Look across the street. Above the Wasabi restaurant. The windows? They look dark. The familiar white lettering on the windows is gone. No shadows of bolts of fabric, no people bustling around inside... Isn't that where Rosen & Chadick was? Oh no!!! Wait! Where have they gone?
Well, if you go over to the entrance (as I did) and ask, the doorman will hand you a card.
Okay, I'm lying. I knew they were moving, but was sworn to secrecy until the move was complete, because you know how complicated these deals can be.
Anyway, today I visited the new Rosen & Chadick space.
They are busy unpacking and setting things up beautifully, organizing their merchandise neatly in this roomy, easily browsable environment. This spot feels good, and it gives you a fresh perspective on familiar merchandise if you have been to their first and second store locations over the past 50 years or so. Do visit them in this new space, merely a stone's throw away from the old one. They will be happy to greet you there!

|Fabrics are now organized by likely end use - makes browsing easier!|
Stay tuned for a quick update to this post coming shortly! I'm gonna show you something made with their to-die-for fabric...
