Curated shopping experience pops up at Pearl in time for the holidays

This holiday season, the Pearl is playing host to Popmarte, a rotating selection of retailers offering the best in local, regional, and national designers. Every week, five to seven new companies open their personalized pop-up shops, offering everything from home and beauty products, to fashion and accessories, and travel and technology goods. 

Curated by fashion industry vets Nina McCandless and Ashley Clauss, Popmarte offers an opportunity for San Antonians to support smaller or lesser-known brands from around the country. "The shops [at the Pearl] are a collection of beautifully curated, independent retail boutiques, and Popmarte [follows] suit, offering shoppers access to select and exclusive brands for an experience unique to San Antonio,” said Elizabeth Fauerso, chief marketing officer for the Pearl, in a release.

Popmarte, which opened on November 7, runs through December 23, will refresh its retail offerings every week, ensuring patrons a new experience virtually every time they step into the 1,200-square-foot space. "The experience of discovery is such an important aspect of purchasing today," said McCandless. "With the ever-changing retail landscape, Ashley and I are eager to collaborate with amazing brands to offer residents ... an in-person retail experience that feels authentic and engaging.”
