Just in time for the holidays Jessica Frandson, founder of Inkwells Paperie and Twistband (hip hair ties & accessories), is launching a swanky Pop Up Store in Corona del Mar through Dec. 31. Think NYC’s Dylan’s Candy Bar meets Fred Segal with a dash of the former Inkwells vibe.
It’s one-stop shopping opportunities for all your giving needs: fab finds ranging from $5 to $50 along with one-of-a-kind found objects like Hermes blankets and Chanel scarves.
Quite honestly you’ll have a tough time finding this selection at other boutiques: hand-knit scarves and snoods with Malo cashmere; vintage time pieces from Elgin, Emily Post etiquette books; re purposed USC gear by Generic Youth; origami x-mas trees made from naughty old Playboy magazines; a candy corner inspired by Andy Warhol and Willie Wonka select from more than 100 childhood favorites; locally made fragrance collection from 88 Orange.
Participating vendors include Alice Supply Co. Steve Jones-Better Shelter, Sugar Toes and 44 Knots, Mimi Fong Neckwear, Simple Peace Bags, La La-Keri Kassil, Dee Dee King Vintage Creations, Broke Down Clothing, Twistband-hip hair ties, and Jude Francis Jewelry.
Drop off your gifts for a custom wrap and take the stress out of the holidays. Free parking and gift wrapping for all purchases at Pop Up Store. And feel good about your purchases, 5% of all retail sales will benefit Casa of Orange County. Open through Dec. 31. 2747 East Coast Highway, next to Bruegger’s Bagels. 949.212.5453.
