Why Shop Small?



Why Shop Small


With big malls and major department stores virtually everywhere and the ability to get anything you want with the simple click of your mouse, it begs the question, “Why shop small…either in person or online?”

Quality, fair prices and good service, that’s why!

By choosing local, independently owned businesses, you get direct access to the owners and buyers who genuinely take the time to listen to their customers needs, not just the national trends.  And because small businesses and boutiques focus on certain specific merchandise, you’ll get a more knowledgeable and friendly staff with a better understanding of the distinctive brands they carry.

The same can be true online as well.  There is so much to see and choose from while perusing the inter webs, yet without the ability to touch it, feel it or in the case of fashion, try it on, it can be a bit overwhelming!

So why shop Hand in Pocket?

Whether you come in the store personally, or are shopping online, HIP feels like a beautiful extension of your closet.  Open 6 days a week, Hand in Pocket is one-of-a-kind…not a generic online retailer with thousands and thousands of “little black dresses” to sift through.  We are a true boutique with clothing and accessories curated for the modern woman to take her from day to evening and workday to weekend.  With a smaller inventory that mixes name brand and unique finds, it’s a safe bet you won’t arrive to a party to see 20 other women all wearing your same outfit.   And, a simple phone call will put you in touch with an experienced staff member who can literally walk the sales floor, pick up any item and answer questions about form and fit as well as give expert styling tips!

No small business can succeed without the support of the community and in return, the community also benefits.  Hand in Pocket proudly supports local artists, charities and contributes to fundraising activities for schools in our community.

But perhaps the BEST reason of all to shop Hand in Pocket is because unique style is just that, unique.  And Hand in Pocket is truly a unique store.
