Our Guide to New York's Best Holiday Pop-Up Shops, Markets, Craft Fairs and More

This holiday season, forgo the wares at department and big box stores in favor of one-of-a-kind goodies found inside the city's many pop-up shops, holiday markets and craft bazaars. And though 'pop-up shop' is one of the most eye-rollingly widespread retail phrases this time of year, second only to 'artisanal,' the spots we've listed below are selling undeniably awesome goods, from jeweled bib necklaces to toys to skate boards. Don't you dare think about re-gifting that Best Buy gift card you've had stashed in your drawer since April.
