Era Atomica has only been out of 1726 E. Passyunk Ave. for two weeks, and already a new store is set to move in.
A gift shop called Knack will specialize in handmade goods locally made (not to be confused with the ever-charming Nice Things Handmade across the street). Owner Jen Pirrone says she hopes to open in the last weekend of March.
“Just about everything I will stock in my store is made by artisans and crafters that live in (or have lived in), work in or just love Philadelphia and the surrounding areas,” Pirrone said.
The shop also plans to offer small crafting classes taught by the artists themselves, as well as free coffee and tea for shoppers.
Pirrone says the grand opening weekend will be March 29 and 30. Get to work, Jen. You only have a few weeks!
