Canvas boutique on Fourth Street fills a void
Finally! Another clothing store on Fourth Street. Canvas, at 1535 4th Street N, now brings the total of women's clothing stores on the East Side's main drag to four.
That's only 77 behind the number of restaurants and 29 fewer than the number of grocery stores.
It has fun clothes that are in keeping with the latest trends (faux fur vests, tassels, ponchos) but still unique. Most of the clothes and accessories cost less than what's nearby at Marion's and are a little more mature than what's on the racks at The Shop.
The store itself is a place you just want to hang out. It's urban chic with a touch of glamour. Golden letters embedded in the concrete floor in the dressing rooms read "Be-you-tiful" and "Hello Gorgeous."
I wasn't sure why the name Canvas until I saw the Co Co Chanel quote painted next to the door.
"Fashion is art and you are the canvas."
