Essex Card Shop is now open in its new Avenue A home



As previously noted, Essex Card Shop has moved from its longtime home at (the city-owned) 39 Avenue A one block to the north at 47 Avenue A between Third Street and Fourth Street...

The new outpost is now open, and EVG contributor Stacie Joy stopped by the space where co-owner Jayant Patel was at the front counter...



...and here's a look around as the staff continues to stock the stationery shop, which will also include a few of the household items that the previous store here — 99¢ and Up Magic Deals! — carried...













... and from Saturday, a few photos of the old storefront being packed up...

These shops are blessings. If the technotalitarians have their way, you will have to buy all this online always.

Wow! Now get rid of that ugly generic awning and put that gorgeous sign back!

I purchased a couple of cool coffee table design books in 2010 when they were located on 7th and A. Always thought it was a cool, inventive, and somewhat underrated store. Their presence will be missed here moving forward.
