In what appears to be another sign of a faltering economy, and following the January death of its owner Parke Meek, prop and curiosity house Jadis is closing its doors and selling off its stock. Here is an article from the LA Times telling us more about it. Jadis (and its sister store Paris 1900) are landmarks in the Santa Monica/Venice corridor. There will be a big hole on Main Street.
Sale begins tomorrow at 11AM. All you steampunks out there, put it on your calendar!
