Flipside Footwear, the summery retail store which replaced The Vineyard Wine and Spirits in South Baltimore, is closing, much to the chagrin of the popped-collar set.
In all seriousness, I've never been one to gloat over the demise of any business -- not even Canton Arts and Entertainment (is it technically closed yet?).
I just never understood how a boutique surf wear shop could generate enough business to stay afloat (pun!) in the neighborhood.
But let's give Flipside the credit it deserves -- the shop survived two summers but just couldn't last through the recession. Oh well.
Goodbye, Flipside. See you ... on the flipside.
