Emily Grace Boutique is branching out, opening its first store in Mansfield on Oct. 3.
“I started in 2015 when we moved to Mansfield,” said owner Emily Rekieta, whose husband, Hunter, is a Mansfield native and graduate of Summit High School. “I’ve been working out of my home and Painted Tree. It’s gotten too big.”
Rekeita’s new shop will feature women’s clothes, handmade accessories, home décor and furniture pieces.
“We make 90 percent of our home décor and accessories,” Rekeita said. “You have to see my mom’s handmade wood earrings. They’re very lightweight.
“We design a few of our graphic tees, that say ‘Kindness Is Golden’ and ‘If the Stars Were Made to Worship, So Will I,’” Rekeita said.
Emily Grace Boutique will be a family-run shop, with designs by Rekeita and her mother, and staffed by Rekeita, her husband and mother-in-law.
A grand opening is set for 10 a.m. Oct. 3, with regular hours 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. Hours will be extended for the holidays.
The store will be at 1292 FM 157, Suite 110, across from Legacy High School and in the same shopping center as Mansfield Fine Jewelry.
