Like many artists, Kaaren Anderson travels to fairs to show and sell her art. She thought there had to be a better way, particularly during the busy holiday season.
Last year, Anderson tried the pop-up shop concept during the holiday season with a group of local artists. FLY BY is returning for a second year in at Northfield Commons at 50 State St. in Pittsford, offering unique gifts and funky art by local artists and entrepreneurs. Artists at the shop include: Solveig Studio with Anderson's line of art, Anna Overmeyer, Melissa Matson, Chicory Farm Soap, Felto Fashion, Michael P. Slattery, Josh Randall, Karen Ferner, Danielle Zatowsky, Mark Groaning and One and Kind.
FLY BY is now open and will close at the end of December. Its hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
There's a lot to see in the pop-up shop. Anderson of Solveig Studio creates a whimsical line of pet art using Sharpie markers. The artworks are functional as well, with place mats and mugs in the mix. Feltro Fashion offers felted scarves and jewelry for gift giving. And there's goat's milk soap from Chicory Farm.
“The maker movement has really taken off," Anderson said.
