Field Trip Friday: Hello Lucky
Six years ago this month, Hello Lucky came into being. Located at 1025 Studewood, it exists in a charming, unassuming white house, sporting lawn chairs and a brick stoop. I walked in asking questions, and Sarah Harlow was there to tell me a little about the store.
Harlow enthusiastically explained to me owner Teresa O'Connor's vision: a boutique with emphasis on the beautiful and ethical. Hello Lucky does not revolve around the exchange of money, she explained, it is a place that is open to the community, open to artists to show work and hang out. This is a safe place where the work and maker are respected, and this passes on what Sarah explained as "client positive intent."
Because of the standards and goals with which Hello Lucky began, the store feels more like a home, welcoming the neighborhood to engage with its creatives. The door is open, the sunlight spills in, and high quality, well designed works are in abundance. Clothing, accessories, what's-its. They're all here.
