This is the former Riccardi Clothier space that closed back in March of 2015.

Jenni Bick’s website says:

“Jenni started making books in 1990, crafting pretty handmade journals and photo albums on her kitchen table, and toting them up and down the east coast to sell at independent bookstores and craft fairs. To improve her craft and learn more about the art of bookbinding, she started importing the magnificent leather bound books she found in little workshops in Italy. When we began to learn about personalizing these books with names and logos, we knew we had found a business we could love and sustain for life.

25 years later, the business has grown to include Jenni’s husband Robby, a crew of 14 dedicated fellow book-lovers, and a tribe of almost half a million satisfied customers. Together, we work hard every day to share our passion with you. We are dedicated to bringing you the best books we can find, decorated as artfully as we can manage, and chosen just for you. After all, you are the one who will fill it, who will give it life; our job is just to make that possible.”
