A business with an emphasis on brick-and-mortar seems as dated as a flip phone in the age of Amazon. But Bulletin’s Ali Kriegsman and Alana Branston don’t see it that way. Bulletin, a Y Combinator company, is lowering the barriers to entry for its IRL marketplaces for designers and brands.
Bulletin last month opened a 2,000-square-foot SoHo unit where each designer pays about $2,500 a month to rent space. Kriegsman said the rent at the SoHo store or Bulletin’s 600-square-foot unit in Williamsburg can be lower if a brand uses less display space. Designers merchandise their own areas and control their inventory.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
