Don’t you just love the rush that comes from finding that rare bargain in a seamingly endless clothing bin? Most women would agree that the hunt is far more gratifying than the purchase. Bohemia Boutique satisfies the bargain hunter in all of us, especially us gals with a penchant for vintage. This little gem of a consignment boutique sits on the corner of N.
