Downtown Wanderland

A pop of cheer in the neighborhood

Ten days ’til Christmas. If you’re a procrastinator that sentence fills you with such anxiety. What’s a person—short on time, gifts, and perhaps holiday cheer because of a busy schedule—to do? (Asking for a friend.)

Across the street from The Joule on Commerce Street you’ll find Unbranded—a pop-up store featuring local-made gifts, including minimalist planners by ZerCareer and wood planters, coasters, and serving blocks from Gaston Made. You’ll also find a complimentary gift wrapping station, photo booth, and happy hour drinks to sip while you shop.

Unbranded is part of Downtown Wanderland, a serious dose of seasonal cheer in the neighborhood that includes shopping, food trucks, photos with Santa, crafting, movies, and more. Tonight’s highlight:  A Christmas Story outside at Browder Plaza. (Bundle up and bring your own lawn chairs.) Tomorrow, it’s a free gift wrap demo at 6 p.m. and there are still places available for Saturday afternoon’s holiday centerpiece class. Just stop by our free smudge stick workshop with Shamsy first!

The Details: Unbranded, 1508 Commerce Street. Thursdays through Saturdays, 11 a.m.– 8 p.m. Ends December 16. See the weekend’s schedule here.
