MIDTOWN—Through tomorrow, the Felissimo Design House hosts a pop-up shop with items from its Japan Brand exhibit. Find "home accessories, stationery, textiles, beautiful fashion pieces, lacquer ware products and more with retail starting as low as $7.50 for AWAJI incense" (per the press release), all from Japan and all available in the United States for the first time. The pop-up runs till 6pm tomorrow at 10 West 56th Street. [Racked Inbox]

GOWANUS—The Brooklyn Yard plays host to a massive swap tomorrow from 11am-6pm. You bring your unwanted stuff (clothing, records, tchotchkes, whatever) and their team of experts divides it up into categories and then...gives it away. Whatever's leftover at the end goes to an anti-poverty group. Oh, and did we mention admission is free? [Brooklyn Yard]
