East Village Landmark Love Saves the Day Will Close Sunday

OMG, you, too, moved to New York because of Desperately Seeking Susan (in which Madonna trades her leather pyramid jacket for rhinestone boots at the shop Love Saves the Day)?! Well, you can cry right along with us, then: After nearly twenty years on 7th Street and Avenue A Second Avenue and a few months of closing-out sales, the iconic purveyor of all manner of wacky kitsch will finally exist only at its sister shop in New Hope, Pennsylvania. As Jeremiah's Vanishing New York puts it, "That's a long way to go for Star Wars action figures and rubber poop." [EV Grieve]
