Mandrakes, Annabelle’s going out of business

The sign in the window at Mandrakes antiques at Market and 24th says it all:

After 19 years in the antiques business, owner Craig Keister is calling it quits. “When I put the sign in the window I was in tears,” he told KING 5, explaining the holidays were the worst in recent memory. “It was a total flop,” he said. “We’ve had Christmas seasons at $100,000, (but) this was $10,000.” Also planning to close due to the lousy economy: Annabelle’s Consignment shop on Market near Ballard Ave. (Thanks Anna for the photo and the tip.)
