Earlier this year, the store closing signs arrived at Galleria J. Antonio at 47 Avenue A between East Third Street and East Fourth Street.
However, Galleria J. Antonio curator Jesse Gee decided to reopen two doors down at No. 43, where he will continue to sell arts and crafts and custom jewelry and watches…
As he told us at the start of the summer: "I can't stop working because I love what I do and STILL NEED A JOB, but — I must slow down and work fewer days and hours."
And now the new, smaller Galleria J. Antonio is open, as EVG regular Peter Brownscombe reports…
As for No. 47, we hear that the owners of the Essex Card Shop at 39 Avenue A are opening a second outpost.
