The Little Shoe Store now resides on Clinton St.

Orchard Street south of Grand is gallery territory. It seems that pretty much any new vacancy in this part of the neighborhood is quickly scooped up by some showroom from Chelsea or beyond. It’s not really a place where boutiques flourish. Such is the scene in which the Little Shoe Store entered two years ago.

The East Village transplant arrived here in June of 2012, and continued the business model of selling new and vintage “grownup shoes for petite feet.” But its tenure on Orchard has reached conclusion.

The Little Shoe Store could no longer hack it and moved northeastward to the fertile ground at 40 Clinton Street. This location seems like a better fit for the small business. Lots more foot traffic.

40 Clinton Street was previously home to KE Haas Hair Salon, which closed a couple years ago.
