Taking a cue from cities like New York and San Francisco, Charleston dipped its toe in the Pop Up Shop trend several times this year. Local designers and companies without an official storefront — like Lauren Lail, Jane Pope, Lindsey Carter, and Marysia — got together with some of their peers to rent out an empty storefront and turn it into a local shopper’s paradise. With their selection of hard-to-find and handmade goods from some of the city’s most talented creators, it was always sad when the temporary shops closed their doors. But rest assured the trend hasn’t played out yet. Novel: Chapter II is the latest Pop Up Shop at 438 King Street, and they’ll be open through March 31.
