Hipster Home Needs Your Help

From the Hipster Home email list:
Hipster Home will be featured on the TV Show FYI Philadelphia (ABC 6) and we need customers in the store to help with the shoot. This is your big shot to get discovered........... well, OK, but at the very least you can be on a TV show and help a local business. Tomorrow only (Tuesday 2/23/10) (UPDATE: Shoot will be held on Thursday 2/25/10) at around 12 noon we will be offering a 30% discount on any non-sale items (excludes Gus and Geneva). Not a bad deal huh? We think it's pretty awesome. So if you've been thinking about stopping into Hipster, for any reason, then this is a great opportunity to save some big bucks. Don't miss out!

The FYI TV shoot went off without a hitch. There were plenty of people there to shop (thank you to everyone that helped out). The show airs Saturday March 6th at 7pm on Channel 6 (ABC) and re-airs on Sunday. Thanks again.

Cheers!

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…
