We at SPECIMEN were pleasantly surprised, actually overwhelmed, by the large turnout for our pop-up store last month at Scanga’s old studio in Bay Park. In response, we have decided to do it again! Same location but with different objects. This time we have a theme: “Deals on Wheels.” We will be highlighting objects having to do with transportation and mobile fun, such as artist skate decks and children’s vintage vehicles (scooters, tricycles, and race cars.) Artist skate decks by Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Ryan McGinness and others will be included. The “Deals on Wheels” sale will take place on Saturday, October 23rd from 9:00am to 5:00pm and on Sunday, October 24th from 11:00am to 5:00pm at 4130 Napier Street.
UPCOMING POP UP SHOPS…
While we are on a roll, we are giving a heads up for our next temporary sale that will pop up Thanksgiving weekend. Save the dates for Friday, November 26th and Saturday, November 27th! We hope to see you on Black Friday and the following Saturday.
Specimen is a store created by Mark Quint, owner of Quint Contemporary Art gallery in San Diego, CA. Specimen’s inventory (other than the art) is primarily used and vintage, but there are some new items slipped in every so often. Specimen runs weekly specials, highlights guest selections, buys and trades objects and maintains a wish list for our collector friends.
