STAG Venice Is Now Open!!

VENICE_A

After nearly five years operating solely out of Austin, Texas (and online), we’re extremely excited to have opened our second retail location in Venice, California a week ago today!! It’s been a long time coming, but we’re officially up and running!

Inside the building at 1338 Abbot Kinney, you’ll find a varied selection from up-and-coming brands alongside more established designers – similar to Austin. In addition, we’re mixing in small batch goods from local craftsmen like Weiss Watches and Made Solid leather works, and we’ve got some offerings that are exclusive to the STAG Venice location as well  such as eyewear from optics legends Vuarnet and MOSCOT.

Alongside the apparel and accessories, we’re showcasing bold original artwork from talented compatriots like, among others, Brian SalviJackie Lee Young, and our friends at LAND. The pieces are arranged among unique vintage furniture finds sourced from all over California and beyond, and we’ve got a large selection of vintage rugs, textiles, and jewelry to go along with the furniture.

The 3,500 square foot interior pays homage to the industrial and architectural history of the building with its original ceiling beams, red brick walls, and leaded storefront windows and includes a 450 square foot loft designated for special events and collaborations. Our first shop-in-shop features the vintage selections of the one and only Lot, Stock, and Barrel who are based out of downtown Los Angeles and will be in store for another month or so.

Our goal with STAG Venice is to create an environment that feels like it’s always been a part of the landscape — a comfortable, inviting space that features local elements while pulling in aspects of Austin as well. Whether it’s local art or leather goods or locally made furniture, we’ve made it a point to embrace our surroundings while also offering a carefully edited selection of apparel, accessories, gifts, and apothecary products. We can’t wait to see how the shop evolves.
