The boutique has been carefully curated by Fashion Merchandiser, Agosto Cuellar, to provide an elevated experience while hunting for treasures and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Adjacent to the nonprofit’s traditional Blanco store, Accents offers fashion-forward shoppers an array of cultivated values on gently-used and now new jewelry, belts, hats, purses, scarves, and other items fit to make a statement. You can even spot vintage pieces you can’t find anywhere else. The Jewelry is within two price points – 2 for $5 and 2 for $10, while other pieces are priced individually. Whether treasure seeking for yourself, needing to find the perfect gift, or wanting to accentuate a costume for Halloween or a themed event, items at Accents are unique and always different with new items added daily. The boutique will feature a name brand every week, including high-end brands like Brighton, Coach, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Betsey Johnson, and Dooney & Burke, to name a few.

As you walk into the store, you’re met head-on with the featured brand of the week and are immediately drawn to the perfectly curated pieces that Cuellar has carefully selected to place on display. He did a wonderful job of creating a true boutique experience by paying close attention to details and working tirelessly to give us the most elevated shopping experience possible. Rack after rack, you will find color-coordinated sections with incredible finds that range from vintage, gently-worn, and even new items with tags, as well. If you find that 6.5 Women’s Michael Kors Knee-high boots, you are in luck! They are never worn and in pristine condition. The sea of necklaces and bracelets on the floor-to-ceiling jewelry walls are truly impressive as the hard-working team has detangled, sorted, and coordinated by color, size, and length so all you have to do is pick out your stand out piece to love or gift. Designer and name-brand handbags, coin bags, wallets, and more only starting at $10, you are sure to make like a bandit when you shop at Accents!
