The Old Market's Shop Around the Corner has moved.

The store, which buys and sells vintage clothing and antiques, moved about a month ago to 1118 B Howard St., below the Tea Smith, said Jessica Misegadis, who co-owns the store with Geri Hogan and James Kavan. It was formerly next door to the Diner on 12th Street.

Misegadis said the new location allows for more walk-in customers.

Parmida store closes

Parmida Home Lifestyle Store in Midtown Crossing has closed, said Molly Skold, spokeswoman for Midtown Crossing.

The store's closing is reportedly part of a multistore closure by the Dallas-based furnishings and home decor retailer, Skold said.

The store sold Indonesian furniture, dinnerware, wine and cheese accessories, coffee and tea and gifts.

The company's website,, could not be accessed Friday. The phone at the Omaha store was not being answered. Company officials could not be reached for comment.

Parmida, at 200 S. 31st Ave., opened at Midtown Crossing in late 2011.

Skold said the retail space has already drawn a potential tenant. “We have a letter of intent,” Skold said, but she declined to provide details.
