Handcrafted Pieces from a Unique Boutique

Unlike stores such as Etsy (pronounced “Etzy,”) where it is often difficult to find the best Etsy shops and even the best selling items on Etsy (due to the massive amount of sellers,) The Boutique Butterfly offers a quaint and unique specialty boutique experience. The Boutique Butterfly offers high quality, unique products in categories that make life blissful, and merchandise presented is chosen for being some of the best products that can be found in that category, in our opinion.  We even use products that contribute to amazing foundations to give some love back to people in our communities.  Click HERE for more about Our Foundations.  You don’t need millions of sellers.  You simply need the best!  So find something better than Etsy…find your bliss on The Boutique Butterfly!!!

About our Founder

The Boutique Butterfly was started by entrepreneur, Kimberly Franklin, in hopes of creating a unique boutique that offered an array of handmade artisan goods with an emphasis of supporting artists and businesses in the USA.  While currently only an online store, in the near future, Kimberly will be adding artistic and inspirational classes in different media with an array of instructors demonstrating many techniques. You will be able to create artwork and inspirations, and to explore and follow your very creative journey!  Classes will be added upon the completion of the retail store and gallery, which will be located in a soon-to-be-announced "brick and mortar store" location, somewhere in St. Petersburg, Florida.  Kimberly's media include but are not limited to, painting oil on canvas, watercolor, mixed media, decorative tiling, and polymer clay, and general crafts in home decor.

Once a pharmaceutical representative for 18 years, Kimberly decided to finally let go of the corporate world of fast, furious, and "crazy" to finally surrender and follow her passion of art and creativity. The results are joyful, blissful and in harmony with her true spirit and talents.

So free your soul and follow your bliss because butterflies are always free to fly...
