Rainbow Bright

colorwheel collection!

Remember Roy G. Biv? No, not the jock you diddled in college — the colors of the rainbow, silly.

Find a dazzling arc of items at Colorwheel Collection, the Roslindale children’s boutique that opened quietly in September. The welcoming space carries indie-designer accessories and clothing (Hoosier Magnolia onesies, Not So Plain Jane barrettes), plus hard-to-come-by gifts.

Don’t leave without browsing the handmade memory books and scrapbooks crafted by local company Proof.

It’s like finding a pot of gold.

Colorwheel Collection, 4266 Washington Street, Roslindale (617-312-1783). Holiday gift preview, Thursday, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
