A fixture of Waldo for decades, Waldo Antiques and Furniture closed last year.  Driving by this spot at 226 W 75th St, just east of Wornall, was a visual treat--there was usually a few eclectic pieces of furniture or odd painting on display right there on the sidewalk.  It was a local spot--a pla...
