After eight years, the Boutique has found a new home.
Formerly located south of Wendy’s in a quaint building off the Beeline Highway, the Boutique has moved inside The Carpenter’s Wife shop off West Wade Lane.
Owner Sandra Whitenack said the move not only gives her more space, but brings together two great shops under one roof.
Whitenack sells all new women’s clothing, including everything from casual wear for a cruise to dresses fit for a wedding. The Carpenter’s Wife meanwhile remains a popular destination for antique and vintage décor and furniture. A frequent top finisher on the Roundup’s annual “Best of” poll, The Carpenter’s Wife has been in Payson for 16 years, says owner Kristie Dillman.
Dillman had invited Whitenack to expand into her shop several times before. When Whitenack learned the owners of the Boutique building had sold the property, she knew it was the right time.
“I love it, love it here,” Whitenack said, standing among racks of bright and sparkly separates. Besides an additional 200 square feet, Whitenack loves all the windows in the corner suite of The Carpenter’s Wife she now occupies.
And Whitenack is happy to share her space. She worked alone in the Boutique most days, as did Dillman.
Dillman said she is happy to have such a reputable shop move in. “I had other people before and it did not work out,” she said. “I knew it would work well with her though. She was already sending people over here and I would send customers her way.”
Whitenack’s clothing is geared to women 30 and above. She says 60 percent of her customers are local and most have been coming for years.
Pieces range from $19.50 up to $230 for a “fancy dress.”
