You may have seen Black Ink in Harvard Square or Beacon Hill, but there's a sister-store, the Museum of Useful Things, that's a bit more out of the way (370 Broadway, Cambridge, near Central Square).  While Black Ink is full of gorgeous toys, cards, and trinkets, the Museum of Useful Things has more of a sleek, industrial look.  But they still carry tons of fun and functional stuff for me to blow my paychcks on.

FLYRABBIT IS GOING OUT OF BUSINESS!!! The last day will be Sunday, May 2, 2004.

Flyrabbit's demise is very sad for a lot of people. It's an Allston landmark, and a great hub of social interaction. Brooke Corey started it up 10 years ago, and now feels that the time has come to move on to new frontiers. Most media attention focuses on the macabre and distasteful (to some) elements of the store, but anyone who actually looks around for 15 minutes would realize that Flyrabbit is significantly more than a place to buy dead bugs. There are way too many good things to say about both the store and Brooke to list here. Allston will be diminished by the loss.

Sue, who has worked at Flyrabbit for years, is taking over the location, and hopes to receive all necessary licensing to ply her trade as a tattooist. Brooke will be starting up an online company to sell her own product lines. Hopefully, Allston will not decline into another Starbucks infested, soulless center of commerce. Only time will tell.

THIS SUNDAY - May 2, 2004 will be Flyrabbit's LAST DAY!!! Come buy stuff cheap (25-40% off,) and help celebrate 10 years of this business built by and for love, rather than the more traditional profit motive. Last chance!!!

And... I grew up in Boston, and know just about every weird little joint, I don't carry a guidebook, and I *still* manage look like a dork when walking around the city. It's my special gift.
