Divas grows from consignment shop to boutique

SANDWICH — What started as a simple women’s clothing and accessory consignment shop has grown into a showcase for talented local jewelry designers and other craftspeople.

Claudia Bullington opened Divas II, at 4742 E. 2750th Road (Sheridan Blacktop), about a year ago with a handful of consignors. Today she has more than 100. Along with women consigning clothing, she has gained hair accessories designed by Amanda Singleton; jewelry designed by Nina Ferreri, Marge Hubbard and Amber Woolsey; jewelry design and repair by Betty Armes; jewelry and hair accessories by Sarah Jeter; custom-knit hats and scarves by Donna Poulis; fashion scarves by Jackie Jeter; handspun fibers, felted soaps and alterations by Vicki Johnson; and hand-sewn purses and totes by LouAnn Russell.

“All are really talented local ladies,” Bullington said. She added that Ferreri has quite a large following, and Singleton works with about a dozen boutiques.
