Poundcake NYC isn't nearly as saccharine as the name implies. The traveling flea market has kindly hand-delivered the best of Brooklyn-based designers to Elizabeth Street, including jewelry from the likes of Regina Kim, Dirty Librarians and Justin Gignac. If you're looking for sweet, best to head to neighboring Little Cupcake Bakeshop on Prince; if you're looking for brass knuckles by Gignac, "Badass" nameplates from Father Panik Industries (their word, not ours) or raunchy candy bars from Fine & Raw, then you've come to the right place.
The pop-up shop opened in December and will hang around until February 28th—after that, it'll pack up its things and head back to Brooklyn, where scheduled to open up somewhere in Williamsburg this spring. Until then, check out the changing photo exhibits (closing this week is Peter Beste's "Houston Rap" series, which has been setting the mood with gritty street shots and video-vixen T&A) and all of the finely crafted collections before they hit the road once more.—Tiffany Yannetta
