Tie Dye is Back



We have a new vendor, Designs by Agi. I say new in that she has only been with the Boulevard at Noda for 2 or 3 months. Her work is half tie dye and half kids clothing with hand crocheted appliqu├ęs. Well...her tie dye work is amazing and folks are buying her pieces with zest.

To tell you that tie dyed clothing is cool just might sound a little too weird. Well, I am here to tell you her quality of the dying and the quality of the original garment is why this works. The colors are vivid, the styles are modern and feminine...so its a great new way to bring tie dye back!

Hey Charlotte...Noda ROCKS!

The Boulevard is a hidden gem. I am of course, very biased since I work here. But I hear from just about everyone who walks in that they LOVE our shop...even guys tell us that! So why is it that so many Charlotteans stay away? Is Noda a scary place or are we just too far from the beaten path to take the drive?

Just about every business here in Noda has been featured in the news, front page in various newspapers, magazine articles including all the major travel magazines, awards and the list goes on. With so many businesses in Noda making the news...we still remain 'unvisited' by much of Charlotte.

The visitors bureau told me that Noda was the most requested area of town. So we definitely have a good thing going. So, if you have not visited Noda yet and you live in Charlotte. Make it a priority.
