Just when we thought Wynwood couldn’t get any cooler, it goes ahead and totally ups the ante with the recent opening of Wynwood Shop. See?
Formerly known as Wynwood Alley, the popular monthly art-watching experience and street-shopping destination found a permanent home last week while the rest of us were on Hurricane Irma clean-up duty. Think one-of-a-kind art, quirky jewelry, fresh-baked goods, off-the-beaten-path items for the home and more — all wrapped in a cozy, come-touch-me vibe.
“We have always been about bold independent artists, unique brands, and new sounds, and this time we will be combining all those elements into a physical permanent space. Wynwood Shop will pay homage to our street roots — it’s definitely going to be an awesome new aspect of the Wynwood experience,” Wynwood Shop Founder and Director Diana Gonzalez says.
Thirty vendors are peppered throughout the painting-swathed space. Check out colorful art pieces by artists such as Delvs102, Rasterms, Atomiko, Cecilia Freire, Flmingo, Renda Writer, Gons and Joey Texiera. Scoop up local fashions by Marcela Lopez, WA Lamps’ skateboard deck lamps, TV Head Co.’s sunnies, OM Tea’s artisanal loose leaf teas, and baubles by Marion Valero, Shine Design, Daddy Daughter Jewelry, Trinkets D and Arboleya Morena Art. Locally loved photographer Bridges Aderhold’s eye-catching images are up for keeps, too.
Has all this shopping talk got you hungry? Fret not as the shop features an on-site Mexican food truck, Twice Butter, as well as Bulgogi Shack — a Korean BBQ and poke mash-up. Because… food is your best friend.
