Fashion industry vet Jodie Patterson and her business partner Kiara Ellozy opened their beauty boutique and salon Georgia on Bowery and Houston long before Rag & Bone or DGBG put their stamps on the neighborhood. After three years, though, the team has decided to take the shop to the Internet. Bowery Boogie reports that workers dismantled the store's gorgeous shabby-chic interior yesterday, leaving behind only the peeling walls. Head to the store's blog for a farewell note from the owners as well as heartfelt goodbyes from the likes of Veronica Webb and Tucker designer Gaby Basora.
