Just off the main drag of South Congress, the wooden floors of Feathers Boutique house gear for women all over the world. Each of the three rooms holds racks of vintage clothing. The threads are purchased from different designers across the globe, and Feathers also welcomes pieces from local creators. To the left of the main room is a smaller area that includes artisan jewelry and leather purses. A downstairs section includes most of the clothing, as well as placards and antlers on the wall. Fun accessories like tarot cards and sunglasses are complimented by warning signs with personality: for example, guests are warned to “please watch your beautiful head.”
