This afternoon as I was walking past JayWalk, the tiny gallery and gift shop that sells jewelry and locally made arts and crafts, I noticed a “For Lease” sign in the window.
A peek at their website revealed the news:
JayWalk is closing at the end of May 2010. The arrival of the owner’s son, Gus, has re-prioritized her life dramatically! Amy and Gus are on to new adventures now…thanks for five wonderful years.
I caught up with Amy Bush, the sole proprietor of JayWalk, who confirmed the closing date will be May 16.
“I’ve been there five years and had a wonderful, wonderful time,” Bush said.
You can still pick up JayWalk’s unique wares during the next two weeks. Through May 9, everything is 10% off. From May 12-16, local art will be 10-15% off and everything else will be 10-50% off.
It will be interesting to see what moves in next, as the storefront is a compact 240 square feet.
It’s already a rough month for businesses on 34th, with Precocious Toys on the corner of 34th and Cherry also shutting its doors this past week.
