Vernacular Opening in Old Worthington in 2016
Vernacular, locally-based boutique co-owned by Chelsea Cabot and Kris Koniezcko, has just announced its third store, opening this April at 661 North High Street in Worthington. The new location will be located within the Zettler Worthington Hardware Building, a historical city landmark for over a century.
Cabot and Koniezcko have worked alongside the Zettler family to help update and fill this historic space with a refreshing and new mix of retailers, including neighbors like Grid Furnishings and Igloo Letterpress. Vernacular Worthington will continue to provide shoppers with its signature, ambient atmosphere in a new location which has what Cabot calls a “very walkable vibe”. Cabot believes the boutique is far enough away from its Grandview and German Village locations that a new, wider-range of customers will be reached that haven’t already.
Vernacular Worthington plans to open in April 2016, around the same time farmer’s market season begins. The Worthington Farmer’s Market is Ohio’s largest, bringing thousands of customers to the area each year.
Cabot says that the new shop will provide women’s apparel and unique apothecary gifts with quality and cost-efficiency in mind. The inventory has been curated to reflect an emphasis on casual, everyday wear for women that is both comfortable and stylish.
“My entire wardrobe consists of items sold in store,” Cabot says.
The apothecary and gift sections of the boutique will provide customers with an array of specialized personal goods like perfumes and candles, which are not mass-marketed products. The gifting section of the store will serve as creative place to find unique items for friends and family. All gifts can be hand-wrapped, in-store.
