Northgate Mall Gets New, Creative Boutique


A creative supply boutique with a top-ranked Etsy store, called 9-5 Boutique, has just moved into the Northgate Mall on the Northside of Lafayette.

9-5 Boutique has been in business for a few years selling their creative jewelry supplies, charms, gemstones, glass beads, and other supplies on Etsy, eBay, Walmart.com, and their website, 9-5boutique.com. During the past year, 9-5 Boutique established a physical presence by renting space in the popular flea market in Carencro, The Jockey Lot. The in-person store grew, and a chance to expand to a larger space while maintaining a similar lease cost arose. They jumped at the chance.

You can now find 9-5 Boutique inside of Lafayette’s Northgate Mall, located at 1800 NE Evangeline Thruway. The new location for 9-5 Boutique offers space for local crafters, and artisans to display their pieces that vary in all types, and price ranges. If you’d like to be a vendor at 9-5 Boutique, they are accepting vendors with the exception of jewelry at this time. You can visit the shop if feel that you would be a good fit for their store.

9-5 Boutique will also soon offer jewelry, and craft classes for all ages and levels of expertise. They plan to host paint parties, glow parties, and after hour adult activities for those looking for something creative, and fun to do.

As for the Northgate Mall, it’s life is far from over. Many stores still occupy the space, and more are moving in. In fact, a growing interest in the community is to see the Northgate Mall thriving, once again. See our post about the most recent changes to the Northgate Mall building. Click here.

Side note – this was my second visit to the Northgate Mall, ever. Once when I was a little kid, while pay phones were still a thing, and this past week.
