We're gonna be up front and honest here: We still haven't actually set foot in Project No.8's five-day-old holiday pop-up in Tribeca. It's only open Wednesdays to Sundays (noon to 7pm), and we stopped by on a Tuesday. That said, it's so small we still feel like we still managed to see all of it from the Duane Street sidewalk. We're not exaggerating: It's comparable in size to the walk-in-closet in a late-20th century McMansion's master bedroom (or the second, smaller bedroom in an $1900-a-month East Village walk-up).
It's cute, though: A rack of chic print dresses; a bank of floating white shelves laden with gift books, Margiela shoe boxes, chunky jewelry and fine leather bags; plus a case of baubles and wallets. Our favorites: The window full of adorable knit pigeons (they're alpaca!) feeding on a pile of sunshine yellow hard candies—useless but joyous!
