U Life Accessory, a lovely lifestyle boutique and winner of the Westender‘s Best Gift Store in 2010, officially closed its doors on August 2.
Unlike Gandy’s Home Hardware, this wasn’t a dramatic in-the-red scenario. Owner Unity Whittaker made the decision not to renew the lease for another five years.
According to FASHION, “Whittaker ignited her love affair with one-of-a-kind pieces while backpacking far and wide, collecting unique finds along the way.”
U Life carried a well-curated selection of classy baubles. A steady stream of shoppers did their best over the last couple of weeks to clear out all of U Life’s oddball Sigg water bottles and sparkly Tarina Tarantino jewelry.
Best of luck to you, Unity. I’ll have to find somewhere new to shop for bridal shower gifts. Now I’m quite curious to see who is interested in this prime real estate at 2028 Vine St.
