After 12 years of bringing Halifax handmade and vintage jewellery, art, clothing and whole lot of hats, Lady Luck Boutique (5519 Young Street) is opening a second location. Jennifer Huntley (who co-owns the shop with her sister Melanie) says they’re aiming to open at 118 Portland Street (between Sugar Shok and Dartmouth Yarns) in early September, and “It’s going to be grandiose.”
That’s thanks to a total gut-job, high ceilings, silkscreened floors from artist Mike Lewis and the carefully curated collection of beautiful things you'll find inside. It's a slightly smaller space than the Hydrostone location, which will mean a more streamlined selection, but the Huntleys are excited to bring the same vibes, and Canadian artisans, to the other side of the bridge.
"For the last two years we’ve been scoping out the area, waiting for the right space,“ says Huntley, adding that she and her sister both live in the downtown Dartmouth area. "There’s a movement happening in Dartmouth. And we just want to help that movement along.”
