On the Move

In a row of useful businesses, a shuffle is in process.  The Park Slope Veterinary Center is hopping from one side of Leopoldi's hardware to the other, to a building which had been stalled mid renovation for years.  No indication what's coming in at 413.  Vet center, hardware, supermarket, housewares store - all solid, functional stuff.  I miss the office stationary store that used to be on this block: a treasure house of ledger book, envelope, hanging folder, ink pad, office stamp, graphing paper, and stack upon stack of lined notebooks in a vast assortment of size and pleasingly humdrum shades.  The smell was intoxicating. It was replaced by a cardio vascular imaging center.  Leopoldi's has always been our go-to hardware store for many years & the guys there are the best.
