This business is in the heart of the downtown Carmel shopping area, surrounded by restaurants, galleries, and other fine shops. With three decades in business, this fine specialty shop has earned a truly outstanding reputation. The owner has nurtured relationships with the best designers, exhibiting a well-curated selection of high-end clothing, shoes, jewelry, and accessories. Many of the products are exclusive. Loyal customers are local, nationwide, and international.
Clients include individuals well-known in business, the arts, and entertainment. They are treated with discretion and care. It is not unusual for clients to fly in just to shop here.
The well-appointed boutique has 1,132 sq. ft. of street-level retail space in a charming building. The business enjoys an exceptionally high level of revenue per square foot.
