a mix of old & new
Bonboni Mercantile Co. is a unique shop that features a delightful mix of vintage home goods, women’s clothing, and thoughtful gift items for women, men, and children. 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 Fridays and Saturdays from 10AM-3PM, and Sundays from 11AM-3PM.
“My dream for Bonboni is that it is an inviting, relaxing, and eclectic atmosphere that inspires you to live a sweet life.”
After launching and growing a technology startup focused on the handmade industry, Lauren has since “retired” from the face-paced world of tech. Lauren now exercises her creativity by operating Bonboni, a home and gift boutique. When she and her family bought a home in Shaw in 2016, 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. Lauren enjoys both the strategic and creative part of running a shop.
Antique, Salvage, and vintage
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.
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.
Lauren carefully cleans, sands, repairs, primes, paints, and seals outdated and damaged furniture to turn it into a piece of art.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 firstname.lastname@example.org to request a free quote.
