Before venturing to Venice for that sunny Rose Avenue adventure, know that your itinerary will have one less stop. After five years on the "once-seedy" stretch, sunny lifestyle boutique The Golden State Store is moving to another stroll-worthy haunt, Lincoln Avenue.
Shop owner and third-gen Californian Stephanie Stuart reveals on Facebook that the store will debut its relocated Venice digs this spring. "I've been so fortunate to call that little garden home for five years now and loved all the sweet souls that passed through my door, especially the ones who could stay and chat a while...you know who you are!" she writes.
Located next to Superba Food + Bread, the new space will continue to operate as an ode to its home state, stocking apparel, accessories, home goods, and more from Golden State-based designers and labels. Once open, expect to find merch from edgy eco-friendly boot brand Pskaufman, Topanga Canyon's Heyoka Leather, Cali Dreaming swimwear, retro framemakers Raen Optics, and outdoor decor by sculptor Maurice Connelly, and much more.
This post has been updated with the store's new address.
