WILLIAMSBURG—Next Monday, furniture shop A&G Merch at 111 North 6th Street launches A&G Mart, a store-within-a-store featuring work by local artists. The pop-up sounds like a happy medium between a crafts fair and a high-end design store—not glutted with silk-screened bookmarks, but also not insanely expensive. [Racked Inbox]
NOLITA—Tomorrow's a holy day of sorts for people who like their footwear colorful, funky, and just a little bit odd. It's International Fluevog Day, aka Fluevog founder John Fluevog's birthday. To celebrate, he's taking 15% off all full-priced pairs through Sunday. Shoppers will also be treated to free champagne and cupcakes. [RackedWire]
