There once was a time when shopping didn’t take place in mammoth-sized malls, when fashion needs were met by way of boutique shops and purchases were made face-to-face with friendly owners. When your looking not just to shop, but have a personable and meaningful experience while shopping, then the best boutiques in Connecticut are special places worth visiting. – Courtney Delong
