We'd like to share the news with you that after eight (8!) great years in the Mission, our SF store will be closing its doors at the end of this year, but not to worry, there will still be lots of LO to be had online and even in-person!
As some of you may know, we have been fortunate to have subleased our store space on Valencia Street from McSweeney's these past four years. During that time, they have expanded beyond capacity and their office is now jam-packed with busy folks working on all manner of neat things. One of the results is that their new non-profit, Scholar Match, needs our storefront space to open a drop-in center for students looking for help getting funding for college. While we would have loved to stay forever, we are glad to make way for a worthwhile cause.
This development also serves as a natural transition for us to focus full-time on our publishing efforts. While we will greatly miss seeing you at the SF store, we look forward to seeing you at new & different venues like craft fairs, conventions, and trunk shows (perhaps even a new storefront one day?). We are also still running our online shop and will work to incorporate more of your favorite goods from the store so you'll be able to visit us anytime online.
In the meantime, we still have lots planned for our remaining months in SF. On July 31st, we'll be debuting our brand new Lart C. Berliner “Alpine Songs Weekly Planner” at the store and at Renegade Craft Fair at Fort Mason. In August, East Bay artist Paul Morgan will be installing our most ambitious window display yet, with accompanying brand new prints. Not to mention we'll still be bringing in the coolest paper goods, illustrated books, and crafts we can find. So drop by and say hi—our shop wouldn't be the same without you! Thanks for all your support!
all our best,
yvonne & jeremy
