Closing sale signs are now up at Waga, 22 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.
The shop sells handmade goods — from jewelry to bags and leather belts — primarily from West Africa.
Waga seems like it has been here longer than its 2001 debut... and is one of those unique places that gave this block a little charm.
I'm sorry to see this place go--and yes, I swear it was there in the 1980s when my friends and I hung out on St. Mark's as teenagers! Definitely bought some great bags there.
Never shopped there but so sorry to see them go. They have been a part of St Marks Place forever (or so it seems to me). Another nail in the East Village coffin.
What next to fill the space I bet another weed dispensary or another Asian tea place you something unique and different
Bring back Dojo!
