HBML closes today

posted by Mike on April 1st, 2009

Happy Birthday Mike Leslie!HBML, the visionary junk shop that for three years has been, pound-for-pound, Worcester’s most important cultural institution, is closing today.

Without HBML as an inspiration and retail outlet, Bruce Russell and I would not have released the Snow Ghost CD and books. HBML also was underwriter for the Snow Ghost Community Show.

I’m sad to see it go, but more than that, thankful it ever existed.

6 Happy Birthday Mike Leslie

    Amen to that! I’m thankful it existed too. I wish these guys the best of luck and I hope they pop-up somewhere else with another innovative establishment soon.

    It seems to me that Jacob, his friends and customers/supporters understood something that many are blind to. HBML was really one of the very few in this city who truly practiced a movement centered upon “local” economy in a meaningful way.
    Thanks and best wishes to Jacob and his future endeavors.
