10 Cool Things to Buy at the Eden In Love 2019 Black Friday Pop-Up Shop

We pre-scouted all the goodies—here are the must-haves to put at the top of your list.


For those among us who consider shopping our sport, Black Friday is pretty much the Super (Chic) Bowl. And one of the day’s highlights is always local boutique Eden In Love’s pop-up shop.


This year is no exception as the store is getting set to host its biggest pop-up yet, located at the former Famous Footwear space at Ward Centre, a whopping 16,000 square feet jam-packed with Eden In Love goodies. Fittingly called Black Fri-Cray, the Nov. 29 shopping event will give customers 50% off from 6 to 8 a.m., 40% off from 8 to 10 a.m., 30% off from 10 a.m. to noon, and 20% off from noon.


To help you make it out of the madness with all the best buys, we scoped out the pop-up ahead of time. See below for our cheat sheet to all the must-have finds.
