UPDATE: To clarify, Girls Can Tell’s current location will be closing, but it will move into the back of the new location, and Occasionette will occupy the front of the new shop. “It’s a giant space,” Selepouchin says.
The ever growing East Passyunk can expect a new gift shop to open doors in the spring. Owner of the existing Girls Can Tell homewares + gift shop on 1725 S. 12th Street is getting ready to open Occasionette at 1825 E. Passyunk Ave., which was most recently an Obama campaign office and previously a doll store. This shop will be a full service gift boutique, offering glassware, candles, house and bar accessories, art, tea towels, stationery, jewelry and more.

We’ll check back in soon with Selepouchin to get more details about the store opening but in the meantime feel free to visit LuckyAnt, where you can help support this project and learn more.
