A new retail experience blossoms this spring with the Mociun pop-up shop, open for the month of May. The shop features the Mociun spring 2011 collection, their full jewelry line, yardage of fabric from previous seasons (can you say D.I.Y.?), and other ethnic-minimalist "odds and ends." Alongside the line are 17 additional designers featuring their wares, like architectural Bodkin separates, whimsical knitwear by Lauren Manoogian, and ceramic decor by Shino Takeda. The wooden, Christmas light-strewn interior gives the aura of a secret hideout, while the goods emit the feel of a chic flea market of undiscovered gems. Stop by to satisfy all your spring gift shopping requirements (and pick up a bangle for yourself while you're at it).
Mociun Pop-Up Shop, 200 Livington Street (between Smith and Hoyt streets); Brooklyn. Open Wednesday to Sunday from noon to 7 p.m., May 1 to May 31; 718-555-5555.
