Participating brands on opening week include Scrub Runes, Island Gal Beauty Bar, Made in Goods, Shop Rue and more. The event at the Lincoln Eatery is free to attend and RSVPs via Eventbrite are suggested.
The launch of Pop Up & Shop Up as a permanent stall within the food hall continues the Lincoln Eatery’s mission of bringing local artisans together, creating a sense of community in Miami Beach. The boutique will continue to highlight minority-owned businesses and showcase locally-made products, including makeup, skincare, haircare, artisan goods, homemade jewelry, works of art, sustainable fashion and more.
The Pop Up & Shop Up concept was created in 2019 when Lamoni sought to create a venue for local makers to sell their own homemade goods on a consistent basis. After operating at venues across South Florida, the Lincoln Eatery adopted the activation as a monthly event, well attended by South Florida locals seeking a sense of community in the middle of bustling South Beach.
