Lori Karbal is the long reigning queen of her trade. From the moment she opened her doors 27 years ago, her store has made a name for itself as an unmatched local treasure and a haven for the who’s who of suburban Detroiters.

What began as a cosmetic emporium, has transitioned over the years into Birmingham’s most fabulous hotspot for housewares, clothing, sleepwear, bath, body, skincare products, books, gifts and more.

But, Lori isn’t just your average local boutique owner; she’s everyone’s go-to.

The feeling of walking into Lori’s store, being greeted by her “Oh my god, you guys!”, and of browsing the finest retail selection in town, is simply an experience you cannot find elsewhere.

Her talent for style and knack for predicting the most popular trends surely could have had her working among the top stylists at Vogue, but instead Lori has remained a household name in the community for nearly three decades, never failing to offer her customers excellent retail, and everlasting friendship.
