A new spirit has arrived in downtown Antigonish. It’s called Aphrodite, an Odyssey of Art & Fashion.  This 2500 square foot boutique and gallery at 292 Main Street is situated in what is known in town as the white house – an historic building reputed as the second oldest house in town. Main Street is now home to this innovative clothing store aimed at the professional woman – filling a long time void in the region.

Situated in the heart of downtown Antigonish

Aphrodite carries over 30 distinctive lines of clothing chosen for women of all ages and sizes featuring designers from across Canada and Europe.

The casual clothing room

Atlantic Canada is home to many talented artisans from which some outstanding jewellery designers have been chosen to showcase their work in a specially designed gallery.

Aphrodite embraces a lifestyle concept that extends to fine craft such as blown glass, handpainted pottery and sculptural woodwork that is exquisitely displayed in the conservatory of its splendid home. This leads to the fine art gallery that features wonderful paintings made by emerging and professional artists. The end result is an original space full of unpredictable creativity that delights the eye and the soul.
