Dusty Buttons has a new home on East 9th Street
In July, the 6-year-old vintage boutique Dusty Buttons closed at 441 E. Ninth St. after newish landlord Icon Realty served them with a 125 percent rent increase.
After exploring possible locations in Philadelphia for the shop, owner Amanda Loureiro and her husband Peter were able to find a new space closer to home — in fact just one block away.
On Monday, Loureiro signed the lease for 324 E. Ninth St. (the storefront next to Sakaya) between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
"We are staying in the East Village," Loureiro posted on Facebook. "We have a lot of work to do on this old beauty but hope to be open for early October."

Yay! I'm so glad they're back—and in time for Christmas sopping!
This warms my heart.
Hooray! This is wonderful to hear.
BEST news ever!!!!! This is a perfect shopping block for The Dusty Button. I'm so glad they are opening up here!!!!
Happy to hear this. Anyone know if The Upper Rust is still on the chopping block? I've not heard any more about their closing since it was mentioned in a post here some months ago.
Good for them! Nice to see a happy ending once in a while.
Really -- good news! (This was Fialka's space?)
