The owners of Mingei World Arts gave us all quite a bit of notice and prepared us for this day, but it still isn’t easy.
Late last week an alert went out, letting regulars and followers know that this would be Mingei’s last weekend in business.
And then late yesterday, Mingei’s owners wrote on Facebook…
Peace out, Decatur! Mingei is CLOSED on Church Street. Thanks for the memories! Love you all–
End of a lovely, bright yellow era to be sure. But don’t forget, the Decatur store may have closed but Mingei lives on! From last week’s alert…
Remember- we are moving, not going out-of-business. Make sure you are on our email list so you won’t miss news about our next chapter. (and our new location!)
