Welcome Uptown to Visitors!

Original story published on 

Union Street is now home to a unique, artist curated gift shop.  Visitors offers a selection of vintage and second clothing and accessories, as well as interesting and artistic giftware and decor items.  Featuring local and international contemporary artists, find a vast array of affordable pieces – all intriguing, all with some creative and artistic detail.  Stop by 145 Union Street and enjoy browsing this cute and eclectic shop, recently renovated by owners Emily and KC.  One of a kind items are continually changing at Visitors and they are eager to accept clothing on consignment, especially if vintage or offers a unique, classic or artsy flare consistent with the vibe of the space.

Inclusivity is a priority at Visitors, where clothing and accessories are available for all genders and bodies.  Owners, Emily and KC, both of settler ancestry, recognize themselves as ‘visitors’ within unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq First Nations, and acknowledge the role of business owners as stewards of the land.  This shop is a much appreciated alternative venue which hosts and will continue to welcome people and items.  Watch for future workshops, music events, book readings, etc.

Welcome uptown!  We value what you bring and look forward to having you in our ever expanding neighbourhood!
