What’s new at Flutter?

Flutter has seen some major changes since the last blog post! I guess I should start with the change of hands this January. Chances are good that, if you’ve been to visit us on Mississippi Avenue, then you’ve met the new owners already. Cristin and I have been involved with Flutter from the very beginning, and Cindy was sure we’d take very good care of the store (and King, the cat!). She is now focused on Eden, her store in the Pearl District, which recently celebrated the opening of an opulent bridal boutique. Go, Cindy!

Flutter has quite a bit of momentum on her own (Flutter is a lady, yes?), and so the transition for us was an easy one. I’m proud to say, the shop looks FANTASTIC. It’s a lot of fun to go out and source the vintage treasures that make the store so special. We’ve kept all the favorites in stock, and upped the ante with new lines like Library of Flowers (lovely scented creams and potions) and Etat Libre d’Orange (radically chic eau de parfum from Paris). We’re hosting a different tarot reader every Sunday of the month, as well as stocking our favorite decks. Also, we changed the site a bit to make it even easier for you to stream our newest playlists: just click on the “Music Player” in the main navigation banner. We’ll post a new one to 8Tracks every Monday. One of my favorite new additions is the painting above. Cristin brought her over when she closed Palace of Industry. Isn’t she something?

The biggest change has yet to come… Emerald Petals is moving in! That’s right! It’s like a dream come true. All those beautiful plants, and I won’t ever have to water them (I have a lazy thumb). They’re going to love that huge skylight. I can’t wait. We’ll be posting more about that soon.

Here are some shots of our newest finds. Happy Spring, everyone!

XO, Sara
