We've covered the shuttering of spa chain Georgette Klinger at length, and although the story is far from over (the comments sections on the posts continue to rage), the company is officially, totally kaput. Roving photog Femia just sent in this snap of the exterior of the Klinger outpost at 501 Madison Avenue in Midtown papered with bankruptcy auction papers. According to Auction Biz, the sale took place last Tuesday. On the block: equipment such as massage beds, vaporizers, nebulizers(?), stone warmers as well as beauty products from brands like Bumble & Bumble, Keratase, Nars and MD.
