Worthington Welcomes Finery

City’s Newest Boutique Offers Beautiful, U.S.-Made Products Finery 4

There’s a new shop in Old Worthington, and although it looks nothing like the storefront’s previous tenant, Emlolly, there’s a familiar face behind the counter. Melanie Bunstine, co-owner of Emlolly, which now maintains an e-commerce presence, recently opened a new, specialty gift boutique called Finery.

The idea for Finery came about when Bunstine and her husband, Sam Baker (of Harold’s American Grille), who also own the building, were searching for a new tenant to fill the space left when Emlolly closed its brick-and-mortar shop. After an extensive search didn’t yield the right match, Bunstine decided to open her own store. Finery 1

On July 25, Finery opened to the public, eliciting a great response from the community. The store specializes in a variety of gift items that are exclusively made in the United States. From Mosser glass out of Cambridge, Ohio to Darren Gygi paintings from Pleasant Grove, Utah and tea towels and gift bags from Alice’s Cottage in Baltimore, Maryland, the store features a host of lovely, well-made items that all tell a unique story. Finery 3

“When I decided to open Finery, I wanted to offer things that were similar to what the old Curio Cabinet used to carry,” Bunstine said. “After an exhaustive search, I realized how difficult it is to find affordable, quality products that aren’t made overseas.”

One product that Bunstine is particularly excited about is a clothing line called Clara Sunwoo. Designed by a mother-daughter team in New York City, the collection features fashionable, comfortable, wrinkle-free pieces for women of all ages. If you haven’t yet heard of Clara Sunwoo, you likely will soon enough. The line has been featured numerous times on The Today Show and has garnered a cult-like following from a host of celebrities including Kathie Lee Gifford, Jane Fonda and Priscilla Presley. “I am so excited to carry Clara Sunwoo,” Bunstine said. “Before my store even opened, I had women calling to place orders.” Finery 5

After living and working in Worthington for many years, Bunstine is thrilled to provide the community with another great shopping destination. She is always on the hunt for new products and is already planning to offer a variety of holiday gifts. “Worthington is full of loyal customers who love local products,” she said. “We’ve been blessed with great supporters at our restaurant and look forward to the same with Finery.”  Finery 6

Finery is located at 667 N. High Street. The store is open Tuesday through Friday from 11a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Stop in to say hello and like them on Facebook.
