It's entirely possible that the problems in getting supplies from Europe have added to their their troubles, as well as the shrinking film market. I still think that a boutique store of this type could make it, but I don't know what kinds of problems they were having that led to their closing up. I really liked their custom film sizes, and am now kicking myself for not buying a bunch of 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 sheet film. I do have a box of 2 x 3" sheet film from them, so I can at least put it to use in my baby graphic.
Thanks, J&C -- I have missed ordering from you. Freestyle is now the only place that caters especially to film users, so I suggest that you support them.
