What's Happening in:  East Passyunk Crossing 

Aversa PR & Events settles into 12th Street office

Kory Aversa has moved his business Aversa PR & Events into the corner office that was Girls Can Tell, at 1725 S. 12th Street. So we stopped by to show off the new digs.

GCT owner Sara Selepouchin just moved that operation into a new Passyunk Avenue storefront, sharing the space with her new Occasionette gift shop. The office, for a time also was a tailor, if we remember correctly.

Aversa has a ton of East Passyunk clients – Ms. Goody’s Cupcakes, Headhunters saloon, Noir, many more – and has been hosting social media workshops for Passyunk businesses in conjunction with the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District, which is another client. Those seminars will move from the BID office to there. They also plan to begin offering similar seminars to businesses that aren’t on the avenue.

What's Happening in:  East Passyunk Crossing 

PR office will move into Girls Can Tell’s retail space

Girl’s Can Tell, the gift shop that’s soon to be on the move into a Passyunk Ave shop, hasn’t even gotten out of their corner storefront at 1725 S. 12th Street and the place is already rented with a new tenant.

Kory Aversa of Aversa PR & Events said he pounced on the location as soon as he saw that GCT was moving. Aversa, who was profiled last week in the South Philly Review, had been working out of his home south of Snyder Avenue and needed more space to serve his growing roster of clients, which include Ms. Goody Cupcake, Headhunters Hair, the East Passyunk BID and several others. He also just hired an assistant.

Sharing the office will also be Tom Bowles, a NASCAR writer who owns Frontstretch.com, hosts a Sirius radio show and has won two Emmys for his participation in race broadcasts.

Occasionette, new gift shop, planned for Passyunk

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.

Soon to be Occasionette, 1825 E. Passyunk Ave.
Girls Can Tell and Occasionette owner Sara Selepouchin describes her venture as a way “for me to bring you the best in what’s out there in the world of gifts through a well-curated shop in our neighborhood.” Selepouchin also lives in South Philly and she said she’s thrilled to provide a better shopping experience to her friends and neighbors.

Occasionette will be a few doors down from the new HOME Furnishings Boutique, which we showed you in November. Combined with Nice Things Handmade up the street, these new shops can create a level of density that will attract more weekday shoppers. After all, you may remember a lone gift shop on the 1800 block of Passyunk called JimmyStyle, which opened and closed in about a year a few years back (didn’t mean to get all Debbie Downer on you).

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.
