BEST CLOTHING BOUTIQUE: doubledutch Boutique

Hampden residents know just where to go to find a deal on clothes -- and the word has spread. Doubledutch Boutique presents a unique blend of fashion that bucks what the typical shopper sees everyday, said co-owner Lesley Jennings. The store carries a variety of labels, everything from handmade selections to mass-produced lines. Both local and popular labels are available, a sense of variety Jennings said her customers enjoy. "When we first opened, we felt there wasn't a shop that offered that variety in the city," Jennings said. "We tend to look at things aesthetically, which may be retro in style. We're just fortunate that we can bring style and fashion that people like." Clothing labels such as Alternative Apparel, Flying Tomato, Bird on a Wire and Quicksilver are offered. When going through popular lines, Jennings said her staff will pick only items that fit the store's aesthetic style. Shoppers who prefer buying clothes, shoes and accessories that make people wonder where they got them are knowledgeable about the rare treasures available in doubledutch. "This is my first time in here, and I like what they have," Holly Boellner of Lutherville said this week. "When you have something that no one's seen before -- that's why you go shopping in a boutique." To further entrench itself in the community, the store offers a First Friday Shopper's Social event every month from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m,. complete with food, drinks and music. 3616 Falls Road, Hampden -- Kyle Taylor, special to b
