What began as a small operation out of founder Jennifer Velarde’s studio apartment is now a celebrated handbag business with three stores in two cities, an online boutique, and a slew of media accolades from magazines such as InStyle, Good Housekeeping, and Real Simple. The business owes its proliferation to Velarde’s touted lineup of custom-designed shoulder bags, bridal clutches, and totes. The creative trendsetter also provides her customers with a bevy of fabric swatches and styles so they can create their own designs during in-store or at-home handbag parties.
Boston CityWalks’ owner, Alan Maltzman, loves to show his passion and knowledge for his city. At Boston CityWalks, he and his coterie of guides lead six different tours that roam the city’s historic cobblestones, highlighting areas such as Harvard Square, the waterfront, Beacon Hill, and various Jewish cultural sites. He can also design a custom tour for any occasion such as family vacations, engagements, birthdays, reunions, and business meetings.
The friendly staff will answer any and all questions with a professional demeanor that makes unmentionables comfortably mentionable. They are also masters of measurements, so take advantage while in the store. A properly fitting bra can reduce back strain and annoying fractal imprints left behind from too-tight undergarments. Pick up a throng of the comfortable Hanky Panky thongs ($18 apiece), or splurge on an Aubade bra ($127) that feels more like an extension of your body than an article of clothing. Wrap up inside a luxurious Mary Green kimono silk robe ($90), or take this Groupon to bed with an Eberjey pajama set ($110). Tell your girlfriends to grab today's deal so you can take your time browsing for your next favorite pair of underwear with the ladies.
