MONTCLAIR NJ – Kristen Zachares, owner and founder of The Eclectic Chic Boutique, will be celebrating her Grand Opening on April 15th at 4 Midland Ave in Montclair Center.  

The Eclectic Chic Boutique is a unique “artisan lifestyle shop”, carrying crafts created by skilled artists from all over the tri-state area. The shop is a collective of over 19 artists, each creating high quality, one of a kind, handmade crafts. Some of their most popular items include Bath Bombs by Rustic Soap, Sauces and Jams by SLUG Co, and handmade Jewelry by Mr.PipeDream.  

The Eclectic Chic Boutique is popping up inside of Studio PURE and The Natural Store, owned by Ahava Felicidad. Ahava is a holistic practitioner who specializes in natural hair and organic living, and is the owner of the brand Ahava Felicidad Hair and Body and creator of Felicidad Hair Sugar. Kristen and Ahava first met in 2016, and since then, the alliance blossomed into a powerhouse partnership.

Over the last few years, The Eclectic Chic Boutique has grown from being an online-only shop, to touring craft shows and vendor events, and finally having a brick-and-mortar location in the community. Now her loyal customers who would normally only be able to purchase these products from craft shows and vendor events, can shop for them in person at this location in the hottest shopping district in Montclair. The shop is also child and pet friendly, creating an inclusive shopping environment. 

The Pop Up Shop is open to the public two to three times a month, and the loyal client base of Ahava Felicidad Hair and Body can also shop during their consultations. This alliance has helped Ahava to show more support for the creative community that she embraces. 

For Kristen, the physical location has increased sales potential for her and her various artists. “For the last couple of years, our sales opportunities have been limited to seasonal events, generally lasting from May through December. Since opening the Pop Up in February, we've not only had an increase in sales, but also gained more visibility and have a greater sense of stability.” 

Join us from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm on Saturday April 15th, at The Eclectic Chic Boutique for our Grand Opening Celebration. We'll have free hot and cold beverages and treats for the kids. The first 20 customers will receive a free goody bag of product samples and coupons. There will also be a raffle for larger prizes, such a limited release book by author Kristina Garlick and samples of Felicidad Hair Sugar.

Sign up for The Eclectic Chic Boutique e-newsletter to stay up to date on the new Pop Up store schedule, special savings offers, and new products in the shop – or call 862-221-0644.
