Saman Mahmood of Radhika and Saman is hosting another pop-up shop this summer ... taking place this week at 616 E. Ninth St. between Avenue B and Avenue C. 

This year, the boutique owner is joined by her daughters, one of whom is vending handmade lip oils and the other lemonade, plus an artist who sells Muslim/Palestine-inspired products. 

Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Sunday. 

Mahmood sells dresses (which can be custom-ordered), skirts, tops, and other accessories handcrafted by women in Pakistan and India. 

Mahmood's business partner, Radhika Khanna, whom she met while a student at FIT in 2001, died of lupus in February 2022 at age 47. Part of the shop's proceeds go to the Lupus and aHUS Foundation.
