Sara Selepouchin, the illustrator/designer behind the popular diagram-centric gift line Girls Can Tell, is ditching her current store space at 1725 S. 12th Street for a bigger, better spot at 1825 East Passyunk Ave. According to the East Passyunk Avenue Facebook page, the new store will be called Occasionette, a full service gift boutique stocking artisanal-made gifts for men, women, children and home, plus the entire line of Girls Can Tell wares. The new shop is slated to open sometime this spring.
Selepouchin has initiated a fundraiser on Lucky Ant to raise money for the new store opening, offering these words to potential donators: "We are growing out of our old location and opening Occasionette, our sister business and storefront on East Passyunk Ave. There we will continue our on-line business, expand our retail space, and offer a location for other small craft entrepreneurs to sell their products." The store owner has set a goal of $5,000, which would go toward renovating the new location. Stay tuned for updates about the soon-to-open store.
