Boutique Peek: Hoot + Louise (Part One)

Posted By on Tue, Feb 14, 2012 at 10:30 AM

We love local boutiques. Sure, we may have hightailed it to Southaven on a recent Sunday morning to get an edge on the other Jason-Wu-crazed Target shoppers, but when it comes down to it, our hearts belong to the unique flair of locally owned stores.

Which is why we're drawing your attention to one of our favorite things about South Main: A collection of stylish boutiques has popped up in this historic district over the last few years, and Hoot and Louise, a vendor of both vintage and contemporary items, is a true delight among them.

Owned by Anna Avant, the sweetly furnished store has also recently been home to vintage pop-up shop, Le Saispas, which resides in the back half of the building. Kristin Irène Young, the keen eye behind Le Saispas, spends considerable time scouring the Mid-South's vintage, thrift, and antique stores for roses among thorns.

We spent last Sunday with Anna and Kristin, playing dress up and reveling in the joys of vintage classics with contemporary appeal. Check back in tomorrow for a full report on the treasures we found...
