The South Orange Village Center Holiday Pop N’ Shop is a success.
The temporary store at 55 South Orange Avenue features the wares of more than 40 local crafters, artisans and artists and it raked in more than $10,000 in sales in its inaugural weekend.
“We outpaced last year’s numbers for 3 of the 4 days, with the exception being, of course, Saturday because of the snow,” said Bob Zuckerman of the South Orange Village Center Alliance. “Pop ‘n Shop is off to a great start and we anticipate continued strong sales this week [Dec. 14-17] and on our two bonus days, Dec. 22 and 23.”
Pop ‘n Shop features finely crafted jewelry, apparel, body products, accessories, art and other unique gift items made by many of our area’s finest local artisans and craftspeople (watch the video below to get a sampling!).
Remaining store dates are from Thursday, December 14 through Sunday, December 17; Friday December 22 and Saturday, December 23; each day from 12 PM – 8 PM.
The store is located at 55 South Orange Avenue, between Vose Avenue and Scotland Road.
