It was a well fought contest, so close that I was considering declaring a tie if the final vote ended up being close enough. But after boutique fans voted 851 total times and left more than 20 reviews and comments for the participants, came out as the champion of the Iowa City Patch Battle of the Boutiques. Tune in next week as we have a competition featuring local photographers.
Here are some reviews of White Rabbit left during the contest:
I love White Rabbit! The people are so friendly, the vintage selection is to die for, and the handmade items are fantastic! As a local crafter who sells items there, I can say firsthand how supportive they are of local artists.
White Rabbit is definitely my favorite - handmade (mostly in Iowa) COOL stuff sold by real friendly folks. Great coffee, too!
White Rabbit! So important to support independent artists...and their art is amazing!
My fav place to shop downtown IC! Has great, original items!
White Rabbit narrowly hedged out friendly rival for the boutique title. Here are some reviews left of Revival during the contest.
Revival is the best!
Go Revival!! Love the new Online Store!
Revival is my favorite place to shop! I love the old the new and all of the in between! The staff rocks! "Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name" Cheers Revival!
didn't get as many votes as Revival and White Rabbit, but it did get several nice reviews. Here are a couple.
Any time I need a quick "pick me up" or am searching for the perfect pair of shoes to complete an outfit, Lorenz is the place to go. Local, great pricing, fantastic choices. The jewelry is gorgeous and special, and the shoes are devine. Add to that their fantastic staff and you have the perfect boutique.
Wonderful shoes and jewelry at reasonable prices at Lorenz 2.0 Shoes and jewels.
