Pop Shop Galveston

Written by Lauriston Brewster

Last weekend, we ventured way past the Loop for this one, guys. But for a majority of Houstonians — where we measure distance not in miles but in terms of minutes –Galveston is a pretty quick and quintessential weekend getaway.

But instead of the Sea Wall, the epicenter for all things beach-y in Galveston, we took to the delightfully quaint Strand Historic District for a Pop Shop.

Pop Shops specialize in artfully curated shopping of modern handmade goods, visual art exhibitions, small bite tastings, vintage, handmade, and one of a kind antiques & unique shopping.

As people sipped drinks and browsed homemade soaps, hot sauce, jewelry, and plants, local DJ and friend of the blog Mr. Castillo spun some awesome tunes (check out his set list here).
If you missed this one, don’t fret: there are more Pop Shop America events on the horizon.

Coming May 13 in the Heights is Flowerpalooza at the Pop Shop America Boutique. Admission is free, and you’ll find all kinds of plants, including terrariums, flowers, flower crowns, seed bombs, and essential oils. Just in time for Mother’s Day (*cough* You have 2 weeks left *cough, nudge*).

On June 10 weekend, the Pop Shop Houston Festival will be at Silver Street Studios, a 20,000 square foot arts and event complex in Washington Corridor. It’s $8 for the full weekend and children 12 and younger get in free.

It is sure to be a veritable explosion of cocktails, food trucks, live music/DJs, visual art, and more vintage and handmade goodies than you can imagine. Also feel free to walk around the venue and visit the 70+ open artist studios housed in Silver Street Studios.
