Whether you’re a hip-hop aficionado looking for a reason to day drink or a dance devotee looking for a reason to night shop, these two holiday markets have you covered.
Ibiza Love Child Pop-Up Weekender+ Nov. 28 to Dec. 3 and Dec. 14 to Dec. 25, from 4pm to midnight at Ibiza Love Child, 29 Wythe Ave., Williamsburg
While it ramps up for a grand opening in February, Ibiza Love Child has been doing pop-ups at Verboten while quietly operating by appointment only on other days. But starting Black Friday, designer Mary Wagman will invite holiday shoppers into her 2,500-square-foot warehouse – a “warm, yummy environment,” she assures us – so they can check out her private line as well as the funky duds she imports from that party mecca of Ibiza.

Because 10 holiday markets just aren’t enough when you’re looking for every last excuse to hole up indoors, here are a couple more orgies of crass consumerism to add to your calendar.
Roberta’s Holiday Market Dec. 12 from 5-10pm and Dec. 13 from noon-6pm, 261 Moore St., Brooklyn
On the latest episode of Roberta’s Radio, the restaurant’s co-owner Brandon Hoy explained why he wasn’t participating in SantaCon, which will occur (hopefully not in Bushwick) on the same day as the annual holiday market: “The last thing I want is a bunch of drunk Santas vomitting on somebody’s handcrafted jewelry or soap.” In addition to the vom-free soap, there’ll be vintage items, greeting cards, ceramics and home goods from local vendors. Plus, food! More →
With nesting season officially upon us (triple ugh), the opening of a new home design store in Greenpoint couldn’t be better timed. On Sunday, the husband and wife behind Franklin Street clothing boutique Wolves Within will open a sister store just a few doors down – namely, the first permanent location of Home of the Brave, the home-furnishings pop-up they operated on West Street for a few months earlier this year.

As if all the holiday markets weren’t enough, these pop-ups and sample sales are still more reason to fill yr shopping bag with locally made chicness.
Carleen Pop-Up at Erica Weiner Nov. 21 to Jan. 1 at Erica Weiner, 360 Atlantic Ave., Boerum Hill; 718-855-2555
A B+B favorite, Bushwick-based Kelsy Parkhouse, is debuting her Carleen line’s Fall 2014 collection via a pop-up inside of Erica Weiner’s Boerum Hill shop. Look for a “Weiner”-ized version of Carleen’s “Utopia” sweatshirt and outerwear incorporating vintage quilts. More →
The holidays seem to come earlier and earlier every year (yesterday, a reader sent us this photo of decorations going up on the Lower East Side) but that’s just fine with us. Tis the season to get some sweet shopping done at these local holiday markets. More →
Despite going to the trouble of making a super Brooklyn-y promo video, the market that had hoped to bring Brooklyn makers to Soho during the holiday season has decided to delay its launch. BrooklynXchange posted the following message, informing followers that it was “unable to curate a full compliment of traders that reflect the values of what the BrooklynXchange is to be.” More →
