The Holiday Pop-Up Shops are returning to Midtown in downtown Oklahoma City its fifth year on Friday.
During its five weekend-long-run, 35 shops will rotate through its six geodesic domes. Except for its first weekend, the shops will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.

After deciding to retire, we were hired to sell the collection of buildings that International Crystal Manufacturing had been using for manufacturing and office for 40 years. The buildings contained original film vaults and tile from the era in which they were used as film distribution buildings for MGM.
The buildings were purchased by a group of local investors who are redeveloping the property into a mix of retail and office.

If pop-up shopping opportunities are your thing, there are two new stores you'll need to check out in the Swanson's building in Midtown later this year.
Siempre Viva, owned by Sally January, will open in a street-front space inside the building to sell clothing, shoes, handbags, accessories and home goods made by Mexican artisans using native textiles.
G. Colton's, meanwhile, will operate inside of a space accessible from the building's breezeway entrance. The store, owned by Garrett Colton, will sell art, clothing and furniture made by emerging and established artists that he's created relationships with.
Talk about a pop-up opportunity. Developers have set aside 800 square feet of space for that use in the ultracool Midtown development that had been the home of Swanson's Tire Shop at NW 9 and Hudson Avenue for more than 70 years.

Commonplace Books now fills one of those needs with their new book store opening at The Edge.
