Children’s Boutique To Open Sept 4 in Downtown Clayton

Clayton and area residents will soon be able to buy children’s clothing locally. Holly Lee and her sister Crystal Braxton, along with their mother, Jeanne Bagwell will open Sugar Pea Boutique at 227 E Main Street in downtown Clayton on Saturday, September 4. The store will feature boys and girls clothing from infant to 7 years old along with a selection of accessories and gifts.

“As mothers ourselves we wanted a boutique nearby with cute, trendy clothes at a price that we wouldn’t mind paying ourselves,” said Holly Lee.

Co-owner and sister, Crystal Braxton said, “Being from the area and always frequenting downtown Clayton, we thought it was the perfect spot and we love the hometown feel.”

All three agreed that starting their own business in this economy is very scary, but their mother and co-owner, Jeanne Bagwell said, “With the support from the Clayton Development Association, our landlords, (Ernest and Joyce Blackley) and all the local business owners, the process has been very comforting. We think this experience will be great.”

“This is exactly the type of store we are trying to attract to downtown Clayton. There is a need for quality clothing stores in Clayton, especially for children and Sugar Pea Boutique will help fill that niche,” according to Downtown Development Coordinator, Bruce Naegelen.
