I was so bummed to see that Motley will be closing its doors and leaving the South End. The hand written thank you on the storefront windows says it all.
Apparently, the store closing has less to do with the economy and more to do with the owner who has recently moved to Portsmouth, NH to open a B&B. Motley's collectables and garments made it a must visit if you were shopping in the neighborhood. I loved their Jack Spade bags, unique t-shirts and gag gifts. I am sorry to see the store close and hope some young entrepreneur will claim the space before a bank, salon or real estate company grabs the storefront.
