1133 S. Charles St., Federal Hill

Hours: 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. Thursday


You never know what you'll find in Federal Hill, a neighborhood where upscale shops, rowdy bars and down-at-the-heels small businesses coexist peacefully, often in the same block. Until recently, however, the neighborhood hasn't been the first place you'd think to go for sophisticated women's wear.

Not, that is, until Amy's Boutique opened.

Amy is Amy Mutch, who moved to Federal Hill three years ago from Ruxton. A former nurse-practitioner, she thought her new neighborhood needed "a wonderful store for women, selling designer clothes and accessories" so much, she decided to open it herself.

The boutique, mostly for professional women 30-something and older, features labels like Margaret O'Leary, Yansi Fugel, Judy Lee Cole and Castle Starr. There are fun sweaters and hand-painted scarves; and jewelry such as pearls from David Paul Bacharach.
