After 16 years of providing locals and tourists with an eclectic array of vintage and beach-themed gifts, the 7th Street Whimsy has closed its doors. The shop owner cited the mega hit from the winter as the direct cause. The shop was closed for two months and after a lackluster summer, the business was unable to catch up and recover. “We’re very sad we had to close that shop,” said Karen Clark, Whimsy owner. The good news: many of the treasures from the 7th Street location will find their way to the Whimsy shop on Linden Avenue, which will remain open.
