackets from Rag & Bone’s women’s collection. Okay, now you can get back to the party.

Les Nouvelles, Dec 2-4, 10am-8pm, Dec 5, 10am-7pm, 999 Peachtree St

Old-Hunting Begins and Ends Here
LOVE TRAIN ANTIQUES

Old-Hunting Begins and Ends Here

Antiquing. Not necessarily top of your holiday to-do list. But next weekend, for the first time ever, Love Train Antiques is dropping its “trade-only” mantra and unleashing its rare collection of Belgian, French and Swedish oddities (think French leather club chairs, Belgian oak farm tables) for your perusal. And self-gifting.

Body Butter, Honey and Your Date
SAVANNAH BEE COMPANY

Body Butter, Honey and Your Date

Ah, Savannah. Historic mansions on the square, trees dripping with Spanish moss... girls named Daisy. Also, honey (apparently). Savannah Bee Company will be setting up shop with all manner of silky, honey-infused products that you’ll be happy to be on the… receiving end of (we’re looking at you, Royal Jelly Body Butter). Use your imagination.

Stone Ground Chocolate from Nashville
OLIVE & SINCLAIR CHOCOLATE CO.

Stone Ground Chocolate from Nashville

And you’ll want to cap off your bourbon-soaked, honey-dripped weekend at Olive & Sinclair, the Nashville-based chocolate gurus who’ll be doling out all manner of aphrodisia like sea salt chocolate, Mexican-style cinnamon and chili chocolate and buttermilk white chocolate all weekend. Again, we’re here to help.
