Audray Luck, a local woman, pursues her dream of being her own boss by opening a brick and mortar in the historic saddlery building. Luck’s Place, what she calls an antique shop, is full of unique treasures from years gone by.
Ms. Luck specializes in antique clothing and textiles, as well as vintage items. Luck’s Place is a place where everyone can come and find something they like. Local artisans are also featured in the store featuring homemade leather goods, jewelry, houseplants and more.
Ms Luck is a longtime collector who started selling vintage clothing three years ago on Instagram as White Hart Vintage Co. while living on the road. Now she lives outside of Chattanooga on a small school bus where she has been operating her business since returning from the road.
“I have lived in tiny spaces and have had a minimalist, nomadic lifestyle for over eight years,” Ms. Luck said. “Having this space to display and sell all of my treasures is something I don’t take for granted.”
Mrs. Luck loves everything old, but especially clothes and textiles. “I want to prevent every old garment and fabric from going to landfill. Regardless of the condition, we can reuse the items and repair them as they once did. Each item of clothing that crosses its space has a story to tell. Ms Luck said it was an honor to be able to pass these stories on to the person who buys them.
This space is more than just a vintage clothing store or an antique store. This is a selection of carefully selected clothing and special items. It is in its own way an art gallery. A place where you can learn about the paths of the past and the stories it contains, officials said.
