In less than two months, Local Entrepreneur, Arlene Aranzamendez, will be celebrating the one year anniversary launch of her first brick and mortar boutique Atelier (currently at 7892 Camargo Rd., Cincinnati, OH, 45243). This week, Aranzamendez announced she is in the process of moving the store to a new retail location in Hyde Park Square (2716 Erie Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45208; 2nd floor).
“It’s been a developmental year for our business,” said Aranzamendez. “Our signature handmade jewelry line Konstantin was picked up by several reputable vendors including Antrhopologie.com and the The Autry National Center Museum in Los Angeles – most recently, Nasty Gal has requested to carry our line.”
In addition to Konstantin, Atelier also offers curated custom and designer clothing, as well as other accessories such as handbags, antique jewelry clothing and gifts.
“Hyde Park Square will be a great new home for our boutique – we couldn’t be more excited,” added Aranzamendez.
