Making their return to A Little Beacon Space on Thanksgiving Weekend will be the wonderful folks at 50Roots.com for their Second Annual Pop-Up Shop! Watch for the sidewalk sign to be out, and then come on in! Here's what the weekend will look like:
Friday: OPEN! 1 pm(ish) to 6 pm
Saturday: 11 am to 8 pm
Music by Rich Michos and a Complimentary Happy Hour!
Sunday: Noon to 5 pm
Normally, the collection from 50Roots.com is only available online, as the digital retailer (wife-husband team Christa Gray Page and Patrick Page) is based out of Newburgh, NY. "Like a lot of Americans," says Christa, "we believe in supporting our economy, and we appreciate the designers and businesses that put their hearts into every product that they create."
This weekend only, you can interact with everyone shopping the pop-up. You never know what will happen in a pop-up experience. Remember last year when 50Roots did the Mannequin Challenge? Watch the video below to see how everyone stood still in fun poses (like mid-dancing). Have fun as you shop all of Main Street!
A LITTLE OF WHAT YOU'LL FIND IN THE 50ROOTS POP-UP SHOP
TRIXIE & MILO
Says Patrick: "Alcohol is a misunderstood vitamin. It’s vitamin A, isn’t it?" Better not take the malnourishment risk. Enjoy your favorite beverage with this 1950s-style cocktail shaker.
GREEN TREE JEWELRY
STEAMPUNK ROCKER THROW SWITCH
The Frankenstein Light Switch cover goes over any standard and medium size residential single rocker light switch and installs over the existing plastic cover using the existing screws to fasten to the wall (in some cases longer screws may be required; for these cases 50Roots has supplied two extra, longer screws)
YOU EARNED IT BOTTLE OPENER
The You Earned It bottle opener is made in the USA of solid brass. It is sand-casted, tumbled, polished and hand finished making it the smoothest bottle opener ever used. Says Christa, of all the praise: "That’s not just the post-work beer talking."
LOVE THY BEAST
CANVAS PET TOTE
Carry your dog around in style! This utilitarian tote is made with 18-ounce weight double layer of cotton duck canvas and is double topstitched for extra durability. There is a comfortable scoop for your woof's head and has two outside pockets in the front for you. The inside features a collar-to-leash attachment with solid brass hardware and a removable sturdy, bonded leather foot pad.
Why not have a reminder of being a kid when you’re climbing your way up the corporate ladder? Repurposed and recycled lost and forgotten pieces of memorabilia are converted into Lego Cufflinks. Hand-crafted using real Legos, the tiles are secured with super strong epoxy to silver plated bezel cufflink posts.
WHISKEY AND HOW TO ENJOY IT GIFT SET
This gift box is designed to provide an introduction to this fine spirit, and features two hefty eight-ounce whisk(e)y tumblers, two premium leather coasters, and a guide book written and edited by the gents of Boarding Pass. The booklet is a highly informative guide to understanding whisk(e)y, how it’s crafted, and most importantly, how to enjoy it with friends.
WORK HARD/PLAY HARD DUFFEL
Made from 18-ounce duck canvas, 1000-denier nylon on the exterior and 4420-denier nylon on the interior, this duffel offers durable, water-repellent quality that looks as good as it protects. It’s the perfect size for a weekend getaway or carrying your gear to the gym.
EVERYDAY TOTE in EVERGREEN
Says Christa: "Possibly our favorite bag to date from our dear friends at Fabric Horse." This bag fits in your bicycle basket and is shaped to hold a 13" laptop. Water-resistant, and made from waxed canvas and factory rejected seatbelt webbing.
This clock was so popular last year, it sold out! So 50Roots brought it back. Check out the Scarlet Limited Edition Kit-Cat Clock. Add some pop to your home or office. Perfect for the holidays and every day!
