Two Marketplace Exits

Mulki has the same landlord Asian Fuzion had. If rents are so high, how's he doing? "I'm doing OK," he said. "People have to drink, they have to smoke."

ArtSpoken has spoken its last. Owner Gretchen Adracie closed her funky framing and art supply store on the corner of Miller and Ashley in early August. "The art supply thing didn't go as well as I'd hoped," says Adracie, who opened the store five years ago. Things were fine at first, but as art supply sales dwindled it became clear that most of her business would come from the custom framing. So she decided to close.

"I don't need this much space," Adracie says. "But I'm still going to frame," something she's been doing in one location or another for twenty-five years. With luck, she'll be doing it in a new space this fall; she's gotten together with a number of local artists to form the Dharma Initiative Artist Collective (Lost fans will get the reference to the Dharma Imitative, a mysterious organization headquartered in Ann Arbor). In August, they were in negotiations to rent a building on Huron and hoped to move sometime in September. "We'll all get a spot, and we'll all share."
