SAN ANTONIO, TX (September 3, 2019) - ​Pearl​ ​is thrilled ​to announce three new pop-up experiences coming to Pearl’s Dielmann Building this fall. ​The series will feature curated brands made in San Antonio and Dallas and offer locals another unique shopping opportunity as each of the pop-ups will occupy t​he space for about a month.

The Dielmann Building (​200 E Grayson St, Ste 100 San Antonio, TX 78215)​, formerly the Il Sogno space, will host retails shops Miron Crosby, Period Modern and a contemporary design studio by ​Peter Glassford and Isabel Moncada. ​Miron Crosby​, a bespoke boot brand from Dallas, will take over the space, followed by ​Period Modern​, a brand offering hand-selected vintage and authentic Danish mid-century furniture.

“Pearl loves collaborating with unique brands that reference regional sensibilities,” said Elizabeth Fauerso, chief marketing officer of Pearl. “We’re excited to utilize the space to showcase small businesses and expand our retail footprint.”

The pop-up series will close with a contemporary Mexican design showcase of vibrant fashion, jewelry, textiles, leather goods, and furniture from Guadalajara-based Peter Glassford and Isabel Moncada.

The pop-up schedule at Pearl includes:

Miron Crosby​ | Sept. 12 through Oct. 12 open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

  • Sisters Lizzie Means Duplantis and Sarah Means are the force behind Miron Crosby—a bespoke boot brand with a flagship store in Dallas’ Highland Park Village. Miron Crosby is inspired by the sisters’ experiences of growing up on their family’s West Texas cattle ranch, and later living and working in New York City. Their artisanal boots for women, men, and children are hand-lasted in Texas by Rios of Mercedes—a 160-year-old manufacturer and cousins of the Means sisters. Their line features the iconic tall cowboy boot, the popular shorty, and the novel midi-boot in an array of leathers, exotic skins, and intricate stitching. More info: ​
