Local Historic High End Boutique Offers Handmade Gifts, Tea Time

By Tatiana Ortiz

Owner Cindy Barsa from Perfect Pieces Boutique located in Brandon provides customers with a unique shopping experience.

“When customers visit the boutique, they can purchase a variety of items such as specialty gifts, high end furniture consignment, antiques and much more,” said Barsa.

Perfect Pieces Boutique has been in business for two years and the actual building itself has quite some history behind it.

“The boutique is located in one of the oldest houses in the Brandon area, which was built in 1925 and is listed on the National Historic Registry,” said Barsa. The 1,500 sq. ft. house was previously a church, restaurant and parsonage.

Behind the house is a 4,000 sq. ft. warehouse, which stores some of the high end consignment furniture pieces that is for sale. Also, customers can purchase gift baskets from Donna’s Gift Creation, which is also located inside the warehouse. Along with that, customers can purchase Emah & Fitz jewelry, which is made by Manager Sarah Weaver from Perfect Pieces Boutique. The boutique also carries Thymes candles, home fragrances, Baudelaire spa products, Chocolate and Clay paint.

Not only can customers enjoy a little piece of history while shopping, but the boutique offers other amenities as well. Currently on Thursdays at 3 p.m. the house is utilized to host tea time on a RSVP basis and eventually the business would like to expand. The boutique can host holidays events, art classes, birthday parties, Bible studies and baby showers to name a few.

On Saturday, December 5 the boutique is having a children’s Christmas event from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. The event is $30 per child, which includes a photo with Santa and making a couple of Christmas crafts in Santa’s workshop. The crafts can be used as gifts for parents and gift wrap will be provided. Join Mrs. Clause in the kitchen to decorate cookies and enjoy refreshments.
