Some Charlotteans may remember this unique store from its NoDa days (where it was originally located) and I must tell you when I heard that it was closing, I had shoppers withdrawal! But alas, the shop popped up in the South End neighborhood and my shopping withdrawals were over. Yay!The Boulevard at South End
is a gift boutique featuring handmade works of over 20 local artists. In the space, you will find beautiful cards, jewelry, pet toys and just for the guys: a man cave section featuring cool t-shirts and more. The store prides itself in sharing handmade, local and affordable items for everyone. Upon visiting, this one stop gift shop you can find something interesting at every turn! Here are a few items that caught my eye on one of my recent visits
