What’s better than a local pop-up shop poppin’ off in downtown? A whole colony of trendsetting pop-up shops poppin’ off in downtown! And this Sunday, Brickell Fashion Market will open its doors and your eyes to a whole new world of local and up-and-coming vendors. The purpose of the bazaar: to cut the umbilical cord between you and the mainstream mall. The one-day shopping spree will take place at the InterContinental Miami (100 Chopin Plaza, Miami). Spend 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. melting away some Visa plastic and burning that Benji in your pocket by splurging on brands like OMG Designs, Fashion by Nikita, and Bikini 2 Go. There’ll even be a keratin station to help tame even the frizziest head cases. The topper on the retail cake: Admission is free. All that’s required is your RSVP at brickellfashionmarket.com. You’re sure to feel lighter afterward, even if it’s just in the wallet.
Sun., Aug. 24, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., 2014
