A vapid shop rarely open replaced by a vapid shop never opened.
Robert Lewis was excited when January 2008 was the best month for sales at his small art gallery — but then the recession hit quickly.
A month later, sales “were virtually zero,” said Lewis. They haven’t been much better since, so Lewis is closing Le Beau Soleil Gallery in downtown Pacific Grove on Saturday.
Now, Lewis said he will spend about half his time painting and marketing his oils, which start at about $5,000.
Hmmm, $5,000 for one of these and the man wonders why sales are zilch.
