a mix of old & new

Bonboni Home & Gift Co. features a delightful mix of OLD | NEW | CRAFTED | and SALVAGED home and gift items for all members of the family. Nestled in the historic Shaw neighborhood of St. Louis, MO, you will find something you can’t live without at each visit. Now open on Saturdays from 10 AM-3 PM.

“My dream for Bonboni is that it is an inviting, relaxing, and eclectic atmosphere that inspires you to live a sweet life.”

Having "retired" from the world of face-paced tech startups, Lauren instead sought to exercise her creativity by opening a home and gift boutique. When she and her family bought a home in Shaw last year, she was ecstatic that it came with a retail space on the side of the property that used to be a candy shop over 100 years ago. She and her family are slowly renovating it into their dream shop.
Lauren Thorp
Shopkeeper, Stylist, Curator, and Furniture Artist


Lauren carefully cleans, sands, repairs, primes, paints, and seals outdated and damaged furniture to turn it into a piece of art. She takes a limited number of custom commissions as her time allows. Please email her at hello@bonbonistl.com to request a free quote.

Handmade Products

Bonboni features a carefully curated selection of handmade home decor, jewelry, and accessories for women, men, and children. Stop in to see the rotating selection of products made by artists in the US and around the world.

Antique & Salvage

One of Lauren’s passions is discovering cast-off items: anything from architectural salvage, to sad looking furniture in an alley, to “useless junk” that friends and family give to her. She weaves each piece into her vision for the store and makes old things shine again.
