About PUF

The Pop Up Flea is a short-term store for long-term goods. It’s a shop that opens one weekend at a time and a meeting of the menswear minds. It involves, in no specific order: good people, better things, expert craftsmanship, exercises in refinement, brands you love, up-and-coming designers, and menswear done right. Each time we host a Pop Up Flea event, we select a roster of elite participating brands and open a dream department store to the public for one weekend. Vendors are given free reign to design their own miniature shop, bring merchandise that is hard to find elsewhere and show up to peddle their wares and meet their fans. The Pop Up Flea was born in 2009, and like most successful ventures, it started over cocktails.

Designing Massive Quantities Of Tote Bags With Steven Alan
When we formed a partnership last year with American Express OPEN's Shop Small team, we found a partner that was fully invested in helping small businesses across the U.S. We also found a partner that shares our love for well-made things and the good people who make them.

So when the opportunity came about this year to help the Shop Small team design the highly coveted Small Business Saturday tote bags that go out to hundreds of thousands of shops stores throughout the country, we called on a friend.

Steven Alan is a Pop Up Flea alum and talented designer who has built an amazing business over the last twenty years. He's a model for great small shops everywhere and a mentor to us. Working alongside the Shop Small team, Steven designed two tote bags that represent his design sensibilities and honor the great small stores that will use these totes as shopping bags today.

We're proud to have a hand in getting some great design into the hands of millions of people and proud to support Small Business Saturday. Go out and Shop Small today to show your love for your favorite small businesses.

Chances are you'll see one of these totes in the wild..
