Sunset Sage Boutique now open for business
By PAMELA GRANT
Copperas Cove has a new boutique in town, the Sunset Sage Boutique.
The Sunset Sage Boutique, located upstairs at 2210 East Business 190, held a soft opening Sunday from 10:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.
The new boutique sells a variety of fun items, many of which are handmade (though not all of them). They offered various articles of clothing, tumblers, wax melts, jewelry, and more.
Isabella Blakely, store owner, said that she previously sold wax melts and boutique clothing, but wanted to open a store with opportunities to support other vendors as well.
Blakely is planning to use her boutique to support other military spouses by giving them a place to sell their own products. In exchange for giving them a location to sell their products, Blakely takes a small percentage for herself.
“We had this idea in early May and signed in June,” said Blakely. “My husband said, ‘If you want to do it, let’s do it.’”
She said that she doesn’t think that Cove has a lot to offer store-wise, so she feels like Sunset Sage Boutique will be a big success.
“It’s falling into place perfectly,” said Blakely.
Blakely said that she already has about 15 or 16 different vendors including a few from out-of-state military spouses.
“We are open to having a variety of people in here,” said Blakely who said that she would consider non-military affiliated vendors as well. Those interested in becoming a vendor at Sunset Sage Boutique can stop by the store to talk with Blakely during regular business hours.
“I think it is something that Copperas Cove needs, and they offer a variety of products,” said Taylor Hart about the boutique. “I love the wax melts especially.”
The store’s official grand opening won’t be until August 5. They are open Tuesday- Thursday from 10:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. They are closed Sundays and Mondays.
Anyone who purchases any item from Sunset Sage Boutique for the month of July will go into a drawing for a giveaway of one item or store credit.
