Taken features vintage and handmade treasures. The pop-up shop appears at Green Spring Station Maker’s Market this Saturday

In addition to the individual crafters, a unique pop-up shop, called Taken, will feature a curated mix of vintage finds and handmade goods by local makers. Taken is “popping up” in multiple city locations this holiday season (they are also taking over the new Strand Theatre on Harford Rd every weekend through the holidays).

This time of year, retailers are desperately trying to rope you into the excitement with alluring deals, and loud, panic-inducing advertisements. It’s hard not to feel the pull of shopping even if, in theory, you’d much prefer a quiet season of friends, family, and foods covered in cheese.
