I don't mean to sound bitter, but I have gotten a tad steamed under the collar that nearly every pop-up shop in Boston tends to be for ladies. Yes, ladies love to shop, I get it. But there are a subset of gentleman such as myself who also enjoy (re: desperately need) retail therapy. So a big thank you to my friends at Ball and Buck, one of my favorite new Newbury Street stores, for pulling together this weekend's American Field Pop-Up. It takes place Oct. 20 and 21 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m..
The emphasis is on American-made brands such as Rancourt & Co, Randolph Engineering, New Balance, and Stormy Kromer. You can find it at the old power plant building at 560 Harrison Ave. in the South End. There will also be music from Nicholas Hagen, The Day Life, Cat London, Younger Me, Nat Osborne, and Jess Carvo, plus food trucks and (wait for it) beer.
