A made-in-Baltimore holiday "pop-up shop" will open Friday at the Women's Exchange in Baltimore's Mount Vernon neighborhood, featuring merchandise made by more than 90 city-based businesses.
The idea is to promote buying locally in the city and highlight Baltimore's diverse maker industries, said The Industrial Arts Collective, an alliance of makerspaces, craft manufacturers and education initiatives.
The shop will sell clothing, furniture, accessories, housewares, food and other products.
The "Holiday Delights" shop, at 333 N. Charles Street, will be open Fridays from 4 p.m to 7 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Friday through Dec. 27. The shop also plans to open for the A Monumental Occasion monument lighting on Dec. 3 from 4 p.m to 8 p.m.
The Women's Exchange dates to the Civil War and is one of the city's oldest operating retail venues.
