CRESTVIEW — Simply Pink Boutique has become a one-stop shop for fans of handmade clothes and home decor.

Co-owner Jason O'Daniels and his wife April offer a variety of gifts from more than 30 vendors, and 20 direct-sales vendor catalogs, from Avon to Mary Kay, are available at the counter.

Each vendor rents space to sell his or her products; it’s an opportunity for residents — whether local or as far away as Georgia and Denver — who can’t afford their own brick-and-mortar establishment.

The result is a one-of-a-kind store where Hub City shoppers can buy handmade apparel, vendors said.

"There really is not a place like this in Crestview, that I am aware of," Kari Lyles said. "Now you have an alternative, especially if you are looking for something handcrafted."

Lyles, one of several military mom vendors, sells 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) embroidered merchandise for all ages.

Like most of the boutique’s vendors, she allows custom orders. She may embroider names on shirts or special messages for a soldier’s homecoming.
