Bon Bon Atelier isn’t so much an arts and crafts store as it is a boutique for those who simply covet style. A carefully selected assortment of photography, craft, and other books mingles with decorative paper, cards, and sewing notions.
Colorfully patterned fabrics beg to be transformed into a bag, skirt or apron, and if you’re in a guessing mood, pick up one of Bon Bon’s grab bags. A brown paper bag conceals a mix of fabric, yarn, and other remnants that add a whimsical finishing touch to your own project.
Sisters and co-owners Sheila Blodgett and Emily Blodgett-Panos have a knack for creating store displays that are simultaneously homey and stylish. Both are also crafters, and sell their handmade goods in-store.
