The South Florida Weekend team made a visit to Brooke & Arrow Boutique, Shoe Garden, and POSH Design Studio!
Delray Marketplace is one of the best places to shop, dine, and entertain in South Florida. We stopped by a few businesses to see what they had to offer their customers!
First up on our list was Brooke and Arrow Boutique…
“I always say to our employees, if someone walks in a stranger, make sure they leave a great friend, we want people to feel comfortable when they’re in here,” said Brooke Nix, the owner of Brooke and Arrow Boutique.
Nix said her goal is to keep her store unique…
“It’s a really cool mix of kind of a girl next door southern vibe meets Florida beachy,” she said. “So really, when you walk in here, you never know what you’re going to get.”
Brooke and Arrow has a little bit of something for everyone, no matter what’s on the agenda.
“You walk in and whether you’re shopping to go to the Keys for the weekend, to go to Disney World with your kids, or you’re going on a cruise or a country concert, we’ve got you covered. Even for a wedding, if you’re a guest at a wedding event,” said Nix.
From graphic tees to bold prints and funky bags – Nix said she offers items you likely won’t find at any other boutique in the area.
“Definitely stop by, if you haven’t checked us out yet, we promise we’ve got something cute for you and you can shop online also,” she said.

You’ll find shoes from all over the world at Shoe Garden — from Israel, Brazil, Spain, and Turkey…
There’s a shoe for every occasion, and comfort is key. The store offers a wide range of soft leather shoes with arch support, memory foam cushion padding, and more.
The owner of Shoe Garden told the South Florida Weekend team that he prides himself on offering exceptional customer service. He said his customers always come back after he helps them find the perfect fit, and he can help you find yours, too!

Just around the corner from Shoe Garden is POSH Design Studio.
In fact, you’ll find two locations for the art gallery. It opened in the summer of 2021 and has already had to expand to a larger space.
“It was a dream come true for me because ever since I was five years old, I wanted to open my own art gallery,” said Kimberly Perry, the owner of POSH Design Studio.
Perry’s father is a professional artist and inspired her to follow her passion. She is also an artist and mainly does abstract landscaped and glass mosaics.
The gallery has about forty artists represented right now, each offering a little bit of everything.
“This is the place to go if you’re looking for art for your home or business,” said Perry. “We have pop art, we have abstract art, we have photography, we have animals, we do portraits, contemporary, we do florals, anything you can think of.”
The gallery has several seasoned art sales consultants and an interior designer on staff. So even if you’re not sure what you’re looking for, Perry says there’s someone to help guide you along the way. And if you’re not in the market to buy anything…that’s okay, too!
“The comments we get when people walk in the doors, they go, ‘wow!’ That’s the first thing they always say because they’re not expecting it and it’s just a beautiful experience. It’s almost like going to a museum. You just walk around, don’t have to feel like you have to buy anything. We just enjoy people coming and enjoying the beauty and enjoying the positive energy. It’s just a great place to come hang out,” she said.
POSH Design Studio is hosting its grand opening celebration on Saturday, November 6th. You can follow them on Facebook for more details!
