West Village: A tipster sends word that small jewelry store Fassbinder is in danger of closing. The report: "Fassbinder, the nifty handcrafted jewelry boutique at 39 8th Ave. (by Jane Street) is closing...or has closed. The new landlord required a whopping 6-month deposit on the lease renewal. Fassbinder has already vacated its shop, and is camping out in a friend's space, a tiny gallery, a few doors down. Going out of biz signs all over the windows..." We're unable to confirm a closure at this time, as calls to the store are going unanswered.
