Last weekend, I was lucky enough to tag-a-long with some of my new friends from the Treasure Valley Avengers to dress up as their Captain Marvel for the Cars and Coffee Trunk or Treat. While I was there, I noticed a few new shops popping up!

The Village is getting four new holiday pop-up shops as we move into the Christmas shopping season. As Boise and the Treasure Valley's Official Christmas Music Station, the one that immediately grabbed my attention was Holiday Nest, an Eagle-based home and garden specializing in all kinds of holiday items and decor! You can find them in the old Charming Charlie's location across from MAC Cosmetics.

Green Apple Boutique is another pop-up open on Friday and Saturdays through December 21. It's a collection of local artisans selling handmade decor and art perfect for holiday gift giving. You'll find them near Rural Haze and Panache.

See's Candies will bring their temporary shop back to The Village mid-November and you'll find them near Grimaldi's and White House Black Market. Hickory Farms is planning to open a pop-up next door to Marshall's this month as well.

As far as the The Village's normal holiday celebrations, the Ice Skating Rink opens weather permitting on Saturday, November 16. Their tree lighting ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, November 21.
