LEWISBURG W.Va. (WVDN) – Tucked away and off the beaten path, you will find delightful shops and boutiques in Lewisburg, all just waiting to be enjoyed. One such treasure is MerryWeather’s Boutique. The owner, Heather Fox, has been working hard to start up her business over the years and has an abundance of great things to offer the public.
Fox recently spoke about her business. She said, “I’ve always been a creative person with an interest in the arts, and growing up in Appalachia, exposed me to many traditional crafts. I have been a fine arts major and a Tamarack Artisan. I also had some success as a working quilt artist. Before the pandemic, I worked in retail sales of wearable art, then in late 2019, I decided to start my own business. Initially, MerryWeather’s would have been a traveling vendor for music festivals. But the pandemic forced a course change. Becoming a brick-and-mortar boutique in downtown Lewisburg, meant the business would need to evolve and expand its mission. I have tried to maintain a fun theme with lots of color, tie dye, and handmade goods. There is still a definite nod to the music festival and counterculture lifestyle, but we now offer a wider range of styles for a wider range of people and needs and carry an inclusive size range. You can definitely find special statement pieces here, but we also strive to offer really great items at affordable prices.”
Heather is not only the proprietor, she also creates lovely items, like Shibori Tye Dye. She also enjoys pottery, quilting, knitting, and painting. She also supports other local artists in her shop. Creators like Mick’s Media Jewelry by Mickayla Pence, Mountain Clay Company by Amelia Cole, Shea New Jewelry by Shea Newton, Fierce Sonia and Made by Meish by Michelle Clause. Pop over to MerryWeather’s for all your holiday shopping, where you can make smiles happen with ease.
