We were early to the movies the other night, and my wife wanted to go in something called the Painted Tree Boutique. My heart sank, because I didn’t want to be late for the movie, and also because I was pretty sure that this was another junk/antiques(?) place that had taken over an old retail space. Boy was I wrong.
First of all, the place is bright and clean. There are individual stall or spaces, but they are all nice. I didn’t see used anything. No used clothes, books, magazines, shoes , or electronics. There are several boutiques, socks, candles, housewares, earrings, home decor, and much more. So a big variety.
Evidently this is the 31st Painted Tree Boutique. Some vendors are in multiple stores, and the booth owners don’t have to be present. I was there on a weekday morning and it was hopping.
The New Painted Tree Boutique is at 3704 East Franklin Boulevard, down from Books A Million.
