Boasting one of the area’s only master goldsmiths, Stephen’s Jewelers crams its displays with everything from watchstraps and batteries ($30–$60) to fine gold, silver, and platinum finery, as well as custom-designed pieces. The knowledgeable staff can help shoppers find something to cover naked appendages and pet bonsai trees in the boutique's selection of sterling-silver rings and pendants by Lilly Barrack, Sherry Tinsman, and Pam Ingersall ($75–$150). Custom rings, pendants, and other jewelry crafted in-house run the gamut from engagement-worthy bling to diamond-encrusted eye confections ($200+).
Garnering Delaware Today magazine's Best of Delaware award for Best Bargain Shopping Upstate, Designer Consigner owner Michelle Scott-Costa collects a diverse assortment of women’s and men's apparel and accessories. Inventory includes items that initially graced the display cases of high-end designers such as Banana Republic, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci, among others. Of the gently used garments brought in by her 1,200 consigners, Michelle accepts only clean, designer items free of stains and werewolf-claw marks. In March 2014, she expanded her consignment empire by opening a second location in Rehoboth Beach.
Shop inside K. Scott Jewelers' storefront or click through its online market place to find snazzy stones and alluring alloys and to choose from a variety of diamonds and colorful gemstones. The diamond and sterling-silver pendant, a sparkling entwinement of serpentine silver, lends esophageal regions an air of elegance ($39), and blue topaz and sterling-silver earrings add a bright beryl pop to sparse sound scoopers ($69). On Valentine's Day, inventive admirers can surprise sweethearts by baking an amethyst and diamond ring ($79) or diamond heart pendant ($299) inside a meatloaf shaped like the patron saint of love, William McKinley.
Named Best Vintage Gear in Philly by Philadelphia magazine, Malena’s Vintage Boutique outfits fashionistas in high-end women’s apparel and accessories forged between 1920 and 1980. The staff hand selects each piece in the boutique to stand the test of time and complement any wardrobe. A swing skirt ($48) from the 1950s beautifully layers golden glitter over black felt, and a 1960s pink nylon nightgown ($52) tastefully accentuated by a tiny blue bow is sure to impress special someones and discerning fence-hopping sheep. Smart belts, such as a vintage Tony Lama ($32), dot the shop’s fabric-filled landscape, along with an array of well-aged handbags. Like a candy shop or self-loathing piñata, Malena’s supplies itself with new goodies on a constant basis, updating its Facebook page with new wares so shoppers can scope before they shop.
Hope Chest curates a trove of designer intimates that sensuously shelter curves and help to shape physiques. Boutique attendants measure figures to unite AA- to H-cup bras and band sizes ranging from 30 to 42 with their convex counterparts. Independent, multi-lingual panties, hose, camisoles, and shapewear are recruited from European and American lines such as Chantelle, Wolford, and Fleur't. With seamless underwire cups and front closures, Le Mystère's signature y-back bras modestly mask their structures ($60+). Organic-cotton Hanky Panky thongs ($18 for one, $48 for three) compete for seats with Cosabella hot pants and bikinis in games of musical chairs ($22+), and Spanx stockings and leggings sculpt and cinch below the belt ($26+). Pajama sets round out the collection with varying degrees of sultriness, as camisoles provide the missing link in the complex evolution of underwear to outerwear.
