#yeg Spotlight: Harlow

There’s a charming and beloved spot in Edmonton, known to many as High Street, that is currently undergoing a few changes. For many years, the area’s European charm has attracted various demographics: young, old, families, foodies, coffee lovers, cheese connoisseurs, collectors, and crafters. With the sad news of main fixture, Notables , closing its doors at the end of May, and Tin Box having closed earlier in 2014, the way has been paved for new tenants to begin the next generation, so to speak.

Enter Harlow. I came across this poster a couple of weeks ago, and immediately began my research to find out more about this mysterious “H”. What I have uncovered so far is that it is a lifestyle boutique that will be featuring a variety of brands in gifts, clothing, and home decor.

Harlow’s sister store, Lyndale Accents, lends a bit of a trailer to what we can expect when Harlow opens its doors later this spring. This silver bangle by Alex and Ani made it home with me after an afternoon outing that Theodora and I took to the pretty gift shop last Monday.

With the information that has been made public so far, it seems that Harlow will be a most welcomed addition to the area famously known for perfect and leisurely weekend strolls. I am anxiously awaiting the big reveal, and can’t wait to see what else moves into the vacant spots in the area!
