We’re Moving to 124 Clement Street!

124 Clement_1951_sm

After 6+ years at our little shop on 6th Avenue, we are SO EXCITED to announce that we will be moving to Clement Street next month! We’ve been looking for a larger space on Clement for years and finally found 124 Clement. On the north side of Clement Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, it’s adjacent to Chapeau! and The Plough & Stars and on same block as the weekly Clement Street Farmers Market.

The new space is about 3 times larger than our current space! We’ll continue to stock your favorite items, add more products from makers we already carry, as well as introduce new brands and practical items we currently don’t have space for. We’re especially thrilled to have more space to host pop-ups, workshops, and events. The space is still under renovation but our goal is to be open by the first weekend of April and have a Grand Opening Party on Saturday, April 21st with DJ Andy Cabic of Vetiver.

Have Company Pop-Up

We are happy to announce that will be hosting Marlee from Have Company in our Oakland shop starting today, Wednesday, Jan. 25th through Friday, Feb. 24th!

Marlee stocks books, zines, tarot cards and more. Have Company is dedicated to providing space in many ways – for voices in the writings she offers and in person. If you already love what we have at Foggy Notion, you will absolutely love Marlee’s offerings as well.

Marlee moved to Oakland from Grand Rapids last summer, where Have Company was a brick and mortar shop that hosted events, workshops, performances, and more. We are proud to be her first physical space in California in this small way…so let’s welcome her warmly!

You’re invited to stop by for tea or just sit and chat during Marlee’s open hours of Weds. – Fri. from 11-7, and her goods will be available Saturdays and Sundays during our usual hours as well.

Marlee will also be present on Sunday, Feb. 12th during our monthly Macarthur Annex Second Sundays event.
