Pop-Up Shop Thurs. and Fri. on Furman

monica-2This one’s for all the moms (or moms-to-be) out there: a pop-up shop that offers chic maternity and post-maternity tunics, tanks and tops, along with jewelry, kids’ swimwear, stuffed animals and lots more.
It’s the brainchild of local designer Monica Patel, herself a mom (with another on the way) who drew from her own experiences to curate the store. “It’s so hard to find maternity wear and something to wear after,” she said. “You need something to make you feel good. So I wanted to bring a really cool curated store to you so you don’t have to go into the city to see something new … Everybody has something really interesting to bring to the table.” The shop will be open Thursday from 12-8 and Friday by appointment only. (To set up an appointment, email Monica at project.two@me.com) 360 Furman St., Suite 1114

    The use of the word “curate” as a synonym for wholesale buying is new to me. Phony and pretentious.

    It’s a yuppie/brownstoner way of saying no tube socks which is code for something far more sinister and phobic.

    I’m eating a curated ham sandwich right now.

  • David on Middagh

    Really? Mine has tube socks.

  • AEB

    No, I like the word and its use. Now I can say that every morning I curate my cats’ littlerbox….

    Wasn’t it the Curate in Wells’s “The Time Machine” who went mad? Played by Tim Robbins in the latest film version.

    Maybe curate was a typo for cutrate?

    A nice idea! Why jump all over it because of one word when a shop like this is the sort of thing many bloggers wish would come to Montague Street? Let’s support the entrepeneurial spirit even if the product doesn’t suit everyone.
