The Montclair Center Pop-Up offerings are unique, in that featured products are what curators have dubbed ‘Jerseyana.’ Included are the ‘Jerseyopoly’ board game and “Goodnight, Jersey” children’s book, as well as NJ350 and state-branded merchandise; educational items; books about NJ – its history, quirks, nature, food, and politics; items specific to the arts and creativity in Montclair; Governor Chris Christie’s popular state-silhouette lapel pin; Items from the Island of Jersey (from which NJ received its name) and more.
The Montclair location will remain open through November 30, 2014.
