iKandie Boutique: Last Store Standing


Okay well, while iKandie Clothing boutique is hardly the last store standing in the East Atlanta Village, it is one of the last boutiques, its neighbor House of Bling recently emptied its racks and closed its doors. One would think there was a curse on trendy boutiques that settle into the eccentric community of East Atlanta Village. While restautants like the Graveyard Tavern, the East Atlanta Restaurant and Lounge (affectionately refered to as The EARL), and Grant Central Pizza have had great success in the East Atlanta Village, most boutiques such as the trendy children's boutique Blah Blah Boutique and House of Bling haven't had the same luck. Perhaps the secret lies in the real estate. iKandie boutique has been arround for atleast 2 to 3 years, could be more, but before iKandie made its debut, that very same space was that of Pieces of Adrene. Pieces of Adrene was the most successful boutique I'd seen in East Atlanta and probably stayed around the longest. Adrene moved her boutique over the Castleberry Hills area in Atlanta in a larger space and in an area she felt was her market. Then along came iKandie! iKandie does live up to its name. No particular labels sold in the store but the clothes are fabolous just the same. The prices are really affordable, most of the pieces are unique and under $100 and the accessories are under $25. Watch the window for sales as well, iKandie just recently had a sale for 50% off all the clothing store! Can't beat that! I give iKandie boutique an over 4 pumps up! Great prices, great mix of cloting and accessories, and pretty good customer service. Love that combo! Visit iKandie Boutique at 493-A Flat Shoals Ave Atlanta, GA 30316
