Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith, have decided to close up their quirky and beloved Mission design mecca, The Curiosity Shoppe. They've stated it's not for financial reasons, but rather, that's it's just time to move on and embrace other creative endeavors (Pop-Up Magazine, for one).
With a city (and then some) who will miss them dearly, plus a major Target collaboration under their belts, we'd say they have a lot to be proud of as they close up the 'Shoppe.
So now it's time to go buy some really rad (and mostly local) stuff while you still can. The entire collection is full of curiouser-and-curiouser delights and now, it's all 20% off.
Hurry though -- the e-store closes tonight at midnight, while the Mission storefront (855 Valencia St.) will remain open through Sunday, Feb. 17.
