The owners of Fair Folks & a Goat announced on Facebook Friday that they will open a cafe-boutique-gallery on East 11th Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
The space is owned by the husband-wife team of Aurora and Anthony Mazzei. Here's a description of their concept via the FF&G website:
Fair Folks & a Goat is a creative company, specializing in filling spaces with stories through design, art, hospitality, and event programming.
They also have a cafe-boutique space on West Houston, which opened last fall.

Per the Times on the opening:
A visitor surveyed the Houston Street space with an eye toward consumption: the Haynes mirror with brass wall mounts ($2,800) by the Brooklyn-based Egg Collective, a groovy set of white-ceramic speakers ($450) by Joey Roth, a carved blue bowling pin ($110) by Jason Boone.
For $25 a month, members get unlimited coffee and espresso, and discounts on the art and design, which will rotate every month or so. But you don’t have to be a member to buy what they sell.
