The Shape of Lies, the longtime jewelry store at 127 E. Seventh St. between Avenue A and First Avenue, is taking a break.
We'll let their website explain the situation:
GOOD NEWS: We have not lost our lease and we are not leaving the East 7th location. Starting March 1st we are taking an extended hiatus to rethink the future direction of the shop.
BAD NEWS: Several of our designers have fallen in love and moved on. Without these talented women The Shape of Lies will NOT specialize in jewelry next incarnation.
A sign on the storefront mentions a two-month closure.
Meanwhile, there's a sale going on. Go here for details. The shop opened here in 1979. As they say on their Facebook page, "Last of the live/work artists in the East Village."
