Five years ago, Rachel and Jim Malloy applied their funky aesthetic and love for locally made clothing and accessories and set up shop in downtown Phoenix. Ever since, Bunky Boutique (named for Rachel's grandmother) has been a sure stop on any of our gift-finding missions -- yes, including those for ourselves.
On Friday, September 7 at 7 p.m., the Malloys will toast the shop's five-year anniversary with champagne and cake, 20 percent off merchandise, and plenty of giveaways. The boutique, located in the Merz building at 1427 North First Street, is a must-see and a must-stop-in. And, if it were up to us, we'd eat cake and toast to the Malloys more often.
