Westfield resident Holli Godsey jumped at the chance to move her clothing boutique, Unraveled, from Carmel to Westfield when the opportunity presented itself.
“I was on my way to work one day, and I passed by the space,” Godsey said. “I saw that it was for rent, and I just kind of jumped on it. This location is better for exposure. I wanted something with a better aura for a boutique. Westfield is growing, and I thought it was a great time to get in here and bring something different to the area.”
The store sells contemporary clothing and handmade local home decor.
“I mainly sell young contemporary clothing or contemporary clothing. Some people think it’s for younger people but I have people of all ages shop here,” she said. “If you like the style, then wear it. I have a lot of local art that is done by local artisans. I have a handful of vendors that create the local art. They also do some jewelry lines.”
The price point is $20-$40 for a top, and nothing is over $55. Godsey is the sole employee. She was previously a stay-at-home mom.
“This is full time for me. I’m a one-woman show. We moved up here from Terre Haute two years ago. My husband decided to transfer (jobs),” she said. “We wanted a better life for my daughter. She’s almost 5 now. We heard Hamilton County, and especially the Westfield area, is good for children and raising a family, so we moved. I was a stay-at-home mom before opening the shop. I’m such a creative person that I was getting antsy, and I wanted to do something for myself which I hadn’t done in a long time.”
The boutique is at 108 E. Main St. in downtown Westfield and is open noon to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, noon to 5 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays and noon to 3 p.m. Saturdays.
