Like their news-bin brethren, you’ll find abandoned newsstands scattered throughout downtown San Francisco. I’ve been a fan of re-using newsbins, but I hadn’t really though about doing anything larger until I saw what the folks at Colpa Press had created on the corner of 6th St and Market. Basically, they’ve rented one of these tiny newsstands and turned into a place to buy magazines… and posters… and records and tapes… and all sorts of cool shit.
Their pop-up shop, called Edicola, features a beautiful collection of hand-bound zines and art. I’ve been thinking about doing another zine sometime soon, and this shop was full of inspiring works from various photographers. If you get the chance, I highly recommend checking this shop out for yourself.
