Now, I'm a bargain shopper myself and love my steal of deal high I get when my favorite clothing store throws their 70% off sales, but I have personal attachments to my boutiques. I am very loyal to them as I get to experience a level of personal attention, ambrosia of fine pieces and a sense of calm that is unparalleled to shopping the mass market stores. Recently I read a blog post with a brilliant comment by Interior Designer, Tammy Conner. She stated: "I always advise my clients to choose quality over quantity. If necessary, I would much prefer that a project take 3 years to complete with quality pieces that will be cherished forever, than 6 months to just fill a house with furniture."
I am a huge fan of a little design shop located in Westchester, NY called The Open House. Owners, Barbara Sperling and Michele Green have created design candy not only for clients like myself, but for interior designers as well. Their store epitomizes what a boutique business is all about. Superb customer service, livable stylish selections and making lasting relationships with their buyers. I know designers have their list of boutiques such as The Open House, that would truly benefit their clients and themselves. It just becomes a matter of exposing their clients to this experience.
