Forget shopping online for clothing you’re not sure will fit and then have to return them with expensive return shipping charges. It’s not worth the time, trouble and expense for me. I prefer to experience shopping the beautiful boutiques located in my backyard of Wenatchee, Leavenworth, Cashmere and Lake Chelan.

AND not only do I get to shop, I can wine taste and have lunch in one of the many good restaurants that keep popping up everywhere. I encourage you to get out and experience these boutiques as well as all the other small businesses that exist in our backyard. Click on each boutique name for further information, photos and location.
