WESTPORT, Conn. — Two longtime friends and Fairfield ‘e-tailers’ have teamed up to open a pop-up holiday shop in the heart of downtown Westport.
Jennifer Bebon, co-founder of Holiday in A Box Shop, and Susanne Witte Settineri, president of Gourmet Cravings, say their seasonal store at 135 Post Road East is the perfect stop for all your holiday decorating and hostess gift solutions.
“Last year, we hosted a shopping event in a private home to introduce our new site to local friends and family, and it was a huge success,” Bebon said. “This year, we’re excited to give shoppers from all over Fairfield County the chance to experience our curated themes in an offline ‘up close and personal’ environment.
“We jumped at the chance to partner with Gourmet Cravings for our first foray into the holiday pop-up shop market.”
The shop opened Nov. 16 and will run through Dec. 27, offering gourmet food gifts featuring imported chocolate, cookies, teas, marzipan, jams, artisan breads and more, as well as upscale home decor keepsakes curated in varied holiday styles and themes.
Holiday in a Box Shop launched in 2016 with holiday decorating solutions delivered right to customers’ doors. Gourmet Cravings is the new kid on the block, having launched in September and bringing trendy and traditional fare from around the world to the U.S. marketplace.
“Holiday is the biggest time of year in the specialty foods industry,” Settineri said, “so it made sense to launch our brand in a holiday pop-up shop in one of the best holiday shopping areas in the country.”
