Christmas is fast approaching and seven local designers are getting ready for the sixth year of their annual holiday pop-up shop.

Christmas is fast approaching and seven local designers are getting ready for the sixth year of their annual holiday pop-up shop.

This sale started in the iconic brewery building and was a great success. Since then the girls have “popped” up at Bijou hair salon, Lilikoi and the Royal and this year they will be at The Nelson Trading Company — in a street-side location.

Their four-day long sale will be transformed into a one-stop holiday gift boutique. From November 27 to December 1 everyone is invited to stop by and see the local wares. This year the holiday sale will feature ceramics and jewelery from Kalika Bowlby, pillows, jewelery and terrariums by Clever Fawn, clothing and accessories by Dear Pony, fashions by Loo Loo and an assortment of card, prints, ornaments and one of a kind paintings by Marnie Christoffersen.

There will also be a wide assortment of other goodies from an array of very talented local artists, including edible delights from Epiphany Cakes.

Also, a raffle will be set up to raise money for the Nelson women’s center.

Everyone is encouraged to shop local and come by 402 Baker Street (the old Annie’s location) to enjoy some Christmas goodies, say hello to the artists and shop for the perfect Christmas gifts.

The display is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
