This just in from a tipster: "A friend of mine told me about this new place that is reportedly opening soon—if not already, haven't been by in a while—called Mercado in Sunset Junction area. The girls that own it are former stylists and set designers, Janet Jackson/ Christina Ag, and have been shopping Paris/NY + South America in prep. One used to be a buyer for American Rag as well. Based on what she told me it should be pretty off the hook once it opens." Sounds incredibly promising, indeed. [Racked Inbox]
