Colonial chic

Almost 400 years separate present-day Boston from the time of its founding, but Colonial-era settlers might well have approved of the antique and artisanal items stocking the rough-hewn modular shelves of 1630. The new “pop-up shoppe,” conceived by Susan Battista and Fritz Klaetke of the design and branding agency Visual Dialogue, revels in the current taste for the historical and handmade, showcasing local makers and vintage goods including soy candles in old-time punch glasses, an oyster shucking kit, and stylishly plucky tees. Open through Oct. 31. 1630,

119 Newbury St., Boston. 617-397-7279,
