I'm excited to walk around once it opens but I just don't see how they're going to sell enough to make such a large store a viable proposition...the combination of the economic downturn and our horrifically high sales tax makes me wonder who's going to shop there.

Everrryyyything at Anthro eventually goes on sale, it's true. I never buy anything full price there, because I know in a few weeks it'll be marked down. Well, that new space will have plenty more room for sales racks...

New vintage store Kokorokoko celebrates the '80s, '90s and even the '00s



Ukie Village just got a(nother) dose of hipster cool, this time of the "vintage" variety. While it seems somehow wrong to refer to '80s and '90s fashions as vintage, Kokorokoko, a fun-loving, tongue-in-chic resale shop specializing in clothes and accessories from those bygone eras, revels in it. And with designers repeatedly referencing those heydays (think neon colors, leggings, etc.), this is a store that's time has come.
Sift through such stellar finds as Body Glove surfer-boy T-shirts, curious accessories and fabulous footwear, as well as designer pieces from the likes of Fendi, anna sui issey miyaki and Anne Klein. Kokorokoko owners Sasha Hodges and Ross Kelly also carry new designs by up-and-coming artists, such as purses and accessories from kristena witherspoon, hand-printed T-shirts and scarves from kiyomi kimbleand recycled fabric handbags from danny volk.
Kokorokoko, 1112 N. Ashland Ave., 773-252-6996

this is their website

Tim Gunn will be appearing at the Kate Spade on 56 Oak St. April 26 [4-6pm], but you must purchase at least $100 worth of merchandise for a photo.

^How is the store? I haven't seen many photos of the interior. It's double the size of the old store isn't it?
