      Thank you for your opinion, Negative Nancy.

      I generally have zero enthusiasm for more stores selling hip tchotchkies on the Ave, but I stumbled in here during Second Saturday and I really liked this place. No, I’m not in the market for a new (old) chess set, and yes, there a bunch of places that sell soap and candles, but Jeri seems super cool and I love the idea of drop-in game nights. I’ve always wanted to learn to play chess and my boyfriend won’t play Scrabble with me.

      I don’t know how sustainable the shop will be given that (I presume) it will need to sell the stuff within to say open…but I dig the community and social aspect Jeri’s trying to foster.

        Its really a shame… I read an article. I like what I’ve read.. I go down to the comments to talk about how I think its cool. Then I see idiots like you who only are trolling the comments sections saying something stupid like you just did… You have no life. You’re obsessed with me. I own you…
