Luscious Paper – One year later
Here’s an update over a year after Luscious left Hoboken… Very interesting! Sounds like another horrible landlord again!

Why did Luscious leave?
“My name is Aixa Sobin and I am the owner of Luscious Paper. I meant to write for a long time about what happened and I never got the chance. I moved away from Hoboken, got married and had a baby. He is now almost 7 months old.” (Congrats, Aixa!)
“I know this is probably old news but I would like a chance to speak the truth.
I had a three year lease, during these three years the landlord tried to evict me about 6 times for various things such as dripping air conditioner, leaving the door open to my customers, loud music. Etc.
The problem all began when I changed the locks because he was letting himself in my store at night and rearranging lighting that he did not like. He also would not allow me in the store before a particular time, and he seemed to think(since he lived downstairs) he can control of when I came in and when I left. I had to call the police several times. Because he would let himself in if I did not open the door for him. In any event I won every court case with and without my lawyer.
And finally my lease was up and he was not going to renew it and after all I had been through I did not want to renew it. I have honestly never been through such hell in my life. The thousands of dollars I spent trying to stay open and not be evicted. And the judge always ruled in my favor.For me the most difficult thing was being a former street vendor and getting a store so that I could get more Cred in the marketplace and having the trouble that I did. It was an extremely painful experience.
The last month of lease, I did not pay my rent cause he had a deposit that he was not going to give me back and I used that as rent.
I had made many improvements to the property, which he had helped me with and then in court he denied giving me permission, using that as grounds to evict me.
I am now looking for a location in Tribeca where I now live, doing the shows at Grand Central, Union Square I do wholesale for some major companies in the United States and I am having a warehouse/showroom sale at the moment at 131 Varick Street suite 917 on Mondays and Thursdays from 11-6pm.”

Boy, they got booted out of there in a hurry. “Evicted for non-payment of rents”.
