"We're going to be doing the same stuff we've always done, its just going to be a little bit more of a addition to what we already do. Because we already carry vintage stuff and Arizona stuff and will continue to do so," Kvetko says. "Basically, the Go-Kat-Go name will still be around but we're branding that out and doing T-shirts and other clothing. But Jackalope [Trading Post] will be the name of the place."

She says that Swanberg will also be relocating his screen-printing to the location, which is between the Trunk Space and Bikini Lounge.

"We just wanted a little bit of a change of scenery and a little bit of a change of name and open things up to some new businesses," Kvetko says.

The pair are currently planning on holding a soft opening for Jackalope Trading Post on Saturday, February 2, but also say there's a "strong possibility" that they might open their doors a day earlier for next month's First Friday on February 1.

"At this point we're just focusing on the move and getting everything under one name," Kvetko says.
