Forgive us as we wipe away a little tear, because it is the final weekend for Unbranded, the downtown Dallas pop-up shop conceived by local entrepreneurs Matt Alexander (Need, Foremost) and Bryan DeLuca (Foot Cardigan). Located at 1600 Commerce St., Unbranded provides rent-free exhibit space to local makers and creatives.

During the fifth and final session that starts on December 17 — participants have been rotating for weeks — visitors can shop the following clothing, accessories, and giftables:

  • HCT Threads
  • Satchel & Page
  • Hipster Baby
  • Allettare
  • Mad Macs
  • Bodega Negra
  • Flower Child Plants
  • Season Two
  • Lounge County
  • Create | Restore
  • Shop Moreau
  • Dandelion Cheesecakes
  • Rockstar Bakeshop
  • Bullzerk
  • Brick Knitwear
  • Unleashed

In addition to the above, explore goods from Need, Foremost, Foot Cardigan, and The Citizenry. Participating artists include Caris Fawcett, Tiffany McAnarney, and Kyle Steed.

Every week Unbranded has hosted a happy hour, and the final one (sniff, sob) takes place on Thursday, December 17, 5-9 pm. While you are boozing it up courtesy of Mend, you can get your picture taken at the photo booth provided by Photo Wagon from 5-8 pm.

On Friday, December 18, 11 am-1 pm, you can catch live music from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s holiday horn quartet outside the shop.

The final weekend of Unbranded also coincides with the Little Downtown Holiday Market, a collaboration between Little D Markets and Downtown Dallas Inc. So swing by Main Street Garden either before or after you hit up Unbranded. You have no excuse not to complete your holiday gift shopping.

Unbranded started last year as a temporary shop on Elm Street in Deep Ellum. This year, the pop-up is bigger — both in square footage and in number of exhibitors.

If you’d rather work than shop, Dallas Entrepreneur Center is providing free coworking space, with furniture courtesy of Herman Miller. Roam is providing touchscreens, and Wi-Fi also will be available onsite. 

Unbranded hours are Thursday, 11 am-9 pm, and Friday-Sunday, 11 am-7 pm. The last day is December 20.
