As Local Honey enters into its last month of residence at the Linden Avenue house I'm becoming more than a little sentimental. For those of you who haven't heard yet... the house we have loved for the past 4 years and filled with countless amazing memories, has been sold and I'm relocating the shop to a new home. Though it's sad to leave, this is an incredibly exciting thing! I am very optimistically looking onward and working mondo endurecido. Given the time constraint there has been a lot to do. The past 2 months have been a whirlwind of planning, debating, negotiating, organizing, barely sleeping some nights, and typing my tiny fingers off. But after what felt like the mental equivalent to birthing a yeti... I signed on the line and made it official! Local Honey will take residence at 2009 Belmont Blvd. the first week of January 2011!
Now, this location is BIG. Not only is LH setting up shop, but also menswear aficionados Tidwell and Perryman, an atelier for White Rabbit and Jamie and the Jones, and a sewing school run by Alexia Abegg offering beginning to advanced classes in sewing, drafting, and quilting. The store will boast more stock than ever in a spacious, polished new home and become a more tenacious purveyor of local designer garments and accessories. I'm beyond thrilled. Until then, we are still open for business at the Linden house through the end of the year and holiday shopping is in full swing! We will be hosting this years Christmas Soiree on December 17th and packing the shop with tons of locally made goodies and vintage giftables. So stay tuned for more details on the party and help us send 1207 Linden off proper.
