Regular Flickr contributor Chris Diers has an elegy for the store pictured below, Aiko's Art Materials at 3347 N. Clark, which is closing in April. It was started in 1955 by Aiko Nagane, a Seattle native and Art Institute grad; she passed away in 2004, and a scholarship at Columbia College was started in her name.
