A new boutique has opened in Lake City that is sure to give customers a unique shopping experience. Becky’s Boutique and Upscale Resale opened just last week and is a must stop shop for those looking for unique gifts, clothing and accessories. Becky Holloway, owner of the Pet Spot, also located in Lake City, decided to open the boutique as a second business after some of her clients from the Pet Spot recommended she open a boutique because of what she had done with the pet grooming shop.
“It’s like a boutique for dogs,” one customer told the Suwannee Valley Times.
Holloway said the final factor that inspired her to open Becky’s Boutique came after talking with another customer who said she was tired of having to drive to Gainesville or out of town to shop for anything unique.
“I had always thought about having a boutique,” said Holloway, “So when she said that, I thought you know what, I’m going to do it.” They bought the building in June and are painting the outside bright yellow to match their signs. Their hours are Monday through Friday, 10am - 6pm, and Saturday, 10am - 2pm, tentatively, and closed Sunday.
Holloway said when she goes shopping for items for the boutique, “I always want to find something unique and different that everybody in town doesn’t carry,” she said. They offer clothing sizes from 4 to 6X, jewelry, unique gifts, home decor, duffle bags, shopping bags, purses, shoes and sunglasses, offering brands like SouthPole, Marc Anthony and others.
Customer Renee Pope of Lake City said she has always taken her dog to the Pet Spot to be groomed and got to know Holloway over the years.
“It is nice to be able to shop somewhere different besides the big retail stores,” Pope added she is so glad she opened the boutique and will be a regular customer.
Becky’s Boutique is located at 830 W. Duval Street (US Highway 90) on the curve just east of the Baya Drive split in Lake City. A customer came up with the slogan, “Make it a great day – shop away at Becky’s Boutique!” Holloway said she’s keeping that slogan and would like to invite the community to stop in to Becky’s Boutique.
