Clothespin is closing right before Christmas. It's a good news/bad news thing: it's proved to be a very successful launchpad for Gale Parker's own line of clothing, so she's shuttering the Melrose location to focus on that. In her downtown, providing she has any, she'll be working with a journo on her own biography. And once her line is designed and buyers are buying it and the book gets written, she'll open a flagship called Gale Parker; time and place TBD. Here's something that will take some of that sting away: the store is having a massive sale starting November 22, with items hitting up to 65% off.
