A Unique Boutique Visit


A new day, a new outing with Sadie Mae, Toto and Rufus! This outing we are going to one of my go-to destinations for gifts and fun stuff to decorate with. This is my friend Lisa’s shop and it is certainly a Unique Boutique – filled with vintage and handmade finds. It is one of those places that you will go back to again, and again! Inside Unique Boutique is a cute section, Poochie Couture, that caters to the needs of our best friends, our dogs! Poochie Couture features limited-edition, custom designed dresses for your dog, doggie strollers, special doggie treats, designer dog carriers and much more. Rufus and Toto were having a ball there!!

P1010011z Lets stroll now and see what Lisa and her over 40 vendors have today. LOVING the stack of vintage suitcases, so much in fact that the top one came home with me.


Unique Boutique carries Annie Sloan chalk paint! Grabbed a few cans of that to work on a few pieces at home.

P1010021t Handmade jewelry made from vintage bits and bobs – love the display! And the two doggins’ found some dog jewelry to try on. Don’t they look cute!?

P1010062m Delicious handmade Biscotti from Pleitez Lavender – and they are fabulous!!

P1010050uEven the dogs found the doggie snacks! P1010061nP1010036u Wonderful pillows for your home…

P1010041s …and handmade boxes made by Bohemian Mojo, a local artist who has a degree in art and interior design.


Time to round up the gang and go pay for our finds. Sadie waits at the check-out counter….

Such a darling place, it has been ages since I went to an antique mall or anything as full of goodies as this. I need to find something close and look at the inspiration:>)

Oh what a wonderful place to shop Becky! I am going to have to get me some of Annie Sloan chalk paint! We have a little shop that carries it here! Have a wonderful evening.

Looks like a one stop shop for Christmas for all of your female family and friends! I have been wanting that Ann Sloan paint! I want to play with it too! I was thinking it might be a great little side business too:)

Becky I love that shop, all kinds of interesting things in there. Tell Toto I love the pearls, very classy.
I can't wait to see what you do with your suitcase and paint.
