Walking into HipNotique you are greeted by a beautiful and fun Octopus mural. If this doesn’t set the tone for what you are about to walk into, I don’t know what would. HipNotique is a quaint shop, located in downtown Punta Gorda. Filled with many wonderful treasures as far as your eyes can see. The first thing I noticed walking in was the beautifully exposed brick wall. Coming from Philadelphia this brought up feelings of nostalgia for me. It’s just so warm and inviting. It’s not something you see too often here in Florida, or at least I haven’t.
Owner Debi Malinoski is a large proponent of reused, recyclable and repurposed items. One of the product lines she carries Mona B. takes old canvas tents and creates handbags, they also have hand towels. She also loves to feature local vendors. Lolablue is a local artisan of natural products from beauty to candles and little of everything. I LOVE their natural deodorant. HipNotique is the only retailer that carries their ENITRE line!
About 75% of the products carried in HipNotique are exclusively sold there. (locally, that is) There are so many wonderful products there. One of the most fascinating products I found were reversible shoes! Yes, you read that right! Two shoes in one! It’s a little difficult to explain you just have stop in and check them out! Dune Jewelry is another product line that caught my attention. It is simply beautiful, then throw is some locally sourced sand, you can’t go wrong. You can collect your own sand, bring it to HipNotique and they can help you get your sand put into a piece of jewelry! How cool is that?!?! She carries Lizzy James, Love Pop Cards, Ear Cans, and so much more! As Debi says there is a lid for every pot! Something for everyone!
I could honestly go on all day about HipNotique! It is one of my favorite shops to browse and buy from! They have so many different, unique and amazing items! You must just stop in and check it out! The staff is great, very knowledgeable about the products. They can help you find the perfect item. Debi the owner is amazing! The energy radiating from her is so bright! You honestly can’t help falling in love with her and HipNotique.
You can also find HipNotique at the Franklin shops in Ft. Myers, FL!
