As mentioned previously, there's been some retail shuffling and shuttering on the Eastside. After major damage due to flooding, essential boutique Flounce Vintage vacated their Echo Park digs of 11 years for a new home just outside of Silver Lake that's more "safe and dry," as owner Lisa Gerstein notes on her GoFundMe page.
Now located at 718 N Virgil Ave in East Hollywood's Virgil Village, the Shiva Rose-backed haven of lacy Edwardian gowns, frilly boho frocks, chiffon cocktail dresses, vintage knick-knacks and more is expected to open its bigger and brighter space Saturday, April 19th, just a door away from healthy eatery SQIRL. Could this be another Perfect Saturday haunt?
