I am usually ecstatic about liquidation sales and the bargains they have to offer but Saffron closing, is a sad thing for all locals and out of town clients who love to shop this beautiful space.
Owner, Padmaja Manerikar Maryanski, announced that she would be closing the 11 year old boutique upon deciding to take on the full-time position at home as Mama, to her adorable toddler!
Saffron has been known as Bucktown’s urban sanctuary for women who want to step outside of the daily rush to be surrounded by Padmaja’s visual vignettes of color, texture, and lavish scents. Before a “Store Closing” sign graced the window, every corner of the store was filled with hand picked designer clothing, accessories, home goods, bath & beauty indulgences, books, and stationery.
Now, even though a good amount of the inventory has been sold, there is still a lot of great merchandise and a number of beautiful fixtures and furniture pieces for sale so I had to take some photos before leaving Saffron.
Here is a slideshow of the photos that I took. Pretty much everything you see is for sale (if they haven’t been purchased yet) and if a piece interests you, feel free to call the store at 773.486.7753 to inquire about whether or not it is still available before the store closes toward the end of next month:
