New to Rochester, first time business owner Keitha Kunkle opened the Lilly Pad Boutique November 2.
Just in time for the holidays, the boutique is located at 2317 E St Rd 14.
Keitha hopes Lilly Pad Boutique will provide the perfect 'Lake Manitou' Christmas gift.
Originally from from Greentown, Keitha worked at Kokomo Gas for 30 years before retiring. She officially moved to Rochester a year ago, but has visited the lake for the past 12 years.
The shop was something that just came to her. She hopes to attract others with her Lake Manitou products as much as Lake Manitou attracted her to Rochester.
Keitha says five months ago, she would have never believed what she was doing now.
Having products and souvenirs has been Keitha's focus and will be something she will continue to build more of at her boutique.
Keitha says the community support so far has been amazing. The Lilly Pad Boutique has a little something for everyone. From jewelery, Lake Girl Brands, jeans, leggings, winter wear and more. Lake Manitou hoodies also come in sizes for men that range from small to 3x.
Hours for Lilly Pad boutique are:
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10 am- 5pm
Wednesday, 10 am-6pm
Closed Sunday and Monday
