A locally owned female business featuring an eclectic mix of handmade and eco-friendly gifts, plants and accessories is slated to arrive at Stuyvesant Plaza as a pop-up store for the holiday season. 5th Corner Goods & Gifts will be located between Josie’s Table and Bountiful Bread through December 31.
In lieu of a traditional ribbon-cutting, a ceremonial vine-cutting is scheduled for October 26 at 10 a.m. The vine will be cut with oversized garden shears to reflect the shop’s plant-based gifts and products. The day’s events will also feature a Spin-the-Wheel contest for in-store discounts and prizes, gifts with purchase, and more. Beverages will be available courtesy of Top Shelf Wine & Spirits and live music will be performed by Caity Gallagher from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
5th Corner Goods & Gifts is co-owned by Ricky Talmage and Danielle Obernesser, whose original gift store debuted in Delmar in 2021.
“We are excited to celebrate the holiday season at Stuyvesant Plaza,” Talmage said. “For us to be part of the unique mix of eateries and retailers at a destination known for its intimacy and nostalgic charm, during the busiest shopping season of the year, is a dream come true.”
The Stuyvesant Plaza pop-up shop, the duo’s second location, will feature an assortment of seasonal and other gifts, including: baby items; bath and body products; clothing, bags and accessories; hats and mittens; home goods; jewelry; men’s and women’s collections; paper and office items; pet lover goods; and plants and planters.
Prior to debuting their first shop at 395 Kenwood Avenue in Delmar two years ago, Talmage sold hand-crafted jewelry and Obernesser sold hand-made clothing and bags. The idea of co-owning a gift store made perfect sense. After seeing their shop flourish and thrive, the notion of expanding, even temporarily, seemed like the right choice to make, Talmage said.
“We are happy to welcome 5th Corner Goods & Gifts to Stuyvesant Plaza for the upcoming holiday season,” said Stuyvesant Plaza General Manager Rachel Ferluge. “Ricky and Danielle have created a unique brand surrounding hyperlocal ties and simplistic gifts that is sure to appeal to Plaza shoppers in search of the perfect gifts for family and friends.”
5th Corner Goods and Gifts will be open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
