Come December, New York City comes alive with holiday spirit: We're talkin' twinkle lights, elaborate window displays, and an amazing selection of markets. The best part of these pop-up shops? They offer a selection of unique items from local vendors. And, don't you think that Aunt Sally really needs to experience the magic of a cronut?
The only problem is there's so much to see, but just a few short weeks to really take it all in. So, we went ahead and did all the research for you. We've compiled the a list of best pop-ups for tech, food, jewelry, you name it. And, for a magical mix of all of those things, don't forget to check out R29's own Tinseltown bazaar this month. Ahead, the eight holiday shops you cannot miss this season. Your life just got a little bit easier — and a lot more festive.
