HippieChick passes along the news that, after 25 years at 346 E. Ninth St., Gregg Wolf is closing up his studios here between First Avenue and Second Avenue... The silversmith is moving to Florida. Despite some celebrity clients, he couldn't keep the business going in the current economy. (Among others, Wolf created jewelry for fashion designer-artist Stephen Sprouse in the 1980s.)
"And so another unique and wonderful East Village art business is lost to us all," says HippieChick. "I will miss him and his talent very much."
Thursday is his last day in business.
