“We are excited to bring Merry Maker to two locations in Orange County this holiday season,” said Melissa Larob, co-owner of Poppi Seed Market. “Building on the success of our last two pop-up stores, we’ve added more designers and more festivities to enhance our seasonal shopping experience. We want to celebrate our creators by injecting money into the local economy, but also help create essential memories that our buyers and their families can remember for years to come.

The pop up will open on Saturday November 19 and its last day will be Wednesday December 21. Both locations are closed Mondays and Thanksgiving with individual hours of operation.

Manufacturers include Dex and Bodie, Mama’s Handmade Sudsy Soap, Coffee Talk Clothing, Sugar and Grain Bake Co, Story Spark and Rooted Swim.

For added holiday fun, there will be workshops from Darling Daydream and And Succulents, two local Orange County women-owned businesses; Visits from Santa, face painting, children’s crafts, hot chocolate and coffee, treats and special sales during the month-long pop-up. Additionally, there will be a Ladies Night Out open house in partnership with Jasper Plum Boutique, a women’s boutique also in the Tustin Legacy District on November 30 from 5-8 p.m.

Poppi Seed Market was established in 2019 by a mother-daughter team as a pop-up market offering local artisans the opportunity to share and sell their wares and build relationships with their community. We hosted the first-ever Merry Maker Pop Up Shop in 2020 at Tustin’s Marketplace to create a safe yet festive shopping environment during the pandemic. Our creators had such a great time that we decided to add it to our event schedule as an annual holiday event.
