For many years, designer Sudha Pennathur has had annual sales and for the past nine years she has presented her pop-up shop, Sudha’s Treasures, at the Corte Madera Town Center. That’s where you’ll find the of Tiburon resident’s popular holiday gifts, usually found only in fashionable national stores, at a steep discount — 50% to 75% off their retail prices.

And, when shoppers shop at her pop-up, they are also supporting local charities; all proceeds from this year’s Sudha’s Treasures are earmarked for Whistlestop, Marin Villages and Marin Symphony.

“It should be a shoppers delight,” Pennathur says.
