After spending a lot of time in their workshop lately, the sibling duo behind Power Designs wants a little bit of face-time with its shoppers and prospective shoppers. Mary-Ellen Power and her brother Graeme Power have been putting their creative minds and woodworking skills together for the last handful of years, making a name for themselves with handcrafted furniture, home accessories and custom designs. But this weekend will be their very first pop-up market.

“It gives people a chance to actually see our work in person,” says Mary-Ellen, “and even if you don’t want to shop you can have a drink, too.” That’s because Brightwood Brewery (35 Portland Street) plays host to the event this Saturday, November 24 (from 12-4pm), where you’ll be able to peruse the Powers’ handmade Christmas signs, cutting boards, plant stands and their most popular item—blanket ladders (see above). “We just always flow with what people want,” says Mary-Ellen. “But that style just kind of took off, the kind of Scandinavian vibes that are super on-trend right now.”
