On Tuesday, July 17th, I visited a cute store called Heartbreak Boutique. (@heartbreaknb) The store is owned by Pamela Wheaton, and is located at 80 Princess Street. Pamela made the 550 sq ft space into a beautifully designed store. The boutique includes styles like rockabilly and pin-up, combined with roller derby.

I tried on many things in this store, here are a few of my favorites:
(Love this dress! I bought it!)
Opening June first, the space has had a lot of business since it's the only store of it's kind around. If you wanted to buy any sort of clothing of that style, you'd have to go to a bigger city or shop online for it.

The store also had some interesting artwork…
This boutique has everything from women's clothing, mens, and children. It even has shower curtains, knee socks, and handbags! I hope to see this boutique thrive! I personally love the style and plan on visiting the store often.
Pamela Wheaton, a roller dirby girl herself, wanted to bring the styles to Saint John, and hopes to eventually have her own clothing line.

I absolutely love this boutique!
