Pop up shops exist for just about anyone today: Whether you’re a cynical Scrooge or a jolly Santa, you’ll find everything from a Jingle Hell to a reindeer lounge in Brooklyn (224 Franklin St).

This reindeer lounge is for those who love holiday cheer. It features four grand fireplaces, floor to ceiling Christmas trees, a Candy Cane wall and a festive drink menu.

3. Amazon’s 4-star store (72 Spring St)

Amazon’s 4-star store is unique and inspiring for the digital natives that can’t seem to get enough of that online experience. It’s a physical store that, according to, “feels like a website.” Items are grouped by “Most-Wished-For,” “Highly Rated,” and “Frequently Bought Together.”

4. Random Acts of Creativity (RAC) pop up (138 Wooster)

The creators behind this pop-up want to change the way we shop into a more interactive and global experience, thus creating a lifestyle. The community features one-of-a-kind pieces from around the world: fashion, accessories, art, household. You can expect to find handcrafted silk pillows from Vietnam, shawls from Peru, and custom-made furniture from artisans in the Catskills.
