Gibson Island — Brightside Boutique, a fun, funky fashion and gift store with roots in Baltimore, has opened up a new location in Annapolis.
Sassy options for Anne Arundel shoppers include mugs adorned with catchy phrases like “Not Today Satan” and shirts that read “Annapolis Babes Do It Better” and “Navy Babes.”
Brightside, which opened downtown at the end of May, has been making its own edgy merchandise — a number of pieces include profanity — for the past four years.
“We would spend hours searching for the right brand, and realized we should just make our own,” says owner Christie Vazquez, who worked for Diane von Furstenberg, Nanette Lepore and Rag & Bone before opening her line of boutiques.
T-shirts range from $30 to $32. Mugs are $14.
Brightside Boutique is located at 30 Market Space in Annapolis. Call443-775-5069 or visit shopbrightside.com.
