Chelsea Marketplace Changes
Stidwill's, the antique and reproduction shop opened by a mother-daughter team in November 2006, will close in January or sooner. Cate Rosewig blamed some problems in her life for the decision to shut down. She and daughter Ryann Maxwell were happy with the business, and Rosewig plans to keep selling antiques, jewelry, pillows, throws, and other home and personal accessories online at rubylane.com under the name Stidwill's Decorative Antiques. Unless someone leases the space soon, she says, Stidwill's will be open through the end of the year, with many seasonal items to offer.
Stidwill's, 114 North Main, suite 5, Chelsea, 475-6380. Thurs.-Sat. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Closed Sun.-Wed.
The Glass Slipper, a dance clothing and supply shop, will not reopen after the fire that hit a half dozen retailers and restaurants in the Chelsea Shopping Center. Also gone is Main Street Pizza and Grinders. Its quarters at 1250 South Main are for lease.
