Pop-up shops are, well, popping up all around the county, just in time for the holidays. If you’ve been putting off purchasing your gifts this season (or just want to pick up some special stocking stuffers), we’ve rounded up several local shops to stop by if you’re looking for some last-minute gifts.
A ballet flat brand specializing in made-to-measure orders, Margaux is opening an extended pop-up shop in Palm Beach that will be open until the end of April. Guests can drop by the 600 square-foot space in Via Mizner (off of Worth Avenue) for shopping and fittings, and there will also be an outdoor courtyard available for special events. If you’re looking for some new shoes, stop in to view the latest collections and browse all color and fit options.
Pretty and elegant, Margaux’s signature ballerina flats come in both solid colors and fun prints, tailored just for your (or your gift recipient’s!) feet. The store will be offering the latest collection, including The Classic, The Pointe, The Demi, and The Cashmere styles (standard sizing $125+) as well as a specialist to fit you for the custom, made-to-measure styles (The Classic and The Pointe, $215-$275).
If you’re looking for a unique home accessory, be sure to stop by Madeline Weinrib‘s pop-up shop at Mecox West Palm Beach. The designer, also an established painter, has taken inspiration from her travels and from craft traditions from all over the world to shape her signature, sophisticated style that is both timeless and contemporary.
Her pop-up shop will feature a variety of picks from her unique collections, ranging from home furnishings to accessories including napkins, toiletry bags, trays, pillows, clutches, kaftans, lanterns, and vintage furniture. Each piece showcases Weinrib’s unique aesthetic of painterly ideals translated over to warp and weft, from her monochromatic cosmetic bags splashed with zigzag patterns to her pretty floral-print pillows.

Love Well Baking Co.
Too busy to bake for the holidays? Local baker Anna Kae, who recently launched her first pop-up pie shop for Thanksgiving, is here to help. Kae is taking pie orders through Christmas, so if you want all the taste of homemade confections without baking them yourself, be sure to place an order for some delicious treats.
Spiced Pear and Apple Pie with Sage Crust
Kae’s current seasonal flavors include:
- Cranberry Apple Sage
- Dark Chocolate Pecan
- Spiked Eggnog Custard
- Salted Caramel Apple Crumble
- Salty Honey Pie (custard with a flavor reminiscent of Creme Brulee)
Pies cost $35 and serve 8-10 people. Customers can place their orders through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or at Kae’s website here and then swing by the Social House in Lake Worth or The Seed in Boca Raton to pick their pies up.
The holiday season just isn’t complete without some creamy chocolate, so if you’re looking for some scrumptious stocking stuffers, make sure to stop by See’s Candies pop-up shop in The Garden Mall for some tasty treats. Along with free samples, the shop is offering a variety of their favorite confections including its famous peanut brittle, chocolate truffles, cinnamon lollypops, toffee-ettes, and more.
Our recommendations? If you’re looking for a gift large enough to share, try the Wreath Keepsake Tin ($25.50), filled with a mouthwatering assortment of 22 nuts, caramels, soft centers, and more, including two seasonal eggnog truffles decorated with candy holly. Don’t need quite so many? The shop’s Mini Sweets Delight set ($10.15) offers six pieces of milk and dark chocolate including divinity, dark nougat, and a special milk chocolate butter topped with a candy poinsettia. And finally, if you’re looking for the perfect stocking stuffer, the Sweet Stocking Box ($7.60) offers a variety of sugar sticks, solid milk chocolate balls, chocolate Santas, and long-lasting lollypops.
