Cricket is a boutique in its truest form.
As you walk toward the tall brick building on Wine Street, glimpses into the windows reveal kitschy handbags, glittering jewelry and the soft pastel colors of a spring home decor line that is slowly edging its way into the zone of emphasis.
Women's blouses designed for professionals hang easily in one corner of the small shop, with home decor, gift items and jewelry sprinkled throughout the layout.
Most days, you'll find shop owner Kitty Favre smiling at you as you walk through the door.
"We want to give people an all-inclusive shopping experience, so they don't have to go to the mall necessarily," she says.
Favre also has a "Featured Item of the Week" section, where shoppers can find additional merchandise marked off by 50 percent.
Jewelry is the shop's strongest seller, though, including unique designs by national designers as well as fashions crafted by locals.
Prices start at $12.
