The Bleecker Street mall will soon be gaining another big-deal chain store. Racked sources whisper that handbag maven Kate Spade has nabbed a space at 400 Bleecker (at West 11th) for another one of her accessories boutiques. It's unclear if Spade will be overtaking Biography Bookshop or Eve Salon at present; if you have intel on the matter, please speak up. Those who want to note the continuing mallification of the West Village, please hit the comments.
