Fortunately, The Newbury Collection has put together a stellar program of “Holiday Shop-Ups” aimed at giving consumers a special taste of up-and- coming Boston area brands. These pop ups are a great way to find distinctive gifts while supporting small, local businesses. Here’s a quick guide:
Misha and Puff
