Ritual Ritual has come a long way since its inception as Concrete Polish way back when. Yesterday during the annual 2nd Street Festival, the boutique debuted in its new NoLibs space at 819 North Second Street, formerly home to the gone-but-not-forgotten Arcadia.
It was just a tiny, two-block move, but totally worth it: The new address provides more room for Ritual Ritual's line-up of local and indie designers—think men's and women's apparel and accessories by Radlands Clothing, Cult Classic Goods, Bianca Rachele and The Decades Hat Co., not to mention the jewelry and apparel from store co-owners Angela Monaco and Dominique Negron. And as we mentioned a couple months ago, the space will double as the Ritual Ritual Arts Community Hub, a collaborative space that'll offer arts/crafts/jewelry classes and other hands-on creative fun.
