Sole Survivor has been STL MADE since 1968. The first shop opened in St. Louis in the 70's. Through the years, there were a few hit and miss locations interrupted by some hippie-style cross country travelling, finally settling permanently in St. Louis in 1985. The store and studio have made several moves from it's beginnings on South Euclid, to the Loop, back to the CWE on North Euclid, to the current location since 2015, at 7358 Manchester Rd in Maplewood., MO.
