If your tax refund wasn't quite big enough to put toward a trip to Latin America, you can at least grab a little slice of it this weekend. Rachel Horowitz, the founder behind Forma de Ser, is hosting a pop-up shop this weekend at 75 East 4th Street, where items from her travels to Nicaragua, Colombia, Panama, and the Dominican Republic will all be for sale.
The merchandise includes modestly priced jewelry and home goods, such as wooden bangles for $14 and ceramic vases starting at $26, as well as one-of-a-kind woven bucket bags for $126. Stop by 10am to 7pm on Saturday or Sunday, and bring your appetite: there will be complimentary Costa Rican coffee, Mexican pastries, and treats from artisanal chocolate producer Fábrica de Chocolate Momotombo.
