we had a little celebration/goodbye party for rena tom last night, who is heading out of brooklyn to set up a second rare device shop in san francisco. there seems to be a mass movement to san francisco lately! or at least a lot of people talking about moving.
the current rare device shop in park slope will become a joint shop of sodafine and rare device— a great combination! sodafine, owned by designer erin weckerle, is my favorite store for seeing one-of a kind pieces by local designers. best wishes to both of you!
i’m excited to check out the new “soda-device” soon, and also the new rare device next time i’m back in san francisco with my family.
