Notorious in Boca Raton is the image of three women donning trench coats and berets, stepping in unison. Etoile Volin and her husband designed the distinguishable logo for her eponymous store, which has been dressing the Boca woman for 35 years. When asked for her favorite pieces, Volin says, “Everything is my favorite. If it isn’t my favorite, I don’t buy it.”

The store was once located where The Seagate Hotel & Spa now stands on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. Nina Raynor opened the boutique in 1958 so she could outfit her country club friends. Bob and Joanne Wollenberg bought the store more than 20 years later and brought it to its current location where the ambience is meant to feel elegant and like home. (One of Joanne Wollenberg’s most important requests was that there be a working fireplace in the store.) The shop has since been taken over by the Wollenberg’s daughter, Cathy Ann Sauer, and son, Bobby Wollenberg. Evening wear is Nina Raynor’s specialty, with brands such as Lela Rose, Talbot Runhof and Fuzzi. Expert alterations are offered in-house.

Blings & Things
The “blings” are jewelry pieces, and the “things” are accessories from luggage sets, to cellphone and iPad cases, to purses and more at the boutique in Pineapple Grove in downtown Delray Beach. The store was founded by Canadian couple Maryse Boisvert, a fashion stylist and personal shopper, and Tristan Bavaria, who designed the Florida store himself. The white and gray floor tiles paired with chandeliers and a black damask wallpaper create a European backdrop for shoppers.

Footwear is the family business. It started with Vince Canning Shoes, a local retail icon situated in Delray Beach since 1952. And when the store across the street, Tootsies Delray, went up for sale, current owner LaRonda Denkler decided to make an offer. The store uses cream and coral colors with gold accents and comfortable couches for trying on shoes from designers like Lucky Brand and Sam Edelman.

Robert Sarasohn travels annually to Europe to handpick the selection of eyewear he sells at Grove Optics in Boca Raton.

The Regency Collection
Spot a box wrapped in gold with a black bow knotted at the top, and it’s a good guess that the carrier purchased its contents at The Regency Collection. The wrap has been a signature to the store since its opening over two decades ago, when Linda Gefen and Robin Rose decided to sell upscale gifts and accessories at the Boca storefront.

Shop gifts for boys, girls, infants and babies to mother-daughter matching outfits at Elegant Child.

The duo has since sold a large selection of European, Australian and hard-to-find children’s brands like Tutu Du Monde, Deux Par Deux and Mayoral. Elegant Child shoppers can buy a gift, have it monogrammed, wrapped and shipped all from the store in time for a baby’s birthdate.
