The self-described “destination for all things cute and trendy” is presently on the move. That would, of course, be the Pixie Market at 100 Stanton Street, a well-regarded boutique that offers trends on the cheap. A sign in the window advertises a deep discount on all items in the teensy store.

Co-owner Gaelle Drevet confirms that the Pixie Market will soon relocate to a much larger space in an undisclosed location. But 100 Stanton Street will apparently remain in her hands. “We have a new project coming in the same location,” Drevet tells us. Details on the replacement venture are not yet known. We’ll keep you posted.

Gaelle Drevet and Magda Pietrobelli first conceived of the idea while on a holiday to India. The Pixie Market was the result, and opened at 100 Stanton in 2006.
