Why shop here: The idea for CLT Boutique was born from the moment Britt Misenhimer needed to select something special for her mother, who just completed a heart transplant. Unable to find something unique, Misenheimer created a one-of-a-kind bangle for her. She now travels around Charlotte in a vintage camper mobile boutique, displaying everything from handmade jewelry to fashionable apparel.
