Wood ‘N Lace Boutique
The Wood ‘N Lace Place was started by Chris Vickers and Susie Shakespeare in 1986 when their children were very young, and they wanted to expand their ability to sell the craft products they and their friends produced in their homes. They ran the business as a consignment business for many years and used the business to provide employment for their children as well as bring in a small income.
When Evan and Chris purchased Bulloch’s Drug in 1996, Chris bought out Susie’s interest and ran the business by herself. She transitioned away from a consignment craft business and moved to a retail gift and collectible type business. Chris began attending numerous gift shows throughout the country looking for merchandise that was attractive and affordable. When the economy hit a slump and the gift and collectible market slowed down, Chris made a calculated risk and turned her gift store into a boutique where she now sells women’s accessories, i.e. purses, scarves, jewelry, etc. This move allowed the business to survive and thrive during the downturn of the economy as well as continue to grow since then.
There are many repeat customers from all over the western United States that come to Cedar City to shop at our stores. Many patrons of the Utah Shakespeare Festival, Utah Summer Games, Neil Simon Festival and other venues make a shopping experience on Main Street in the three Vickers’ stores a must do stop.
Comforts of home
The building where Comforts of Home now resides used to be Mountain West Office Supply, owned by Kary Smith. When Staples moved into Cedar City, Kary sold his business to them and the space became available for lease. Chris and Evan Vickers decided it was time to expand their gift, collectible and boutique business. Chris, ever the entrepreneur, decided that she would like to open a home decor store where she could sell home furnishings, furniture, candles, Christmas, etc. They opened Comforts of Home in July 2006. This opportunity has given Chris and her designers more reason to travel the country attending various gift shows looking for special, unique items that their customers would enjoy.
The store is especially known for the many Christmas trees that they decorate each year with ornaments and decorations for sale to the public. While from the outside it looks like Bulloch’s Drug, The Wood ‘N Lace Place and Comforts of Home are three different stores, they are actually operated as one store. This makes it very convenient to operate the businesses as well as for customers to shop in them.
