Flax Art & Design still needs to find a new home, but there's really no rush. Third-generation store owner Howard Flax tells Hoodline that the lease expires at the end of 2015, but an actual move won't have to happen until mid-February of next year. Although Flax remains upbeat and positive that the store can find a new home in the city, the search remains ongoing for the art store that first opened on Kearny Street in 1938. If the worst is ever to happen and this SF institution finds itself homeless in the city, remember that there's a San Mateo outpost to hold you over with art supplies until the flagship finds a new place to land.
