On the Town: New Boutiques Open in Middleton and Verona
Winter has kept us cooped up, but with the big thaw we’re ready to hit the town and explore a few new places. Just in time, two new boutiques worth a visit have popped up.
If it’s a dress you’re in the market for, Middleton Dress Company is a store dedicated to helping you score the perfect one. The offerings are diversion: With a myriad of styles, colors, and sizes, this new shop can dress you up for a range of occasions.
Co-owners Linda Lenzen and Sheryl Batten say the goal is to keep their racks packed with a variety of dresses from classic, professional work dresses to lush, extravagant gowns.
But Middleton Dress Company offers more than just girly frocks. They also specialize in dress alterations. So if you have an old dress in your closet that you love but may need some sprucing up, let Lenzen and Batten work their magic. They can make simple sizing adjustments or completely revamp the dress’s look. The store even offers custom made gowns, for the dress of your dreams.
Of course, you’ll need the right accessories to go on top, which is where K.T. & Co. Boutique, located in Verona, might come in handy. From trendy jewelry to statement purses, accessories are the name of the game at this bright and inviting boutique with a comfy seating area and sunny walls.
The boutique offers a wide selection of name brand items from Pandora jewelry to Vieta handbags, but it also stocks fares from community artisans.
“We’ve got jewelry from local artists that fills up the front of the store,” explains Ted Hall, husband of Co-owner, Keri Hall.
