The Unique Boutique

Hi, it’s Emily again. I hope that after reading my last blog you were inspired to better appreciate the little things in life that make you happy.

If there is one word to describe Charlotte’s Trove, it would be “unique”.  When customers enter, the first thing they notice is the woodwork handcrafted by the owner’s father. Then I hear something along the lines of, “Wow, this place is stunning; I’ve never seen anything like it before!”  So I am going to let you in on the features of Charlotte’s Trove that make us one of a kind.

I’ll begin with our Cafe because Chef DiAnna puts together a deliciously unique sandwich that is hard to come by around here. It was created in Buffalo, New York, by a German baker and became more and more popular over time. Beef on Weck is a roast beef sandwich on a kummelweck roll served with horseradish. All of our meat is prepared on site in our smoker. Since working here, I have learned to use a meat slicer and not just a little one. I mean the one with the huge spinning blade (which is something I never imagined myself doing). My coworker, Kiana, was operating the slicer before me and she made it look so easy; but then it was my turn. Let’s just say it was harder than I expected . . .


We are also currently showcasing unique works by a local artist, Lugene Carmosino DeLozier. Her paintings are on display for sale throughout the store and ALL of the proceeds are donated to the St. Vincent DePaul Food for Families. When you come to the Trove, be sure to take a look at Lugene’s work. (Cash or checks only, please)

Perhaps you’re feeling stressed out, bored, out of shape, or in need of a night out (maybe all of the above). Well, we have just what you’re looking for. On November 13th, 20th, and 27th, Becky Stevens, a registered Yoga teacher, will be here to lead Yoga classes from 7pm to 8pm at Charlotte’s Trove. You can either prepay $30 for all three classes, or $12 individually for drop ins. It will be a great time, so please try to join us.

Have you ever used essential oils?  We carry doTERRA essential oils, which are oils  extracted from plants (ex: peppermint, rose, lavender, etc.) They are in high demand because they provide a safe, natural way to boost your health. Here are a few of many benefits:

  • Relieve stress
  • Reduce pain
  • Improve sleep
  • Enhance memory quality

We’ve all had those days . . . when you’re in a hurry and E V E R Y T H I N G goes wrong. I’m sure you know exactly what I am talking about. Like when you’re running late and hit EVERY red light, forgot your credit card while you’re in line paying for groceries, spill your coffee all over the place, can’t finding a parking space . . . unfortunately, the list goes on. Luckily for you, we have the solution. Our locket necklaces contain an absorbent pad designed to difuse doTERRA essential oils. Just put a drop of your favorite oil on the pad and enjoy the benefits throughout your day. If you have been thinking about purchasing these unique doTERRA products, stop by and we’ll hook you up.  For more info, refer to our website.

You asked for it and you got it! Customers have mentioned wanting us to carry LipSense in our boutique, so we did exactly that. I tell you, this unique  lip product stays on ALL DAY. The reason LipSense lasts all day is because of its two step application process. First, you apply your favorite lip color with the sponge tipped applicator, starting with one corner of your lips to the other. Once the color has dried, apply another layer (it takes 2 or 3 layers for best results). To finish off your look, lock in place with the shiny (or matte) top coat. To ease the removal process, LipSense Ooops Remover is the way to go. LipSense is known to create a tingling sensation on your lips because it contains a cosmetic grade alcohol that gets rid of dead skin. But do not fear, the gloss has shea butter and vitamin E to help nourish your lips for healthier look. When your lips have completed the exfoliation stage, I swear, this product will be your holy grail; just give it time!

“What’s for dinner?”  It’s the one question asked daily in every household.  If you need unique new ideas, are in a time crunch, or maybe you just don’t want to cook . . just give us a call and we’ll take care of lunch or dinner for you.  We have a soup of the week, and a dessert of the week (plus a brunch special each Saturday).  Below is a link to our menu, which includes the cafe hours and phone number.

Cafe Menu

Charlotte’s Trove is the perfect place to shop for a unique gift. Here at the boutique, when we order our fashion clothing, we make sure that there are only one or two items of each size. Same with handbags and wallets; we only order one of two of the same style. This prevents our customers from wearing/carrying the same thing and gives us more variety throughout the store. (No more worrying you’ll show up in the same shirt as a family member/friend).  Come and take a look around . . .

One last thing I want you to be mindful of as I close this up . . . This is the first year that Charlotte’s Trove is a participating in the Fall Country Store Tour. If you visit all 11 locations, you will be entered to win a gift certificate. Below I have listed the days of this event as well as the hours it will be held.
