This week in SHOP TALK, we continue to roll out content from our Shopping annual with a glimpse at the new Shepherd’s store. Here’s a glimpse of the original article by Kristin Braginetz.

The third location of Shepherd’s is also the biggest. At 5,000 square feet, the space allowed owner Marlene Shepherd room to bring in home decor items such as ottomans and love seats. It also provides room for a range of styles: the store is laid out in vignettes, with each nook exuding a different vibe.

The Look: Dramatic, elegant, and eye-catching.

Perfect for: Ladies who lunch, world travellers, and any professional woman who wants to develop a sophisticated, confident style.

USP: Fashion shows, trunk sales, seminars … Shepherd’s isn’t just a store, it’s a network of stylish ladies.

Shepherd’s, 145 Trainyards Dr., 613-366-2171.
