“Before we got our website up and running, customers were calling and asking if they could do a virtual shopping tour. It was amazing,” Billie Vrtiak, owner of the Imagine Artful Things boutique in the Upper Village said. “We’ve also received emails from numerous customers saying they’re thinking about us and how much they miss shopping at Imagine and are looking forward to being back in the store. It has been really inspiring.” In one month, Imagine went from no web presence to a “window shoppable” website that debuted on April 27. “To keep our personal customer contact, we chose not to sell on-line but rather showcase selected items,” Billie said. “The shopper can then create a cart and call or email the store directly with their selections. We are offering both curbside service and free local delivery.” Free shipping is available for orders over two hundred dollars.

Hop on the website to discover playful pieces such as giant hamburger and corn stools, food candles emulating Italian cuisine such as wheeled cheese and a plate of homemade spaghetti, or a Chinese checker table that could double as a place to set a cocktail. Curated scarves, patterned socks, and lightweight summer ensembles are up for grabs as well as a collection of twisted iron candleholders to perk up the dinner table. “I don’t think I can name any one item that is the most (popular), but the most exciting thing is that our wonderful community has been so supportive,” Billie said. “We are surrounded by terrific people for whom we are profoundly grateful.”
