FORT GREENE—You're never too old to tell Santa what you want for Christmas—or at the very least, snap a selfie with him. Tomorrow at Jill Lindsey (370 Myrtle Avenue), you'll be able to meet the man in red, create your own ornaments, and peruse vendors like This Woman's Work and Izaskun Zabala jewelry during her all-day Holiday Bazaar. Stop by later in the day for tarot readings (4pm to 10pm) and free prosecco (3pm to 5pm).
CHELSEA—Whether you've been using every excuse to walk through Chelsea Market during the holidays or avoiding it like the plague, be sure to make an appearance this weekend between 10am and 8pm for the seventh annual Etsy Holiday Handmade Cavalcade. Meet the makers (all 62 of 'em) while shopping for gifts for your quirkiest friend, and if you're one of the first 100 shoppers, expect a congratulatory goody bag.
MIDTOWN—It's been 15 years since Deborah Lippmann founded her eponymous nail polish collection, and Barneys New York is celebrating with an exclusive collection for the department store, as well as the unveiling of the limited-edition Music Box. For a chance to meet Lippmann in store tomorrow between 1pm and 3pm, call (212) 833-2020 to schedule a personal consultation.
DUMBO—Head over to the Nos Boutique at 81 Front Street to meet Monica Botkier, the creative director of handbag line Botkier New York. Stop by on Sunday, December 14th between 2pm and 5pm for snacks, drinks, and a look at the holiday collection—plus, get a free gift with any Botkier purchase.
GREENPOINT—While we love all holiday pop-ups, our favorites always involve local and under-the-radar designers. Tomorrow and Sunday from noon to 7pm, head to Beautiful Dreamers (326 Wythe Avenue) to find deals on WWAKE, Peppercotton, Samma, Arielle de Pinto and more.
LOWER EAST SIDE—Give your wardrobe a Nordic flair at the Carl & Ebba pop-up shop inside The Dressing Room Boutique & Bar at 75A Orchard Street. From 2pm through 7pm on Saturday, the e-commerce site is offering women's clothing and accessories from indie Swedish and Danish designers that you can't find elsewhere in the US for up to 80% off retail prices, along with Scandinavian snacks—in case you get shopping munchies.
