Clay & Cotton The first Clay & Cotton store opened by Margaret Taylor and her husband David Schreiner sold little more than one line of women's apparel and assorted pottery displayed inside a historical Victorian home. Today the boutique spans three stores stocked with women's apparel from brands such as Nic + Zoe, XCVI, and Kial as well as home décor from around the globe. The light scents of soaps and lotions from Cucina and Archipelago complement the fragrances of the stacks of clean-burning Voluspa candles. Area rugs and bedding from Company C stylishly cover floors and beds, and pottery and glassware stand ready to hold fresh apples or be hidden inside a thickly padded Perlina travel bag when visiting relatives arrive with pet bulls in tow.
Realizing that she had a passion for dressing her daughter in unique clothing, Ashley Bonner was inspired to open My Bel Amour, a showcase for children’s clothing designs.

Though the shop is predominantly girl centric, Ashley's little dudes department features plenty of style for budding fellas.
