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.
I've been shopping there since 1991, the year Crossroads was born, and the ripe year of Blossom, to swoop up flower-powered knits and funky ensembs. Not much has changed. Enjoy your lunch break shopping.
Crossroads Summer Pop-Up Shop, 11am - 7pm everyday, 320 Grant Avenue between Bush and Sutter
