Dear Verve Customers:

It is with great sadness that we are announcing the closing of Verve.

After 18 years on Bleecker Street in the West Village, the Upper West Side, and Chelsea in NYC, the time has come for us to move on to new adventures.

It has been a privilege getting to know you, your families, and friends.

We will miss you coming through our door and seeing you on the street.

We implore you to keep walking your neighborhood and shopping in your local boutiques and small businesses.

We believe that in this world of big business, home delivery, and discount shopping, the only true opportunity for innovation and craft is the independent store.

They are the lifeblood of our communities where we all come together and the best hope we have of a diverse and uncommon future.

We appreciate the opportunity to have served you and wish you well.

Kind Regards,


To live is the rarest thing in the world.

Most people exist, that is all.

—Oscar Wilde

Zagat (24 for Quality, 22 for Service) Shopping Guide:

“Up-to-the-minute NYC girls” strut into these “continually restocked” “treasure troves” “overflowing” with “great goodies” and “always wind up leaving with some fabulous find.”

“The V in Verve is for variety, as in funky jewelry and luscious, unusual” bags, belts, hats and scarves from local and European designers . . . you haven’t heard about yet, but will at a refreshing range of prices.”

“The “friendly staff helps you find” pieces “specific to your style.”

“P.S. the shoes are to die for.”

“Can’t walk by without lightening my wallet.”

Dress shabbily and they remember the dress;

dress impeccably and they remember the woman.
