I stopped into the Blue Moose Cafe on High Street in Brattleboro the other day to grab a panini and use their free WiFi. On my way in I realized they have a new boutique in the store.
It's Lark's Fine Women's Accessories and it's beautiful! Like many places in Brattleboro, Lark's is small and intimate with a warm, inviting personality. The owner, Lark Eustace was tending shop and we chatted for awhile about her unique selection of clothing and accessories.
Before you head off to the mall for Back to School shopping, stop by and see Lark! Her store is elegant, but surprisingly affordable.
Some of the lines Lark is carrying include: Pine Cone Hill (bathrobes and pajamas), Charlie Leather (cross body bags, custom designed in many colors), Hemptress (eco-conscious hemp handbags that won the 2010 Independent Handbag Designer Awards), Brattleboro resident Kori Leary (velvet scarves), local artisan Donna Wilson (hand knit hats made with wool and finished with added mohair from her Vermont farm’s sheep and lambs) and Brattleboro resident Allen McCarty (Dichroic jewelry). You won't believe the variety of little luxuries that are tucked into this trendy boutique.
Lark's an Interior Designer and Fashion Merchandiser trained in Phoenix, AZ, but she grew up in Vermont. Maybe that's why her sophisticated, high end boutique has managed to fit perfectly into Brattleboro's funky scene.
