Do you remember the Queen of Jeans sign that was posted outside of the former King of Jeans location last year? How about the Toynbee tiles you might still spot around the city? South Fellini turns these things and more of your favorite Philly-isms into t-shirts, pins and more.
Instead of ordering these items through South Fellini’s online shop, you’ll soon be able to visit them at an East Passyunk Avenue storefront. The business will be taking over the former Pookah’s Hookah & BYOB, otherwise known as Eclectic Expressionism, location at 1507 E. Passyunk Ave.
Pookah’s Hookah & BYOB announced plans to close at the end of 2015, but owner Nicola Vittoria decided to keep the shop around for a while longer. At the beginning of September, the location will be switching over to Tony Trov and Johnny Zito for South Fellini.
The move-in date for the combination studio and shop is September 1 and they hope to be up-and-running in October. Expect to see a selection of the t-shirts, hoodies, pins and patches that they currently sell online. Thanks to some successful pop-up sales and the continued success of the business, Trov says, “the timing was just right” for them to open a storefront.
If you’re looking to grab a cheap hookah, or other miscellaneous items, you can still swing by Eclectic Expressionism for some sales.
