The latest addition to the Dilworth Business Series is the collaborative boutique, Summerbird, located on the ever-popular East Boulevard!  Summerbird is best described as a “collaborative boutique” – meaning, one-of-a-kind consignment pieces on display with a boutique feel.If you are on the hunt for a unique outfit for an evening out or just want to kick your wardrobe up a notch, Summerbird is the place for you.With custom built wracks of dresses, denim, shoes (Louboutin boots!), & accessories all set to the background of a charming Dilworth bungalow, your shopping experience at Summerbird will be anything but dull!
Whether you have items to consign, or are looking for a few extra pieces, this eclectic boutique will be sure to cater to you. Recently we had the chance to catch up with owner, Cindy Siesel, to get her take on why Summerbird is one-of-a-kind and why you MUST pay it a visit!  Take a look at a few photos we snapped, a fun Q&A, and be sure to check out their Facebook page for updates on their events!
