All Leather Moving Across the Street to 130 Orchard

The reason for the colorful floor-to-ceiling mess?  All Leather is relocating from across the street at 127 Orchard into this former headquarters of Giuseppe Uomo. For the last couple days, store employees have been busy transferring the goods from one space to another.

Giuseppe Uomo closed almost two years ago, and has pretty much remained dormant ever since. Except, of course, for the random graffiti tag or street art placement.  This latest move is essentially transferring the vendor vacancy. We asked a few of them what would become of the old space, but none knew for sure. Fret not, we’ll keep you posted!

And then There’s this Apartment with a Tub in the Kitchen
