SAINTS is a new boutique located in the Village of East Davenport at 2109 E. 12th Street in Davenport, Iowa. It opened up in July of 2018. I recently had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Sarah Alexander, to talk to her about her vision and all the great ideas behind the new shop.
Sarah is a transplant to the Quad Cities Area. Originally from Austin, Texas, with several years spent in Chicago before settling here, she is also an avid traveler who is inspired by her years spent outside of the Quad Cities. She is bringing in a hand-picked collection of items that are described as “Fast Fashion”, meaning from catwalk to store front at an affordable price.
SAINTS does have a big-city shop feel to it, but presented in an approachable way. Sarah and her store are quite welcoming and sell beautiful things that appeal to many different types of women, for different types of occasions. She has an eclectic, contemporary mix of things sourced from Los Angeles and New York City–all reasonably priced.
There is a beautiful selection of denim and shirts, soft sweaters and scarves, jackets and boots for the cooler seasons. Inventory is always changing out dependent upon what Sarah finds or as the seasons change. There is also a nice selection of vegan, organic, handmade body products that promote clean beauty and are cruelty-free. All of the leather and fur are faux goods that are PETA approved; it is a thoughtful place with a thoughtful owner behind it.
SAINTS has recently launched a website where shoppers can browse from the comfort of their living room all the while keeping up on the latest trends in the store and sales. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with shop events, such as their monthly “Sip and Shop” days, where you can browse while enjoying a glass of champagne.
SAINTS is a wonderful new addition to the Quad Cities that appeals to a broad range of women. From women who love shopping in the big city, but don’t have the time to travel far; to women who want to keep up on the latest trends; to women looking for a gift or a special occasion outfit; Sarah Alexander can help you find it at SAINTS in the Village of East Davenport.
