Donna’s Dress Shop moved! (Across the street)

And the award for the fastest retail shop move goes to … Donna’s Dress Shop! Once located at 1415 W. 39th Street, owner Donna Foulk hauled her treasure trove of vintage goodies, fantastic jewelry and sweetly affordable new clothing to the building that was formerly home to a dance studio. It’s directly across the street from her old shop — the new address is 1410 W. 39th Street.

A friend peeked into the shop yesterday, before the formal opening, and reported that it’s incredible inside: It’s twice the size of the original Donna’s, with four huge dressing rooms decorated with funky wallpaper prints from the ’70s, each lit with a different vintage chandelier. The hardwood floor has been freshly buffed, there are lovely high ceilings and a back patio for outdoor events. Speaking of ….

Donna’s is hosting a grand opening party Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., so you can stop by to sample food, drinks and goodie bags while browsing the merch in its new home. At 2 p.m., they’ll be christening the place by walloping on a pinata full of gift certificates, coupons and other treats.
