The Shophound reports yet another victim of the Great Bleecker Street Die-Off: Tiny antiques store Leo Design, which is being booted from its home of fifteen years. Leo Design shares a block with Treasures & Trifles, another antiques shop that just announced its closing, driving home the point that the pace of change in the neighborhood is accelerating. It's getting so that we're a little worried Marc Jacobs will run out of concepts for new stores. Clearly the next place to go from Book Marc is an organic grocery store called Super-Marc-et, but then what?
