Boho House is new to the Cookman Avenue home decor shopping scene (doors just opened on March 23rd).

It combines them with the streamlined, relaxed features of the modern.” Her shop is the spot for anyone looking for a new bohemian accessory to add to a shelf, wall, or table. The boutique has decor galore, including wall decor items such as a variety of rattan baskets to fill up an empty wall space, a macrame fringe hammock fitting for a backyard, a jute rug, or chic candle holders. Melissa includes items in her shop made by women all over the world, and 70% of the vendors featured at Boho House are female-owned businesses. “The thought is to have designated shelf space featuring their work for a set amount of time- their pop-up brick and mortar. Think shelf space, pop-up events, local support, a pick-up spot for orders, and even a place to build content and create,” Melissa explained. Melissa has ten local creators scheduled to fill the shelves of Boho House through the end of the year.

While this shop is best known for its eccentric clothing + consignment inventory, it is sometimes easy to forget that Rebel Supply Co. has a ton of fun goodies for the home.

Visitors can forget about the expected butter dish; Rebel Supply Co. has one resembling a mushroom. There are no bland vases, but customers can purchase a peace sign vase (you get the idea). Visitors can expect the unexpected when it comes to home decor here — especially when rummaging through the carton of wall art.
