After six years in business, The Curiosity Shoppe on Valencia Street is closing up shop. Not even a bigtime collab with Target could keep the boutique, full of fun gifts, books, home decor and art, in business. But the husband-and-wife team, Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith, won't be sitting idle. They are creative directors for the majorly popular Pop-Up magazine.
Their last day in business will be February 17 at the store, and February 8 is your last day to order online. And of course there is always the silver lining sale: everything will be 20% off in-store and online. Catch them while you still can at 855 Valencia Street.
