Kristen speaks with two longtime friends, Tony Trov and Johnny Zito,  Co-Owners of South Fellini. South Fellini has become an East Passyunk Avenue and Philadelphia staple. It’s THE place to go for great Philly merch, or “apparel for the Philadelphia lifestyle”. You may have seen their stuff worn by Bryce Harper? Check them out for great t-shirts, pins, hats and more. Be sure to visit their brand new store in Philly’s new Fashion District. In it, they have THE MANNEQUIN from the movie Mannequin, modeling their wares and available for selfies.
