Hipster Home is Opening in Chestnut Hill

As many of you have surely heard by now, Hipster Home is relocating their store to Chestnut Hill this fall. As arguably the anchor retail store of the 'Phoenixville's Renaissance', they will surely be missed.

Co-owner David Friday posted the following note about the move to his Facebook account over the weekend:
It's with heavy hearts that I have to confirm rumors that Hipster Home will be relocating our store to Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia. In mid-September Hipster Home will open our doors in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania at 8236 Germantown Avenue directly across the street from the Chestnut Hill Hotel at the bottom of the hill but until then we will remain open at our current location. This new space is currently occupied by a friend and mentor store of ours called Host who will be relocating to a larger space in Chestnut Hill. This has been a long painstaking decision and it doesn't come easy to move our store.

Many of you who know us personally know that we also live in Phoenixville and we absolutely love our town. Those facts have not changed and will not change. Phoenxiville is an awesome town and we have seen remarkable progress and have become a true destination point so we should all be proud of our downtown. The fact of the matter is that Phoenixville has become a small restaurant district (which is a good thing) but retail shopping, which I liken to hunting, is a completely different animal then restaurant strolling and for us to accomplish our goals we need to be in a competitive retail district.

Hipster Home has made tremendous strides in 3 years on Bridge Street and the residents of this town have had a huge part in that growth. Phoenixville has helped us get to our current status of minor success and now we need to take the next steps to further grow our business into a competitive retail store on a larger stage. If we want to stay viable then we need to expand our client base and move into a more retail centric area. We feel Chestnut Hill and the proximity to downtown Philly gives us this opportunity.

Our hearts will always be here in Phoenixville. Our foundation was laid here in Phoenixville. Our first steps were here in Phoenixville. Our small successes were right here in downtown Phoenixville. This is our home (and our comfort zone) but sometimes you need to push off the island to discover new worlds. Please be proud of the successes we have all created in our humble little store. We need everyone to continue to support Hipster Home. We still need you now more then ever.

Please stop into the store during the next few months and wish us luck and please continue to support your local merchants. Also remember that you can still shop on our web store at www.HipsterHome.com and everything that is in our store is in our online store and we ship for free so you won't miss a beat. We will do our best to realize our goals as a business and hopefully we can make you proud along the way. We hope that all of you will visit us in our new location and brag to the residents of Chestnut Hill that Hipster Home is your hometown store. It may also help if you bring a bottle of wine....... LOL!

Please continue to support us and remember we love you guys! Thank you everyone.

Cheers!

Best of luck to Dave & Linsday with the move!

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
