Now in its 36th year, Tiffany, Etc. (439 East Main Street) has long been a go-to for fashionable and tasteful interior decor items, but now customers can update their wardrobe and their living room in one convenient stop. Glee Westcott, the owner of Tiffany Etc. has recently expanded her fashion and apparel offerings at her beautiful downtown shop.
“Fashion is a very new adventure for Tiffany, Etc. but like design and color in art and decor, I’m loving every minute of making these new choices for Tiffany’s,” Westcott says. “Many of our customers are delighted with their new finds and the styles offered.” Westcott says she especially loves the two made in America choices they are carrying. “Casual, comfortable and stylish. Something for everyone.”
On top of the newly-expanded fashion offerings, Tiffany Etc. also offers virtually any home decor item you can think of including home fragrances, candles and figurines. Westcott also offers a personalized interior design service, so whether you’re looking for a complete interior makeover or a new spin on the traditional autumn style, Tiffany Etc. can help.
While Heirlooms for Hospice (435 East Main Street) is a consignment shop, each and every item offered in the charity shop is carefully selected from the daily donations that the store receives. But, as newly-hired manager Jessica Feldhaus tells us, no useable item goes to waste. Anything that doesn’t make the cut for the shop is donated to other charities throughout the area. Heirlooms also often donates books for the local library fundraiser.
With rotating specials, shoppers are sure to find a bargain every day of the week and if you’re looking for season-appropriate decoration, Heirlooms has plenty on offer including lots of Halloween-themed decoration at the moment. And of course, it’s shopping with a feel-good factor as proceeds from your shopping spree are donated to the hospice facility Hope West.
Located on the same block as Heirlooms is Pollux (433 East Main Street) where owner Jessica Lopez offers fresh and trendy apparel and accessory for ladies. Lopez regularly visits Los Angeles to see what’s trending in the fashion industry and brings her favorite looks back to both the Montrose and Grand Junction locations. What does Lopez say is on the radar for fall?
“Fall fashion trends that will do great in Montrose this year are super soft tops and sweaters, long (duster) cardigans, fall color jeans, and flannels that can be worn alone or as a light jacket over a basic top with jeans.” All of Lopez’s recommendations are currently available at Pollux with more options added regularly.
For footwear, locally owned D’Medici (316 East Main Street) offers quality brands for both men and women. As for what to expect for autumn, owner Debbie Blanchard is a fan of color. “I like color! Life is colorful,” she says, so expect to see a range of vibrant items that can be paired with neutrally-colored staples. Wear what you are comfortable with Blanchard says. “We have beautiful leather and wools, and they’re great for all ages. It just depends on how you put it together,” she says. D’Medici will also soon get alpaca wool which is a great alternative for those allergic to sheep’s wool and is actually softer.
Next door is She She boutique (340 East Main Street). “This fall the hot trends are embroidery, plaids, leather jackets, floral prints, and cozy soft sweaters, says owner Kimberly McGehee. A few choice items from She She Boutique include embroidered boyfriend jeans from Tribal and cotton tees from Johnny Was. “Our faux leather jackets from French Dressing have a feminine fit with a classic style,” she says. “We offer these styles in a variety of options to fit your budget and body type.”
Since opening in 2005, SheShe Boutique has changed owners but the quality and service has never changed. “My staff and I are committed to finding clothing that makes women feel confident and beautiful whether it be an everyday outfit or something for a special occasion,” says McGehee. “We also offer personal styling.”
Now that your wardrobe is fresh and season appropriate, it may be time to change up your home’s decor to match the season. In addition to Tiffany, Etc and Heirlooms, another local favorite is the almost one-year-old Finders Keepers (147 East Main Street). Opened last November, Finders Keepers is home to several vendors that between them offer everything you will need to freshen up your home for autumn from furniture and home decor to jewelry and alpaca fiber, which is a great option for crafters looking to make their own scarves and gloves for the chilly autumn days ahead!
