Two Fairfield-based e-tailers are teaming up to tap into the national craze for holiday pop-up shops: Holiday In A Box Shop and Gourmet Cravings recently launched a temporary holiday decor and imported gourmet foods gift store located at 135 Post Rd. East, Westport, right next door to ODDZ.
Aimed at holiday enthusiasts seeking ready-made decorating and hostess gift solutions, the store is open through Dec. 27, and offers a festive showcase of gourmet food items featuring imported chocolates, cookies, teas, candies, marzipan, jams, shortbread, artisan breads and more, as well as upscale home decor keepsakes and ornaments curated into a variety of inspiring holiday styles and themes.
“Last year, we hosted a shopping event in a private home to introduce our new site to local friends and family,” recounts Jennifer Bebon, Holiday In A Box Shop co-founder (Bebon co-owns the business with her sister, Mari Flicker). “This year, we’ve partnered with Gourmet Cravings for our first foray into the holiday pop-up shop market, offering one-of-a-kind gift baskets, gourmet treats, and festive holiday packaging.”
“Holiday is the the biggest time of year in the specialty foods industry,” says Susanne Witte Settineri, Gourmet Cravings president, “so it made sense to launch our brand in a pop-up shop in Fairfield County, one of the best holiday shopping areas in the country.”
