The Styleliner Holiday Igloo
Shop unique accessories from around the world in the Styleliner igloo, a wintertime pop-up at NoMI Garden. Styleliner founder Joey Wolffer, who started the mobile boutique concept in New York City, travels the world collecting and curating boho-chic items you won’t find anywhere else: jewelry, scarves, bags, and more. Open through December 23. 800 N. Michigan Ave.

HoliDose
Now that Dose Market—the artisanal food and fashion event founded by April Francis—is a weekly affair, shoppers have two more chances to browse the special holiday edition of the beloved bazaar. On Sunday, December 8 and Sunday, December 15, scour Chicago-made finds from Atelier Azza, Femme du Coupe, Maven Collection, Fat Blossom Farm, Stu’s Kitchen, and more. Plus, enjoy fun stations for gift tag-making and other holiday prep. $5/ticket. 1st Ward at Chop Shop, 2033 W. North Ave.

Randolph Street Market
The second of two holiday-themed Randolph Street Market events takes place next weekend, December 14-15, hosted by style-setter and writer Barri Leiner Grant. She’ll mark her favorite finds before the doors open, choosing among endless vintage, antique, and handcrafted items. Discover Mad Men-era barware, extravagant estate-salvaged jewelry, frothy furs, and haute housewares. The market is topped off with kids’ activities, lunch options from nearby BellyQ, and gratis gift-wrapping. $10 at the door; $8 on randolphstreetmarket.com in advance. 1340 W. Washington St., 312-666-1200

Purely Fashion Pop-Up
Perfect for last-minute shoppers, Purely’s temporary set-up at the 900 North Michigan Shops is one of the only holiday pop-ups that remain open right up until Christmas Eve. A brick-and-mortar extension of Chicago-based fashion app Purely, the pop-up features fashions from up-and-coming designers and local-loved labels like Samantha Sleeper, Roslyn x Suite, and Henry & Belle. In fact, it may just be the perfect spot to find your own holiday party ensemble. 900 N. Michigan Ave.
