Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogues, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy-camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of jewelry and home accents at 32 Flavors Boutique in Mooresville.
32 Flavors Boutique adorns nude necklines and exposed limbs with a distinctive display of handmade charms and home trimmings handpicked by owners Michaella and Jon Dalton. An eclectic establishment of original artwork, clocks, and home accents is offset by an assortment of gleaming jewelry. Decorate blank body canvases with creative flair with baubles such as a key necklace ($24), a set of two hairpins ($10), or black-bird earrings ($20). Equally funky artisanal pieces can adorn the naked wall-flesh of your homely home, whether it's a sign ($22) reminding you that what happens today appears on Facebook tomorrow or a purple-and-green polka-dot resin "Friend" frame ($16) displaying a picture of you making silly faces alongside your favorite of your multiple personalities.
As of June 24, 2011, 32 Flavors Boutique has moved to a new location in Huntersville.
32 Flavors Boutique
Although easily inserted into the name of, say, an ice-cream shop, the "32 flavors" in 32 Flavors Boutique represents something deeper than menu options. It's an expression of the boutique's diversity, and it's geared toward the modern woman. Inside the store, that diversity manifests itself in the form of the handmade jewelry, art, clothing, and other knickknacks that parade colorfully across the walls. The boutique's decor doubles as inspiration during jewelry-making classes, when groups gather to create their own earrings, pendants, and bracelets instead of planning a heist on local pyramids. Classes are offered in nonintroductory levels, too, such as advanced wire wrapping.
