Clinton boutique offering comfortable clothes with a sense of community

CLINTON – Kara Ingalls is not only building her store and her Eleven 28 Boutique brand, she’s building community.

After her recent move from a small space in the Par Breakers building to the former Enterprise car rental storefront at 1044 Main St., Ingalls is looking towards the future while honoring the past.

She has both a successful brick-and-mortar store and sells online as well, with unique weekly live sales, providing camaraderie and humor along with women’s and occasionally girls’ fashion.

Considering herself a “wife and mother” first and foremost – Ingalls’s store is almost never open on Saturdays because she considers that a family day – her relatives are the most important part of her small business.

Her mother, Jen Kovac, works there regularly during hours Ingalls cannot.  Her children, Bentley, 9, and Brielle, 6, join live sales and show items as well as ring up customers in-person. Her husband, Vinnie, secured the new location, is the handyman and handles the IT.
