If you are not on the mailing list, you missed quite a newsletter yesterday! To recap:

I (Rena) am moving to California in August - but Rare Device in Brooklyn will remain. With the help of Erin at Sodafine, who will share the storefront with me, we will keep going and make sure there is a presence in Park Slope. Erin will be bringing her handmade and eco-friendly clothing in...this means that all clothing currently in the shop must go, and has been marked down 20-40%.

The online store will remain open (we may close for a week during the cross-country move) and as soon as we can find a storefront in San Francisco, we'll open our second shop. All tips for available and shop spaces in the Bay Area are appreciated :)

That's it for now - don't forget to go to Renegade today and tomorrow, and see our table at the 7th Ave Street Fair tomorrow.

  • There’s a bit of an “area” in North Beach on upper Grant St. with some vacancies (corner of Grant and Green {I think} for one). Might be worth checking out. Welcome to SF!

  • Wow! I used to live across the street from Rare Device on 7th, and I’m so excited you’ll be moving to lovely SF! I miss Brooklyn still (esp Laila’s), but San Francisco is a wonderful city with lots of fabulous neighborhoods and shop opportunities. I shop (too) often and have plenty of space/locale tips – can’t wait to check out Rare Device west!
