No town loves a good pop-up shop quite like New York City, especially this time of year, when unique gift-giving becomes a competitive sport for savvy shoppers looking to forgo crazed shopping malls and big box stores in favor of presents with a little more heart and soul. The top pop-up on our shortlist that provides just that? Lizzie Fortunato's temporary storefront in Manhattan's East Village neighborhood. There you'll find not only Lizzie's eponymous line of structural cuffs and statement necklaces that have graced the pages of glossy fashions magazines, but an impressive selection of home goods and art from around the world as well. 

Artworks by Anna Topuriya and Caroline Z. Hurley.

Together with her business-savvy twin sister, Kathryn, the well-traveled duo has expanded their brand to feature a curated collection of one-of-a-kind products they've dubbed "Fortune Finds"—ranging from Philadelphia-made minimalist ceramics to perfectly weathered vintage Moroccan rugs—all in the name of slow production and thoughtful artistry. Even if you're not in New York to peruse the tiny emporium, you can pick up most everything you'd find in the shop online. Find yourself in the city? Be sure to visit the store at 34 East 7th Street, Wednesday through Sunday from 11:00am—7:00pm until December 31.
