Saba and Sarah Jawda have a successful design business and a crowded social calendar, the combination of which one might think would keep them pretty busy. And yet for the third year in a row, the Jawdas have dedicated their December to hosting a holiday pop-up shop.
The smallish showroom space is filled with highly giftable goods overflowing from shelves and tables, most of which are brands that are either based in or have some connection to Houston. The spread includes paper goods from Mode Living, thick, luxurious socks from Mr. Grey, Rozendoves' artful scarves, apothecary and candles from Manready Mercantile, Bartaille bags, high-end art/design magazines via Tomo Mags, plus a few kid-friendly treats and jewelry that ranges from simple leather bracelets to stackable gemstone necklaces. Also on offer: Saba Jawda's abstract paintings and Sarah Jawda's cheeky illustrated cards and prints.
Inch for inch, this just might the most target-rich gift spot in town. I also love the friendly price range—cards and other treats (candy!) start under $10, with plenty of accessories for men and women between $15 and $50 right next to splurges like stunning Houston-made leather duffel bags priced at $600.
The Jawda and Jawda Holiday Pop-Up Shop is located at 1919 Missouri St. in Montrose and lasts through Dec. 22.
