I'm totally in love with the boutique Sophie Roan, and not just because it's going to start carrying Black Heart Bunny clothing ;)
It's a tiny doll house of a boutique run by fellow indie designer, Liz Grenier!

This reviewer from the site explains the appeal of the boutique well:

Tiny Space with A Lot of Heart
Before I moved to NYC from Philadelphia, I spent most of my weekend jaunts trolling the shops and restaurants of the East Village, a neighborhood I still love for it’s refusal to cow-tow to Starbucks and other retail giants (although the rate of banks opening up on 2nd Avenue will make your head spin!)
I first happened upon Sophie’s store 2 summers ago and continue to hit her up for truly original designs. I think the small space speaks to the buyer's talent and keen eye for interesting pieces. I especially enjoy the fact that I rarely ever recognize any of the designers or labels. Sophie's room serves as a medium for new talent and those looking for the "next thing" in fashion. Plus, it always feels that much better to know your shirt/jacket/pants/etc came from an independent designer dedicated to creating and pursuing their vision :) "
I just finished making all the items for the order so it should be in store within the next month or so!!!
