Looks like it could be this pop-up shop/subscription service getting a permanent home in EAV:

http://www.sockfancy.com

Same recessed strip where cupcake/record store used to be.

I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity but they've always worked for me.

Granted it's not the classiest business model around, but I appreciate the fact that his business seems to be a happy ending to what could have been a much less uplifting story.

I have to admit, I'd be more likely to buy socks from the Sock Man than Sock Fancy.

I never realized that Sock Fancy was associated with Brother Moto, that the socks left when the motorcycles were forced out. 

Anyway, they were both vandalized over the holiday - two-gentrifying-boutiques-vandalized-thanksgiving
