Frances May really doesn't have to worry about getting lonely anymore. After the closure, in rapid succession, of both Narcisse and Covet, the shopping hub known as the West End was starting to look a little lean, but things are picking up again with just-opened new neighbors Pinkham Millinery and Parallel. And now, N Mississippi vintage/Western shop Animal Traffic has announced that they too are coming to the neighborhood with a second location at 429 SW 10th. According to owner Tom Erikson, "The new location will feature vintage along with modern items from Pendleton, Forage, Duluth Packs, Minnetonka, and many more. There will be a strong focus on classic Americana styles and Made in America brands from footwear to apothecary, as well as locally made goods."
Get your first peek at the February 18 soft opening, and an official grand opening slated for the evening of March 1.
