VIX Emporium | Local Crafts & Artful Gifts

Regular Hours: Open Tuesday-Friday 11-7, Saturday 10-6

Closed Sundays & Mondays

Come See Us at Go West Craft Fest, September 13, 11-5 at The Woodlands, 40th & Woodland in West Philadelphia.

VIX will close at 6 on Friday the 12th and the store will be closed on Saturday the 13th for the event.

Purveyors of unique gifts for all occasions –  jewelry, home wares, pottery, paper goods, art prints, baby gifts, natural bath & body products and much more. Made by independent artists & craftspeople, primarily in the Philadelphia region.

The Emporium is named for its location – “VIX” (with a bar over the V) is the Roman numeral for 5009, our address on Baltimore Avenue.

In the 1940 -60s, this shop was a millinery, or ladies’ hat maker. The space retains its original built-in lighted, mirrored cabinetry from that era, which is pictured as a border for this page. We’ve also collected some surviving hat labels, hat boxes and bags, marked J.M. Grumbine Millinery 5009 Baltimore Ave. West Philadelphia.
