Do you like sleek, minimal and well-curated luxury items that will make both you and your home look pretty? Of course you do. Which is what makes the THREAD at Dock 5, the retail pop-up shop of 20+ designers in Union Market, a very solid place to blow some cash this weekend. Plus, y’know, it only comes around once a year, so carpe diem and all that jazz.
Expect to see some of your favorite local artists and designers, including Moore & Giles, Mutiny, DURKL, Harry’s, Saint Claire Jewelry, and ANTHOM. Handmade men’s shaving kits? Muted oil paintings? Minimal metal jewelry? Leather folio case? You can find it all here. My personal favorites were the Typecase Industries hand-stamped greeting cards that said “THIS IS MORE PERSONAL THAN A DRUNK TEXT.” (And they were only $5.)
Plus, you’ll get to shop to some very modern-sounding spa/ambient/club beats, which always makes the experience a little nicer. You can also snack on bites and drinks from local vendors Atlas Brewing, Dolcezza, Gordy’s Pickle Jar, Frenchie’s Pastries, Green Hat and more.
Shop the collection today through Sunday, April 6 at 1309 5th St NE.
