New Shop Trunc Is All About Supporting Local Artisans
Co-Owners Dorothea Gamble and Dagmar Mitchell -- partners in life and business -- just opened lifestyle goods store Trunc in Northern Liberties.
They "seek the unique", but every item also has to meet three requirements in order to be shown:
1. It has to be handmade by a local artist.
2. It has to tell a story.
3. The artist has to host an event at Trunc so they can engage with the community!
