LUVLY IN WINTER
Over the past six years, the historic Burns Block on Lunenburg’s Lincoln Street has become a centre of creative industry following the opening of Luvly in Lunenburg and The Lunenburg Makery, Altered at the Lunenburg Makery, together with the consulting and design offices which were established on the second floor.
In addition to the retail offerings and workshops it has developed in this period, The Lunenburg Makery has created a successful line of craft kits which are now being sold across Canada. Plans to expand the line are underway. Altered continues to be in high demand for repairs and re-styling and has completed a research project in partnership with NSCAD on adaptive clothing.
Working with an array of exceptionally talented designers from across the country, Luvly in Lunenburg has demonstrated that the Canadian design industry can create clothing for women of all ages that is well-made, stylish and affordable while still being manufactured in an ethical and sustainable manner.
For the past five years, Luvly in Lunenburg has enjoyed a special relationship with more than twenty of these designers whose work has collectively created the unique look and feel of the store and the shopping experience that is Luvly in Lunenburg.
While Luvly in Lunenburg has developed a loyal customer following in the local market, there are simply too few people in the Lunenburg area to sustain a year round operation.
Beginning this fall, the next cycle in the life of the Burns Block will begin when Luvly in Lunenburg closes its doors on October 8th for the winter season.
As we take this pause, we would like to take this opportunity to thank those who contribute to making Luvly in Lunenburg a special place – our customers, designers and staff.
