Dragonfly Boutique, the shop specializing in mostly women's tops and Mexican-influenced jewerly and accessories on Fifth Avenue between Lincoln and St. Johns, will be closing by the end of the month, according to owner Umberto. "It just wasn't working out," he added.
The shop opened to little fanfare in April, and never really gained a foothold among the many other boutuques on this stretch of Fifth. Umberto sold a nice selection of women's clothes, but his selection of other items, including scarves and handcrafted Mexican-inspired jewelry and art, are surprisingly some of the finest you'll find in the neighborhood.
There's a sale going on right now, and just about everything except for the most expensive artwork is deeply discounted. Umberto is hoping to reopen in Cobble Hill, but will need to basically start from scratch. Why not do some early Christmas shopping at Dragonfly before it closes and help him out?
