Chris Radke says he's closing one of the two stores he operates on Central Street in Evanston at the end of the month.
Radke says he's holding a liquidation sale for the rest of the month at his Dancing Bear Vintage Gallery, 1814 Central St.
The store features antiques including furniture, lighting, crystal and other objects from America, Asia and Europe.
Radke plans to continue operating his other store -- the Dancing Bear Native Gallery at 1922 Central. It focuses on Native American jewelry, art, antiques and collectibles.
Radke, who has run the native gallery for over 20 years, says it's been "a great and challenging experience" to run the vintage gallery as well.
“But in these tough times, people are spending their reduced resources more carefully, and I need to concentrate on those collectors who are still actively seeking fine Native American" objects, he added.
