Like all things I love, Boheme was born from a dream, nurtured by passion, to leave the corporate world to utilize and grow my entrepreneurial mindset and my love for boutiques, clothing, and unique pieces. I wanted to better utilize my gifts of creativity, exercise freedom without hindrance from my typical 9-5 job, all while encompassing my love for people, fashion and clothing. In November 2022, I opened Boheme's first brick and mortar location in Edwardsville, Illinois; a wonderful town that I decided would be our forever home and place I wanted to raise my children. A town that I wanted to support, grow, establish lifelong friendships in, and see small businesses thrive. I compiled my interests and all things that make me happy and feel whole and created my safe place, my sanctuary, my dream, MY STORE: Boheme.
I started as a one-woman shop, often relying on family and friends for guidance, support, and (unpaid) hard work. Their support has been nothing short of amazing. One of the most amazing aspects of this job and sharing my ideas, creativity, interests, and fashion sense is the warmth, love, and support from our customers who are thrilled to have finally found a shop that gets them. We strive to provide a unique assortment of great goods and clothing at affordable prices and very much believe in quality over quantity. I attend business meetings, markets and fashion shows year round. Nothing brings me more joy than handpicking the items that are represented here at Boheme. We take great pride that we visually see and feel merchandise and establish close relationships with Reps and their brands before we buy for you.
We offer women's apparel and accessories, gifts, home decor and a small section of baby (coming soon to online)! We love bohemian fashion and unique pieces that encompass the latest trends, hints of vintage, and a little Rock n' roll. We encourage women to wear what they want and feel beautiful in. We want our customers to make a statement without ever having to say a word. Boheme caters to a wide range of ages; from styling newborn babies to the fashion-conscious 50 and up crowd. You'll typically find the staff barefoot and carefree, singing a little Janis or Stevie ... aiming to create an environment of femininity, creativity, kindness and zen. We love to inspire and to be inspired. Our goal is to deliver a fulfilling shopping experience every time you're with us.
Family owned and operated, we ship everything ourselves from Edwardsville, Illinois. Boheme is dedicated to deliver unique, quality curated clothing to our community and online fans. We carry handmade items from small businesses and also source from several brands that manufacture around the world. We embrace variety and versatility in fashion and aim to meet the continually evolving style and needs of our customers. From bohemian fashion, street styles to classics, and timeless to trendy looks; we recognize the necessities in a wardrobe and the simple fact that we all like and wear different. Our hope is that you feel unapologetically yourself every time you wear a piece from Boheme!
Peace & Love,
