Just in time for spring shopping, Crossroads unveils its big sister shop Fillmore & 5th where gently pre-owned high-end designer pieces at tempting prices are the name of the game.
On December 1st, San Francisco's own Crossroads Trading thanked their loyal fashionistas with a special event at their pop-up store nearby Union Square. Guests shopped new and gently used items while mingling with the Bay Area's most stylish denizens, taking the rare opportunity to shop the very best merchandise selected from all seven of Crossroads' Bay Area stores.
Last year, the retro rockabilly mecca, Bettie Page clothing, opened shop in the Haight. A little bird told me the girls there have some serious vintage swagger, so I thought I'd head over and check it out. I found (left to right) Jessica Goss, Liz Ireland, Mindy Gaines, and Hayley Griffin, done up in pin-up. These ladies are lucky enough to call their dress code a job perk.
Shotwell is out, well, moved, Crossroads is in. Though I was a fan of Shotwell being downtown accessible, I'll take recycled fashion in exchange. Berkeley-based Crossroads nabbed the Grant Avenue space for a summer pop-up shop.
It should come as no surprise seeing as how Crossroads already had their Buying Outpost at Shotwell every Thursday. The summer shop will operate their typical buy-sell-trade business, but for downtown types in a rush, dropping off your items and returning later to collect will certainly come in handy. Designer items are especially welcome.
It's time to seriously consider investing in a new spring wardrobe. There's just one thing -- SF closets aren't meant to house multiple season of clothing. Egads.
The solution? Buy-sell-trade shop, Crossroads, is throwing a pop-up this Thursday at Shotwell. Basically, it's time to pull a major Carrie Bradshaw and part with that dress you bought on sale last year, but have yet to wear. We all have one, and they all need to go.
Here's how it's going down. First, check out Crossroads' guide to selling your goods, for some spring cleaning tips. Next, sell your gently-used clothing and accessories to Crossroads for some cold hard cash. Then, reward yourself with a little somethin' somethin', for 10% off, at Shotwell.
