Quotes from Grant Petersen, Rivendell founder and owner:
What prompted Rivendell to open a pop-up in the Mission District?
We now have several tattoo’d staffers, and thought ‘Hey! they’d be perfect for a pop-up.’ John found it, talked to Dave; I’m just going along.
What can people expect to experience when they, visit the 24th Street location in early June?
Bikes, bags, hatchets that you can’t try out, clothing. Posters on the walls. We may get a lug mobile together by then. Background music (Swedish jazz). I’d like to have a fashion show, but….no access to models.
Think RBW might open something permanent in SF?
Probably not right away, but we’re looking into an Alamo store, and if that isn’t a money pit, if we can work out some bugs in it, we’d look at other locations. The tough part is staffing it. We don’t want regular people.
