Continuing the vibrant and growing small business community here, Boutique Anya opened its doors last week at their Exchange District location. I made a quick stop to check the new shop and found myself meeting the owner, Alicia. The shop carries curated pieces from all over the world that are not only fashionable but also meaningful. Alicia likes the idea of having products with stories. Boutique Anya specializes in representing clothing and jewelry manufactured by artists who focus on local production. Whether it's the Scandinavian-African Moyi Moyi bags or proudly Canadian clothing brand, Sympli, Boutique Anya promises to offer fashion pieces with a lot of character. The shop is located at 88 Albert St and is open Monday to Saturday from 11am to 6pm.
