Vicki Blazier, who was a former aromaspa owner in Keego Harbor and is a Reiki master teacher, has taken the plunge in a new endeavor, opening Willow and Fernn Boutique, 528 N. Old Woodward in Birmingham, in the former Level Multisport location. Open since March 16, Willow and Fernn features a variety of fashion items, gifts, home décor, a unique bath salt bar set up in vintage glass apothecary jars, and aromatherapy. With bleached wood floors and vintage iron and wood furniture, including a sales counter that is a 100-plus year old train depot center, the shop is a mix of a store and a place to hang out. The boutique invites visitors to pick up a gift for a friend, or themselves. Among the other creative items Blazier is featuring are lots of handmade jewelry, including the Magnolia Pearl line and earrings by local artist Siri, owner of OMA Jewelry.
