Kim's Boutique Adds a New Location in Sturgeon Bay
By Laurel Ciohon
Kim's Boutique in Egg Harbor has always been a go-to shop for women in Door County and beyond, so when a second location was added in Sturgeon Bay, I had to check it out! Known for it's beautiful clothing and accessories, Kim's Boutique has been in business since 2012 in the Main Street Shops. With the success of the flagship store, Audrey Milbach, Kim's owner, decided it was time to expand. Located in the former retail location that held Maurice's, Kim's new shop has taken over the bright, modern space and officially opened for business on July 2, 2019. Kim’s Boutique was named after Audrey’s cousin and best friend who passed away after a long battle with breast cancer. Kim’s lifelong dream was to own a boutique, so, in her memory, Audrey named her store after her cousin.
Still filled with summer items, the Sturgeon Bay shop manager, Beth, mentioned that fall items are starting to roll in. As I browsed around, I noticed several of the same brand favorites that Audrey carries in her Egg Harbor location: Miss Me, Chalet, Smash, Erotta, Jess & Jane, and Umgee, to name a few. Beautiful, flowing tops, flattering dresses, cropped shorts, and light summery sweaters were just a few of the clothing pieces that stuck out to me. This location even had men's items, something the Egg Harbor location does not.
The beach theme and rustic wood floors felt like a true Door County shop. But there’s so much more than just clothing! Kim’s has so many things a woman can indulge in. Gorgeous jewelry, wall art, beautiful scarves, cozy PJs and socks are just some of the items found at Kim’s Boutique, plus heavenly-smelling soaps and beauty products from Logan Creek Soap and Door County Lavender. At the Egg Harbor location, Audrey has a gift shop located next door, while in Sturgeon Bay, she has incorporated clothing and gifts into a one-stop-shop. Being the retro camper enthusiast that I am, I found a darling camper magnet with the phrase "Home Sweet Home," although there were several other items I would love to indulge in. Needless to say, I'm already planning my next shopping trip to Kim's!
"Kim's Boutique is a must-stop when in Door County. It is my favorite store for many reasons. Their customer service is top notch!"
"OMG! Not only is her fashion collection totally rockin', Audrey is like a having a personal fashion designer who takes the time to get to know YOU!"
"Kim's exceeded my expectations. Not only did they have the clothing that fit the vibe I wanted (and in my size!), their recommendations were perfect. Amazing clothes and wonderful service will bring me back again and again!"
Kim’s Boutique and Kim’s Gift Shop in Egg Harbor are located in the front building of the Main Street Shops (7828 Hwy 42) is open daily year round. Kim's Boutique in Sturgeon Bay is located at 1433 Egg Harbor Road. Follow Kim's Boutique on Facebook!
