Dema Boutique Celebrates 15 Years on Valencia Street

Dema Grim's eponymous clothing boutique has been on Valencia Street since before there was Ritual Coffee (their current next-door neighbors), 826 Valencia and Paxton Gate. When Dema opened, New College was just down the street, X21 was packed with dusty, midcentury-modern furniture, the sidewalks were narrow and bumpy and the Mission was generally a scarier place. It's hard to remember such a time, isn't it? Grim has been offering up her own modern interpretations of vintage classics, plus brands including Wendy Maves, Michael Stars and Level 99, for 15 years. On Saturday from 6 to 10pm they're celebrating with 20 percent off, Mission Minis cupcakes (busy folks this week!), bubbly, and live music. To longevity!
