Little Lower East Side vintage shop Ellen just shuttered after more than seven years at 122 Ludlow Street, between Rivington and Delancey. Bowery Boogie thinks the space will be taken over by another boutique or a high-end salon, and we don't doubt it. Let's just hope the building gets its reported bedbug problem under control before then. [BB; Bedbug Registry]
