CultureMap's Holiday Pop-up Shop, presented by Lexus, was just the ticket to get Dallas shoppers in the spirit of the season. More than 25 of our favorite local brands — clothing and jewelry, home decor, pet essentials, artful gifts, and edibles — set up at Sixty Five Hundred for this premiere event.

Upon arrival, guests — including Suzanne Droese, Catherine Cody, Jordan Liberty, LeeAnne Locken, Julie Kinzie and Aimee Deputy Cook — were greeted with holiday tunes and Cointreau cocktails before embarking on their quest to find the perfect gifts. Women could choose from Sussie's, Tootsies, Trousseau, B.Stellar, Gyspy Wagon, Nicole Kwon, Amanda Sterett, Accents or Piermarini; for men there was Mizzen+Main, Need, and Q Clothier and Rye 51.

Foot Cardigan was also onsite, selling whimsical socks for men, women and children, while Baby Bow Tie and KidBiz satisfied wish lists for little ones. For the home, Ellis Hill, Dirt, Life of Riley and Neighborhood didn't disappoint. Lucky Dog Barkery offered treats for four-legged friends, while the DMA Museum Store sold gifts as artful as the works at the museum itself.

Sue Schwartz's favorite part of the event was being able to cruise around, cocktail in hand, and shop for her fiancé; Jackson got to discover new brands he didn't know about prior to the pop-up. Jessica Barfield was happy to get some alone time with her precious new baby while shopping for his big brother.

Those who showed up hungry were in for many treats — from Bread Winners Cafe; Dude, Sweet Chocolate; The Gem; Scardello Artisan Cheese; and Sucre Sucre by Lucia. While shoppers satisfied their appetites, carolers from Booker T. Washington and performances from the Sound Foundation and D and Chi kept them entertained. Speaking of entertaining, shoppers also snapped fun pics at the photo booth.

After purchasing their presents, attendees could partake in the complimentary gift-wrapping station or try their hand at crafting personalized cards and tags. Perhaps best of all, a portion of proceeds from the day benefited beloved Dallas charities Ronald McDonald House and Family Place.
