An Exciting Announcement!
After a month of negotiations, followed by several weeks of demolition behind doors and windows covered with brown paper, I'm ready to let you all in on Parsimonia's next big step! As you can see by the illustration above (created by the incredibly talented Michelle of Creature Type), I'm opening a brick-and-mortar store! (Yay!).
Doors will hopefully open in early August at 3194 S. Grand in Tower Grove, in between the barber shop and Absolutli Goosed, and across from Gelateria del Leone and Pho Grand. We'll also be diagonal from Rocket Century, which, if you love mid-century and you live in St. Louis, you probably already know about. So shoppers will be able to stop by Parsimonia for vintage clothing, vintage accessories and vintage home decor; then hop across the street for your MCM fix; then head a couple blocks down to The Upcycle Exchange for vintage crafty materials!
Now that I've let you in on this exciting secret, be prepared for lots of photos on Facebook and Instagram of our renovation progress (we've been taking down two drop ceilings that have been covering a beautiful tin one for 30 years!).
Oh, and don't think that Holly will be putting up her hitch! We'll still be bringing vintage love all over St. Louis streets, at special events and an up-and-coming mobile mall in the South Grand Business District. And she'll of course still be available for private shopping appointments and parties!
Needless to say, I'm all kinds of nervous and excited, and I hope to see you all come through our new doors in the days that lie ahead! :-)
