Sunday marks PucciManuli's last day in the Ardmore Farmers Market, but the children's gift and toy store won't be moving too far away.
Owner Carrie Kohs has signed a lease for 35 Cricket Ave. in Ardmore, Kohs told Patch on Friday.
The new space, formerly leased by Viking Pastries, will be open in mid-March. (The pastry shop is consolidating from two storefronts to one, Kohs said.)
“We just have a tiny little space in the market, and it’s been great—but having a bigger space will allow me to do a lot more things, like kids activities, trunk shows and other events,” she explained.
PucciManuli began seven years ago as an online-only business, with pop-up shops at horse shows and charity shows. Kohs moved into the Ardmore Farmers Market about two years ago.
The larger space will allow Kohs to expand her collection of children’s items— which includes handcrafted puzzles, kaleidoscopes, stuffed animals and more—as well as stock more home and general gift items for adults, she said.
Kohs hopes to have the store up and running by mid-March, but you can also check out PucciManuli beforehand at the Philadelphia Flower Show from March 2-10. Sunday, the store's last day in the Ardmore Farmers Market, PucciManuli will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
