MIPassion, a women’s clothing and gift shop in downtown Port Huron, is moving down the block to a bigger storefront. Anita Varty, owner of MIPassion, currently at 217 Huron Street, said that since opening in June of 2019, she has outgrown her small storefront. The boutique will be moving down the street to the former Port Huron Chiropractic space at 229 Huron. The chiropractic office is moving to Marysville.
MIPassion’s new location is in a large historic space that is connected to Kate’s Downtown, a popular café. Varty said that she didn’t want her store to start looking cluttered, with her growing inventory, and jumped at the chance to expand into a bigger space on the “perfect block” downtown with the opportunity to collaborate with Kate’s- an added bonus.
Varty has started the renovation and hopes to be into the new space by March 1. She is looking forward to adding more accessories to her current stock of women’s clothing in sizes small to 3X and her Michigan-made home goods and gifts. Michigan artists are also a prominent feature in the store. The possibility of offering classes such as necklace making in the future also comes with the larger space, according to Varty.
