Each week, Newton Patch takes a look at its favorites around town in a top five list. Check back each week to see what what we recommend and give us your suggestions!
If you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of corporate retail chains, it's time for you to take a break and take your shopping fever to one of Newton's many boutiques.
This week, our Patch Picks is featuring five local boutiques, and like last week's spotlight on local non-profits, it's pretty difficult to feature five places that will make everyone happy. So, if you want to give a shout out to your favorite boutique, make sure you do it in the comments section below.
If you have suggestions for future Patch Picks, e-mail us! You can reach Editor Melanie Graham at Melanie.Graham@patch.com.
