If you know us at all or if you have seen our sidewalk signs, you know we LOVE shopping small and local! In the first post of a new series, we are exploring our James St. and surrounding neighbourhood location for other small businesses to feature and support. We feel so blessed to be part of this community and to be surrounded by so many other amazing businesses so we are spreading the love in hopes that you are inspired to come and explore a new shop or two!
Our first stop is at one of the newest shops on the block, Second Dance. A bridal and formal wear boutique selling pre-loved items, this store is filled with the most amazing pieces at very reasonable prices. A vision created by St. Catharines designer, Jennifer Newman of Kaunis Jewellery, it is her belief that every beautiful garment deserves a Second Dance. Located at 122 St. Paul St, Second Dance occupies the beautiful space that locals would recognize as the former home of clothing boutique KloZ Etc. The exposed brick walls and duct work combined with a gorgeous tin ceiling, delicate chandeliers and original hardwood flooring give this space an industrial loft feel with a touch of feminine sophistication.
Second Dance accepts wedding gowns, other formal attire, shoes and accessories so if you are looking to give your pre-loved (or new and not able to use!) items a new home, visit Jennifer and she would happily discuss options with you. If you are a bride looking for a gorgeous couture gown for a fraction of retail pricing, then definitely swing by the shop or make an appointment for some dress up time! With greats like Valentino, Vera Wang and Jenny Packham in the shop, you will have a great day just browsing at all the beauty within!
Wishing Jennifer all the best as she continues to grow Second Dance!
