IN-STORE HAPPENINGS

Asmbly Hall x Republika SF, Project to build Nation's 1st Artisan Filipino Marketplace October 28 2019

Hi Friends! We've got a passionate project we are working on and would love to share with you all...
.
In 2011 – including the years preceding and about 5 years after, was our LEARNING phase for ASMBLY HALL. We learned who our customer was, learned about the neighborhood we opened in, learned about the type of product to carry and in-store experiences our customers gravitated towards. To be honest, we’re still learning – everyday is a new day.
.
Between 2016 and 2018 was our EARNING phase – we got over the 3 and 5 year hump, the additional income from the shop would be split between savings for Harlow and her education, new inventory and eventually, with the help of you all, our second store Asmbly Hall - Divisadero St.
.

2019 and beyond is our SERVING phase. We want to take everything we’ve LEARNED, what we’ve EARNED, and SERVE those who are looking to make a change in their community.

.

ASMBLY HALL, along with Filipino-owned businesses Arkipelago Books and Straight Up Bar+Beverage, as well as the crew behind UNDISCOVERED SF and Kultivate Labs, are partnering together to bring you Republikasf – an exciting, new, innovative retail venue and experience, as well as business incubator – bringing Filipino businesses back to the SOMA Pilipinas Cultural District. In addition to the three anchor businesses listed, REPUBLIKA SF will also house four rotating pop-up businesses. Our mission and goal is to offer a platform in which we can help guide, refine, as well as provide the tools and confidence to help those pop-ups flourish into their own brick-and-mortar or online service.

.

However, we cannot do this alone, and we are reaching out to you - our community, our network - for your assistance. We would like to ask you to be a part of history and help the collective launch REPUBLIKA SF. Any donation counts, and there are rewards for every level of donation. Please visit ‪republikasf.com‬ for additional information on the space and the cause. Also, please watch the video below for an intimate look into the ‘Who, What, When, Where and Why’ that is REPUBLIKA SF.

.

We’ve got a few days to reach our goal, and I know those down with the community and culture will help us get there.

.

An investment in REPUBLIKA SF is an investment in the current and future generations of entrepreneurs, artists and activists, as well as a Thank You to the previous generations that paved the way for us to take risks, dare to dream and color outside the lines. Thank you all for your continued and future support!

One Love,
Ronnieboy, Tricia and Harlow

New Year, New Brands, New Collabs!! January 23 2019

Happy 2019 Friends!
Hope your New Year is off to a great start!
.
Last year, we had our hands full with the
opening of our 2nd location on Divisadero St.
With learning how to juggle 2 shops,
we admittedly did not have enough time
to post new blog stories, or even share
new goods quick enough on the website-
they sold out at the shops before
we even had time to put them online!
.
This year will be full of new priorities for us,
new collabs, new brands, fun new goods, and
making time for the website!
.
And speaking of collabs...
.
A lil’ sneak leak of our DISTRESS SF hat collab
with our friends from SD, Original Goodstock.
.
Welcome To The Bay, Gang!
.

.
Dropping mid-March 2019 and just in time
for SF Giants Opening Day..
.
Stay posted for additional drop/release info,
product and process details,
and how this collaboration came to fruition.
.
And stay tuned for more new-new friends,
we've got more surprises up our sleeves this year!

still dashing around town trying to find that perfect outfit??

Our first outfit is for our edgy rocker chica, or
our normally non-edgy gals daring to be different..

The star of this outfit is our Wild Belle Maxi Dress,
a super cute spaghetti strap geo-print maxi.
This sexy number paired back with
a floppy sunhat, round sunnies,
and a pair of black booties screams hot hot hot
while providing ultimate comfort
while you dance the night (and day) away!
 .
The next two looks teeter on the sweeter side
with a soft sexy look for our boho babes..

The super cute Belmont Woven Top and honey colored
Shiva Skirt make a perfect pair together.
Add in a white bralette finished off with strappy brown sandals
and you'll be the darlingest dame at the festival..
  .
Our last look is the super comfy shift Jasmine dress..

This dress is a knockout in itself!
Pop in a pair of neutral-colored ankle booties and
fun silver or turq colored rings
and you've got yourself
an effortlessly perfect festival fit.
