nestled in echo park you are immediately
transported to another world. it's a combination
of nineteenth century bohemian prairie mixed
with twentieth century evening glamor.we spent a
sunday afternoon with erin and got a feel for
her world. she energetically greeted us but then
quickly apologized and excused herself.
she was already working with a customer
when we walked in and erin gives her full
attention to her clientele. it's refreshing.
she connects, and not in an impersonal put-on
retail kind of way. she creates relationships,
so when she's out finding pieces for her boutique
she usually has a customer in mind. erin opened
her store on a whim while driving by the vacant
store front on echo park avenue. with out
telling her husband, she signed a lease and
needed to open the doors in six weeks. it was
her husband who helped to create the world you
step into. there are beautiful custom shelves,
chandeliers, and a desk made from a vintage
filing cabinet.by the end of the day we felt
like we had created our own relationship
with erin, gave her hugs, then headed back out
into the real world. thank you erin for
spending a lovely afternoon with us.
stay tuned for looks from tavin boutique."
