The mother and daughter duo of Debbie and Jenni Lynn opened Jenni Lynn Boutique in 2007. In 2013, the store moved to a bigger location, nearly doubling the space. They consign and sell an enormous number of handbags, and at any time can have more than 100 bags on the floor, just ready to find a home. Popular designer brands include Coach, Dooley & Bourke, Salvatore Ferragamo, Michael Kors and more. Overall, the store inventory typically runs at more than 4,000 items. And each week, they post the new inventory to the store’s website. Debbie and Jenni have a long-standing offer that if you join their email list, you’ll immediately score $5 to spend at the boutique. Other customer benefits include a frequent buyers club that turns purchases into gift certificates, as well as birthday gifts delivered in your birthday month.
