PHAG Liquidation Sale
A tough retail climate compelled seven-year-old PHAG (Philadelphia Home and Garden) to close its shop in favor of moving all retail operations online beginning in April. Through March, everything in the brick-and-mortar store is dramatically marked down, including gift items, home décor, furnishings and their always-clever selection of wry greeting cards. Fans of the shop will find a much-expanded online selection of goods, and phaginteriors.com will continue to offer fixed-rate decorating and design services and custom-ordered furnishings for clients. 1225 Walnut St., 215-627-0461, thephagshop.com.
