Tiny Boutiques With No Bathrooms

Dear Eiko:

I wanted to follow up with you on the conversation we had on Saturday. We were sharing recommendations on cool shops and you blanched at the idea of going into a tiny boutique I like.

There’s something about a small shop that can be intimidating. You said you feel as if you have to buy something.

When you discover a shop that has the owner’s and your distinctive point of view you have stumbled upon a fun shopping experience. The owner has made it easy for you to find something and if she’s smart she’ll leave you alone. You have honored her with your presence and not your credit card.

But I do agree the lack of a bathroom is annoying given how much coffee we drink.

    Thank you for the endorsement of small shops. It is perfect definition of what we are. Bathrooms are another subject. FYI if we had a public bathroom we are subject to all kinds of inspections and regulations to be able to offer it to our customers. That is the way it is in Summit. I do not know about other towns and cities since it is a local issue. Happiest of New Years to you and your family.

Some say she's tart and arch, but she knows fabulous when she sees it, and that's what she writes about. Get her book, The Essentials of Fabulous, on Amazon. More about me...
