Locally-based Internet shops upgrading to brick-and-mortar digs just might be the next big fashion trend.
Last year we saw e-Bay favorite Meat Market Vintage open shop on Mill Avenue. Now, Etsy stores Ouma and Mignonne Handmade have opened Cleo & Clementine in the space next to Melrose Pharmacy that was formerly occupied by Blueberry Deluxe -- another boutique that went from online to IRL, but ended up back in the digi realm.
With Ouma owner Monique Martinez-Sandoval and Jennifer Wood of Mignonne Handmade at the helm, the boutique (which houses the designers' studio space in the back) will fill the Valley's very-empty indie bridal void with handcrafted dresses starting around $100, headpieces from $22, and ethereal accessories.
Not only are nuptials-preppers catered to, but Cleo & Clementine also carries party dresses, casual accessories, including fun stuff from Leah Goren, and everyday jewelry.
