Berries and Blooms Boutique
Address: Mt. Carmel, IL
Berries & Blooms Boutique is a sweet little jewelry and gift boutique located in the heart of Mt. Carmel. Opened in 2006 by Ann Schurman, they offer a wide variety of both seasonal and nonseasonal décor items, candles and tarts, and some of the most beautiful artisan jewelry around. Ann even makes some of the pieces herself!
When Ann Schurman first opened the shop, she sold mostly silk florals, home decor and candles. After a few years of success her cousin, Tanea Tombaugh Priddis, gave her a jewelry display case that had belonged to Tanea’s father, John Tombaugh. With the addition of that case her jewelry business quickly evolved. Ann makes a wide variety of unique costume jewelry designs, most of which are one of kind. Berries and Blooms also offer vintage reproduction rhinestone jewelry and jewelry designed by other makers as well.
The store specializes in gifts, home fragrances, handcrafted jewelry, and artisan wares. Ann strives to find unique handmade and American made merchandise. Crafters are from several states including Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Minnesota and Illinois (of course!)
“A big part of the merchandise Berries and Blooms offer are One of a Kind or Few of a Kind.”
