Better Than a PSL: Four Fall Pop Ups in NYC

Summer is coming to an end, and autumn will be arriving soon. Gone are the days of sunburns, beaches, and pool parties. The season of cooler weather, colorful leaves, first days of school, and pumpkin spice-flavored everything draws near.

To get you in the spirit, we’ve curated a list of our top picks for this year’s Fall-themed Pop Ups from years past:

P.S. If you haven’t checked out our recent Pop Up series, we encourage you to explore our top summer-themed Pop Ups, beauty Pop Ups, and LGBTQ+ Pop Ups catalogs.

Parasol Projects @ 173 Elizabeth Street from November 5 – December 27, 2021

Say hello to Brightland’s first-ever Pop-Up shop. In 2021, we hosted this charming, picturesque brand in one of our Nolita locations. Bright oranges, yellows, rich dark browns, and crisp, warm autumn tones filled its interior. Its cozy, farmhouse-like atmosphere further reinforced the Thanksgiving and harvest season vibes.

If extra virgin and flavor-infused olive oils, fruity vinegar, and Californian and Hawaiian honeys are your things, you will enjoy Brightland’s products. Each item is created using locally and responsibly-sourced ingredients, bringing fresh culinary goods from family-run farms to NYC. Everything you need to live well in a ‘golden state.’

Casa Beyt

In 2017, Casa Beyt launched its first Pop Up event and textile workshop from September 19 – 24 for Li Edelkoort’s New York Textile Month. This exhibition featured home decor made by Middle Eastern and Central American artisans.

The name “Casa Beyt” refers to the exhibition’s cross-cultural nature. Casa is the Spanish word for “home,” and ‘beyt’ is its Arabic equivalent. Together, they embody the intersection between two cultures, heritages, and ways of life within the universal concept of home.

While Casa Beyt was live, visitors could browse through a collection of Oaxacan alpaca pillows; Egyptian kilim rugs; silk-embroidered pillows from Lebanon; Guatemalan hand-painted ceramic plates; and more made from metal and recycled plastics. Some of the embroideries were stitched by refugee women living in Lebanon. The sales’ proceeds were returned to these craftspeople and donated to NGOs.
