The Little Shoe Store Opens Permanent Shop at 58 Orchard

Posted on: June 4th, 2012 at 6:19 am by

Boutiques aren’t as prevalent on the southern stretch of Orchard Street, below Grand. This nook of the neighborhood is dominated more by a plethora of likeminded galleries, one of which recently closed to make way for some fashionable retail.

Jawspace Gallery took over the storefront of 58 Orchard Street at the end of last year, but like its predecessor Pacific Business Machine (cash registers), the showroom was equally short-lived. A mere six months on location. In its place comes a niche East Village transplant that specializes in new and vintage “grownup shoes for petite feet.” That’s right, the Little Shoe Store (not just a clever name), formerly the weekends-only shop on East Seventh Street, now has a permanent brick-and-mortar establishment here on the Lower East Side.

The Little Shoe Store opened over Memorial Day Weekend, and wasted little time in throwing its sandwich board on the sidewalk.
