Small business Saturday is next week and I for one love to shop locally and small. I count myself lucky that we can shop at local farmers markets, get bakery treats and coffee from small businesses locally and shop for fabulous things to wear at one of my favourites local businesses – Eye Candy Boutique.
They are open every week, one or more days and are always happy to make appointments if you can’t make the opening hours. Check their website or facebook page and sign up for e mails to be kept up to date.
I have to confess it took me a while to catch onto this little local treasure as I often walked past and saw the Eye Candy sign and wondered what it was all about. When I did go, I was not disappointed, Eye Candy has an ever changing array of fashion from accessories to cocktail dresses.
Whether you are looking for jeans and a casual shirt or a full on dazzling outfit, this is the place to be. The owner, the charming and gorgeous Jennifer Leszcz is always on hand to help and advise, she is full of ideas for outfits and how to style and accessorize them.
Need a gift? There is a fabulous choice of seasonal scarves, hats, jewelry and hostess gifts to choose from.
The changing stock means there is usually something new waiting to be tried on at Eye Candy. Thinking of a ladies night out? Get in touch with Jennifer, this place is perfect. Where better to get together with friends and dress up in gorgeous clothes and be able to go home with a whole new outfit or a pretty scarf to perk up your winter sweater.
