Besides the fact that today's date is December 12, 2012, aka 12-12-12, aka the last repeating-number date of the century, today is also a glaring reminder that you need to get your holiday shopping squared away STAT. To help ease the pain, we've rounded up all of the best holiday pop-up shops going down around town. From The Grove's Pop Carts for the accessory-loving gal to Satine's male-friendly Alpha and Apt 2B shop to Creatures of Comfort's Waanaki kids corner, let's do this.
