On the 17th, we cracked open the doors of our newest chapter, a retail location in SF. With 45 minutes to guests, we were still painting the facade, breaking down boxes, and pricing shoes. With five minutes to go, we simply cleared the space and got ready for magic. Attached are pictures of that magic: our friends, family, new neighbors and fans. Welcome to 1360 Valencia Street.
We are a small brand, doing what we do, and how we do it. We make mistakes and we learn, we grow and we leap again. But we do this for our fans and due to the support of our fans. We are humbled that so many came out, and want to give a special shout out to our friends from Seattle, Portland, NYC, Boise, Los Angeles, and beyond who made the trek to celebrate our second retail location. Located at 1360 Valencia street we are now open for business! Shoes for all!
The opening night, and following day were so insane, we didn't get to stop and make an official toast, so, here goes: "Without you here in this room, we would still just be a few logo concepts and some ideas on some incomplete google docs. Thank you for the unending support for me and my brand. To our SF clients---THANK YOU! (about here is where I start crying) We are so happy to meet you in person and to become a part of the amazing shopping and style scene in your city. We started this brand 3.5 years ago, not knowing what would be ahead, we still don't know, but we know its gonna be cute. THANK YOU FOR COMING OUT ! (breaks bottle of champs on front door!)
