Customers will always leave with a piece of history after a day of shopping at Kathy’s E Boutique.

Starting out as collectors, the owner of the boutique Kathy and partner Ernestine have been sharing their love for vintage fashion with customers since 1988. The powder blue boutique located on Magnolia Boulevard offers vintage apparel from the 19th century to the present, for women and men.

Due to the proprietors getting their exclusive merchandise through private listing from state auctions, Kathy’s E Boutique is filled with rare antiques, including gloves, hats, dresses, jackets and shoes. Part of the shop exclusiveness comes from foreign customers, such as Japanese donors delivering their precious goods to the boutique. Numerous clients feel comfortable knowing their belongings are safe in the hands of Kathy and Ernestine.

“This one lady called us and said she had been here before and we didn’t know her from a can of paint. It happened to be a little lady she was about 70 or 80 years old, so I said why don’t you sit down for a second because I can see she was winded," said Ernestine. "She sat there for about 30 minutes while we continued to deal with the custumers. She said goodbye. The next day she called and said, 'I want you guys to have my things, I’ll be honored if you guys put my things in your store.'”

Like the merchandise, the design of the store is decked out with an array of vintage memorabilia such as an 1800’s Harper Bazaar magazine cover and antique furniture. When asked what’s the inspiration of the décor of the shop the duo responded stating it’s a reflection of their personality. While looking up into the ceiling hangs a 1950’s pineapple chandelier which compliments the “at home” feel.

“We wanted people to have a feel of just being at home, and that’s what we say to people - 'make yourself at home!' And they respond: 'Can we move in?'” said Kathy.
