Jillery, the jewelry and home accessories shop, is moving from its current home on East 10th Street to the corner of East Seventh Street and Avenue B, most recently home to Amaran.
Artist Jill Fagin launched her business in 1987. (Read more about that here.)
We originally reported that a yoga studio was taking over the space on Seventh and B, though that business was just one of the possibilities for the corner.
As for Jillery signing a lease here, Anna Pastoressa, president of the board of directors of the co-op at 184 E. Seventh St., told us the following:
Our co-op is very proud to have rejected chain stores, banks, bars and loud food establishments. We are proud to have chosen a local business like Jillery who has been in the neighborhood for many years and we wish Jillery great success in our corner.
After some cosmetic renovation on the space, Jillery is eyeing an end-of-August opening.
Thanks to Bill the libertarian anarchist for the initial tip!
