Atmosphere: The architecture of the two-level store has a vintage feel with hardwood floors, white accents, a massive chandelier and exposed brick walls. While the building is older, it looks very modern when paired with the current clothing and top 40 tunes playing throughout the boutique.

Bread and Butter: “You will always find the latest trends. We have styles you see on celebrities and in magazines,” says co-owner Stavroulla Kokkinis. The boutique is stocked with brightly colored clothing, printed pieces, fun jackets and tons of statement jewelry including Lily & Laura free-trade crochet bracelets from Nepal.

Sweet Surprises: Although it is in the name, many are surprised to discover that three sisters—Athina, Stavroulla and Stella—actually own the store. The family also owns the classic Old Town favorite The Lucky Knot.

Fiercest Fans: The store caters to all ages, so any woman can find something appealing within the racks.

Blows to the Budget: Clothing ranges between $26.95 and $79.95. Jewelry ranges between $12.95 and $36.95. —Angela Bobo
