Hudson’s Cashmere Popup Store Returns For The Season
Five years ago, when Bernie and Harriet Shur needed a place on Warren to set up their cashmere popup shop during the holiday season, they had their pick of seven empty storefronts. This year, they could not find a single empty one on which to alight. Hearing that the cashmere purveyors had no place to pop up, the owner of Home Asian Antiques, Renee McBride, invited them to take the front half of her store (including the windows). Good for her business, good for the Shur family.
And good for the rest of us, too. Now they are really able to spread out their capacious collection of top-of-the-line, deeply discounted cashmere scarves ($35, three for $95), throws ($100- $150), women’s sweaters ($75-$95), men’s sweaters ($95 - $110), wraps ($40-$75), ballet slippers ($35), and scores of gloves and knit caps. Each piece is from a respected supplier of cashmere fabrics and knits to high-end designers here and abroad.
The shop is now open and ready for you to stock up through January 5. When we visited the shop in late November, the place was already packed, but there’s a lot of cashmere in there for those with a soft spot for “the jewel of fibers.” There’s new merchandise arriving daily, and all credit cards are accepted.
