Thanksgiving is tomorrow, which means one thing and one thing only for anyone who shops for a living—Black Friday and its attendant deals are approximately 48 hours away. In the spirit of the season, plenty of brands, on and off the radar, have pulled together pop-up shops and deal-and-steal sales. Read on for our roundup of the must-shop stops popping up this week (and beyond).
David Stark and STORY
Bright lights, big top: David Stark tells EAL of the design behind the pop-up STORY, which was inspired by the forthcoming film about P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman: “What is a circus without a tent, right!? When guests walk into STORY, a fantastical, draped ceiling of gold fabric, colorful bunting and strings of glowing lights immediately transport them to the the big top! The backdrop of the space is a marquee wall of hundreds of light bulbs and the silhouette of our ringmaster stands proudly in front of it. The combination of this back wall and the tented ceiling create a wow moment for guests first entering the space, and it’s even visible from the High Line! This is perhaps my personal ‘hero’ moment.” His favorite items? The handcrafted, feather Brackish Bowties, glitter zip clutches by Julie Mollo!, and an assortment of Nadia Dafri woven necklaces. 144 Tenth Avenue, New York
In advance of the holidays, and incoming Art Basel, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop brand is popping up in Miami with a temporary seasonal shop offering skin care, home wares, clothing, accessories and jewelry.

The online retailer of 100 percent ethically sourced and American-made home decor and women’s apparel is going brick-and-mortar for the holidays. The temporary shop, located in downtown Manhattan, will run through January.
“Our messaging and concept can also be fully realized in this pop-up shop, where we can have live conversations with our customers to hear the story straight from the source,” shares Bishop Collective co-founder Dimitri Koumbis.
“Consumers don’t always realize the ugly side of manufacturing,” he continues. “Knowing they can come into a space of beautifully curated items, at all price levels, that also support humane labor practices and domestic businesses—we believe that everyone will embrace the concept and stand behind the practice of being a mindful consumer.” 224 Mulberry Street, New York
