We spotted this sign the other day…
…in the window here, right off Broad where Passyunk crooks to the left, across from the soon-to-be Palladino’s.
A Facebook page for the shop says on Sept. 15 that the owner signed a lease. “I’m no longer a hoarder, rather a shop keeper. Hope to open early October,” the post says.
Judging by the comments on the post, it looks like shoppers will enjoy it. Says one: “I’ve seen your wardrobe and clothes hoarding room and I can say with certainty that this store is going to rule!!!”
Sounds promising. The website is still under construction but the Facebook page’s About section says: “vintage/ resale / thrift women & mens wearable vintage clothing/accessories.” With Hip & Thrifty opening a block up the avenue last year, this is adding some vintage shopping critical mass. Bring it on, right?
Let’s hope this business does better than the string of previous tenants, most recently Platinum Event Services, and before that it was the mish mash that was the A-1 Sunny gift shop.
