Are you sitting down? If not, please do. We’re about to drop a bomb on you.
Namely, Cherry Bomb, a new boutique that defies social convention — it’s owned by a girl and her soon-to-be mother-in-law. The bon marche got its moniker from two red chandeliers that dangle from the corrugated tin ceiling.
An accessible mix of contemporary clothing and handpicked accessories makes for easy impulse buying. Nab tops by Jamison, Splendid, and Gemma; Ali Ro dresses; Kendra Scott jewelry; Genetic Denim; plus purses and belts from local designers. Voluspa candles and Archipelago diffusers make pleasing but impersonal gifts for Facebook friends and aunts.
Everything falls in a livable $40-$300 range. And you’ll avoid South Beach parking rage in the front-of-store lot.
Think of it as the Cherry on top.
