Ess Tee Marie Boutique opens in G’town

Georgetown has a new business that has people talking. Stella Carrington has recently opened Ess Tee Marie Boutique.
“I actually started my business online in October and decided I was ready to open a storefront to give customers the opportunity to try on clothing before buying it,” Carrington said. “During our grand opening, 65 area women stood in line before the store opened, to receive special discounts and giveaways.”
The 24 year old Carrington says she is excited that her new business has local customers excited. She said she believes is important to know that women of all sizes and ages wear the clothing she is offering, including her 82-year-old grandmother.
“Right now I’m the only one running the boutique,” Carrington said, “but I hope to hire someone in late fall.
“We are located at 101 S. Apple Street behind the Brown County Courthouse. Ess Tee Marie Boutique focuses on affordable, trendy and unique women’s clothing and accessories primarily made in the USA,” she said.
Carrington continued,  “We plan on carrying a variety of sizes ranging from small, up to 3XL. We will also offer gift items such as tumbler cups, earrings, necklaces, shoes and bath bombs. Eventually we hope to add a unique line of candles and other items.”
Carrington said she enjoys meeting all the local customers who are looking for great clothing but not wanting to drive far distances.
“I have always enjoyed fashion,” she said. “And of course I love to shop. So I guess that’s what promoted me to take this great adventure. I’m a person who goes after what I want. It’s been a lot of work, but I love hearing how much my customers love the things they’re seeing.”
Carrington admitted that she never expected to open a storefront location, but had planned to stay online with the business.
“I was driving by this location on my way to the post office one day,” Carrington said, “and just happened to see that it was vacant. After looking the building over I knew it was the perfect location and it was meant to be.”
