Kiel Progress briefs 2012
Sneak a Peek at new boutique

Sneak a Peek Boutique opened at 627 Fremont St. in Kiel in August, and owner Roxane Lisowe continues to bring a wide variety of new merchandise to the shop.

“With the recent return from a three-day buying trip to Chicago’s Merchandise Mart, I have a great season planned with new and exciting merchandise arriving— two to three shipments a week,” Lisowe said. “The merchandise is a wide array from fashion accessories to bar ware and garden accessories.”

Sneak a Peek Boutique offers affordable fashion accessories for all seasons, including jewelry, handbags, hats, pashminas and scarves with jewelry embellishments.

An additional room has been set up with garden items such as metal and glass plate garden stakes handmade locally.

Lisowe said she focuses on providing creative merchandising style, and is helped in the shop by daughter Mackenzie Bonde.
