goodbye stel's




i was so sad to hear that stel's was closing. jon and tina are two of the nicest people i've met. they opened right before i moved to cambridge for grad school, tina had her twin girls right before i had leon, and now they're closing shop one year after we moved to toronto. it really does feel like the end of an era.

the shop is having a huge closing sale starting today until june 30th. alas for us online shoppers, it's slim pickings on the webshop. i did, however, order a ton of things for leon and elias from monkey and the bug, the children's shop inside stel's.

i wish i were in boston so i could stop by the store one last time and say goodbye to all the lovely people there.

:( I went today, and they had quite a few APC items. A lot of dresses from various designers. I scored a nice, light wool APC blazer coat for 80 bucks but would need to wait until the weather cools down to 50s. Everything is 75% off. They might offer more deductions when closing day nears.

That's very saddening. It was a very cute store tucked in Boston. Stores in New York didn't have the same kind of shopper vitality as before either when I went last week.
