Owner of Bee Free Boutique Angie Freeman comes from a long line of beekeepers. Seriously – a photo of her beekeeper grandfather is about to adorn one of the walls upstairs near the dressing room. Originally from North Carolina, Freeman named her first boutique for her bee-filled upbringing, combined with the first part of her last name.
Bee Free. which officially opened Thursday, is located right next to the week-new L&E Oyster Bar on Silverlake Boulevard and has a homespun decor: Think antique hutches, oak floors, lots of mirrors and antlers for dangling necklaces and earrings.
Some of the labels carried here include jeans by Prayer for Mother Nature and Work Custom, lingerie by Top Secret, as well as tops and cocktail dresses from Aryn K, Amanda Uprichard, Brokedown and Sugarlips.
Better make a beeline.
