It looks like Fassbinder, the little jewelry shop that disappeared from the West Village this summer, has gotten a happy ending. Fassbinder lost its lease at 39 Eighth Avenue when the landlords requested a six-month rent deposit. Now, the store has reopened around the corner at 632 Hudson Street between Horatio and Jane. In addition to the jewelry showroom, the new shop has a coffee bar and a gallery where it sells art and vintage furniture.
