NVISION has gotten the green light to begin the shop transition to the new location soon, and I couldn’t be more excited to have an *end in sight* to this extremely long and arduous moving process! Moving is stressful enough, let alone during a global pandemic, resulting in extreme economic uncertainty, which is even more unsettling with 2020 being as fully WhacK as it is, but 2020 is almost gone. Almost.
Before I make this big change with the shop, and therefore may not see some of you as frequently, I want to give thanks to each and every one of you that has visited NVISION over the last 13 years, and became a part of it, what it is to me, and how I’ll remember it. 13 years ago I quit my job and took a huge leap of faith, during a recession no less, and opened NVISION on Leap Day 2008. And You all shared in the joy of my creation, in that location, whether as a paying customer, an exhibiting artist, an alterations client, a consignor, a model for a project, a collaborator on an event, or just browsing and chatting with your people before/after visiting The Comet. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
SO HERE’S THE DEAL GOING FORWARD :
Beginning in January 2021, NVISION will be located at 1546 Knowlton Street in Northside, a half block off of Hamilton Avenue, within a studio space in the Factory Events building (formerly known as Off the Avenue Studios), operating BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, offering clothing alterations and repair services, and selling vintage clothing online through the shop website and Instagram, and by way of private consultation.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU :
- For clothing alterations and repair : Simply leave a voicemail/text to 513-542-4577, or email [email protected], and tell me about your project, your timeline on which you need it completed, and best availability for an appointment; you can get a most accurate price quote for your project in person.
- For vintage clothing shopping by consultation : Simply leave a voicemail/text to 513-542-4577, or email [email protected], and tell me what you’re hoping to find/clothing category, your timeline/date on which you need to wear it, your *size, your taste criteria (likes/dislikes with regard to colors, prints, cuts…), and best availability for an appointment. Once we’ve established these criteria, I can get back to you and let you know if I have anything among my inventory that meet your criteria, and if so, we can schedule an appointment for you to see these items in person and try them on.
- For vintage clothing shopping on Instagram and through the website : It may be January before I can return to posting on Instagram or listing items online, it’s just too much to manage during a major move. However, when I do return to that, you’ll be able to follow new product posts on Instagram, and cross-posted to Facebook, where products will be posted first, and if they don’t sell right away, are then listed on the website. However there will likely be products listed on the website that don’t appear first on Instagram, but the most recent products listed are always at the top of each product category, so it’s easy to stay on top of that.
*Size is relative when using terms like Small/Medium/Large, or with women’s dress/pant sizes. Body measurements are always true-to-size by definition, and therefore, the best way to achieve the best fit. If you need assistance with taking your measurements, we can start your first consultation there.
>> MEANWHILE let’s all give thanks for every single little and big blessing that makes life easier, and for the tough stuff that shows us what we’re made of.
THE NEW FRONT DOOR OF NVISION IS
4575 Hamilton Avenue
Please note that NVISION has shrunken down to a single storefront for the time being, the one with the address of 4575 Hamilton Avenue, closer to Thunder-Sky Inc., instead of *4577 immediately next door to the Comet.
*There is now a new tattoo shop located at 4577 Hamilton, called Old Souls Collective, opening soon.
>> Best way to send inquiries and/or stay in touch and is to email [email protected], or leave a voicemail/text, 513-542-4577.
