A new store opened in downtown Nevada City this past weekend called Abstrakt. Roi Lynn Arnold and her daughter Lize Hottegindre have been working hard the past few months to put together a store of fresh and trendy clothing, plus the all the accessories (belts, purses, jewelry, scarves, etc.) to make an outfit complete. After spending quite some time in their shop, I couldn’t leave without one of the many cute things I found. The prices were very reasonable and the clothing is excellent quality. They also carry a wide variety of gifts and home goods. From the start, they aimed at providing only American-made clothing. They found it a little challenging to keep the prices affordable on merchandise made in the U.S. but still try their hardest. They also own another store, Contrast, which carries jewelry and other accessories from the U.S., France, Israel, and other countries. Contrast is located at 234 Commercial Street with the outlet store across the street. Abstrakt is located next door to Gray Goose at 228 Broad Street. For more information, click here. The pictures were taken by Lize Hottegindre and more are available on her site.
