Lately I’ve found it increasingly difficult to find boutiques that aren’t trying to sell Forever21 copycats for major bucks. So when I walked into Emporium in Coral Gables it was like a breath of fresh air. From the quaint, vintage feeling to the adorable pup that greeted me as I made my way through, I realized that Emporium is not your typical Miami store.
Owner Sara Zamikoff created the one-stop-shop almost by accident, as the charming boutique was the result of her journey to opening a coffee and tea shop. Emporium is the place to go if you’re looking for one-of-a-kind goods . Eclectic clothing, handcrafted accessories, unique housewares and even gourmet candy are some of the goodies that await in store. If you’re an accessory junkie like me you’ll appreciate Zamikoff’s selection of local and independent jewelry designs, like exotic jeweled bracelets from LALE.
With its great finds and affordable prices Emporium sets itself worlds apart from its Miami counterparts— making it the ultimate best kept secret.
