Old Hollywood: Limelight Marketplace

Hey Hey.
So I have some major news. I am FINALLY opening that second location I have been rambling about needing. I love Greenpoint, don't get me wrong, but the construction outside of the shop makes the little foot traffic prone to that street even less, and it had to be done.
When I was approached about joining the team at Limelight it seemed too perfect, so I kept it on the hush until everything was settled.
Here it is guys, the new Limelight.

Now you may remember this historical 19th century house of worship as the trendy nightclub in the late 90's. Or the not to hip Avalon. Or perhaps you came to one of the random sample sales or concerts. Well, not anymore. Limelight has been transformed with a 15 million dollar renovation that still preserves the maze-like turns and hallways it's famous for. It is absolutely gorgeous. It looks like something Tim Burton would have designed. The photo above is a little snapshot of some of the area I will be filling. I am the only person in the entire market doing jewelry and accessories and I have a lot of cases to fill.
I have picked up about 15 new designers and still digging up some more.
Expect to see new jewelry from:
Elizabeth Street
Erica Weiner
Tom Tom Jewelry
In God We Trust
Plus new men's jewelry from This Charming Man, Nixon, Mateo Bijoux, and more!

You can also expect to see:
Brocade Home
Hunter Boots
Grimaldi's Pizzeria--their first ever Manhattan location, they will be slanging pies 24/7 with indoor and outdoor seating. The perfect late night pit stop after a show or the bar.
A Japanese toy maker, Gourmet food shop, and a 7 day a week farmers market. Oh yeah, and a concierge and a man in a tophat out front (possibly my favorite feature.)
