Crossroads Cottage, 25 S. London St., Mount Sterling, celebrated its grand opening on March 10.

Owned by Tamra Hall and Julie Nichols, the French-inspired boutique sells home decor, florals, casual wear, antiques, and furniture, along with artwork and jewelry by local vendors.

The boutique also offers formal wear for girls and women for prom, homecoming, and blacktie events. The store can help brides with bridesmaid dresses and soon will offer tuxedo rentals.

The formal wear offerings are made possible through Crossroads Cottage’s partnership with  Valerie Heiby, owner of Grove Chic Boutique in Grove City. Heiby, who sells casual wear at Urban Pineapple in Mount Sterling, created Sterling Chic Boutique to sell formal wear at Crossroads Cottage.

“We want to provide a centralized point for students in local school systems to come for their prom and homecoming dresses. This way, they don’t have to travel far,” Hall said. “We’ve already had lots of girls coming in to try on and buy dresses.”

The shop is open Thursday-Sunday. For hours and more information, visit “Crossroads Cottage” on Facebook or call (614) 271-2316.
