The Shopping Block

Designers Monique Martinez-Sandoval and Jennifer Wood have made their mark on Etsy with custom-made wedding wear, delicate dresses, and handmade accessories available through their respective online shops Ouma and Mignonne Handmade. Now, they take their online success and bring it to a brick-and-mortar setting with their new boutique Cleo & Clementine.

Filled with their own creations and jewelry from Tiny Armour, Moon Raven, and Tiny Galaxies, plus Leah Goren’s bric-a-brac, the shop is a fresh addition to the Melrose District's vintage hub. Martinez-Sandoval and Wood will open the stylish space, which also houses their studios, to the public with a party on Friday, October 19, to include music, wine, complimentary photos at a mini portrait studio, and crème brûlée from Torched Goodness.
