57 Whitfield Street, a prime spot on the Guilford Green, emptied on Feb. 18, after Asiye's Boutique's last day of business.
But the space wasn't vacant for long. Black Eyed Susan Consignment has moved from their upstairs location at 87 Whitfield Street to Asyie's old space on street level. The shop celebrated their grand opening March 9, and co-owner Susan Agamie is loving the new location.
"Since the move, everything has been great, and we are beyond excited," said Agamie, who owns the shop with along with Cindy Wallace. "We are really excited about the increased exposure, and we've been getting positive feedback about the move from our customers."
Agamie says they are currently subletting the space from Asiye Kay, who is still on the lease.
"We were always looking for a space near where we were located, but on street level," continued Agamie. "We used to shop at Asiye's and became friends with her, which is how we learned about the available space."
"The opportunity for the space came up really quickly," Agamie concluded. "But we knew we had to jump on it. I'm so excited we did."
