Lindsey Thornburg is moving the boutique to 21 Orchard St.

With all the upheaval in and around Hell Square the last decade, one business continues to pinball from store to store. Boutique owner Lindsey Thornburg, presently at 114 Stanton Street, is about to embark on a journey from the battered area, poised for the fruits Chinatown.

Lindsey Thornburg opened the eponymous store at 114 Stanton in December 2012. However, once the building was touted for sale on the open market earlier this year, we knew time here was limited. The leasing sign was affixed to the storefront within the last couple weeks, signaling change.

The new boutique location is 21 Orchard Street, which had previously housed DCKT Contemporary for a little more than a year. The gallery ceased operations last month.

This sudden move is the result of a rent hike. Naturally. Apparently both 112 and 114 Stanton were recently sold. “They want 11,000 for the rent,” the proprietor tells us in an email. “Hence our departure.” So, the business is relocating to an area that’s lately become the standard-bearer of Lower East Side cool. The lease was signed yesterday.

Meanwhile, the 1,200 spqre-foot space is already making the rounds on Craigslist. It’s being pitched as a prime opportunity for a restaurant space with backyard. $11,000 per month.
