New Boutique Opens in Holliston

by Chris Cain
December 12, 2018

Lindsay Buonomano, pictured below, is the owner of Holliston's newest downtown business.  Recently this reporter interviewed Lindsay, a fellow Connecticut transplant, to get some insights about the new venture.

Lindsay always wanted to run a boutique and she found that opportunity on Zillow, an online real estate site, in late September of this year.  Her goal was to have the former Kamala space ready for business before the Holiday Stroll.  She achieved her goal, opening a week before the stroll, allowing employees to get up to speed for the Stroll.

'Market' at 763 Washington Street was created to provide a platform for local artisans. There is jewelry made in Franklin and Natick.  Some of the pottery is made in Wrentham.  Fine woodworking items come from B2 Designs in Medway -- and her husband, who does custom-built furniture.  The ornate trestle table below is an example of his handiwork.

Lindsay uses an 'accessible pricing' method for the items she stocks.  Currently the stock includes young contemporary clothing and accessories, hostess gifts, pottery, and a beer making section.  In the future she has plans to add more clothing -- especially now that there are two brand new changing rooms in the shop.  She also will be expanding the offerings in the bath and body area.

Not only is the boutique a place to shop, Lindsay would love to have small private parties such as showers or book club meetings happen at 'Market.'  She is hoping that her visitors will offer suggestions about what additional items might round out the boutique's offerings.

When I asked her about opening her shop in such close proximity to established stores, she replied that she sees "her niche to be complementary to things that are sold in other downtown shops."  She also pointed out (without prompting) that Sue Conroy of Gracefully Restored and John Paltrineri or Fiskes have been very helpful in getting 'Market' up and running.

Today's visit was an 'assignment' for me.  The next time I visit, I will definitely spend more time in the beer section!
