Sparreaux Boutique is taking flight: The Chippewa Valley’s new unique boutique hosted its grand opening Sept. 27-28 and is officially open for business. Molly Filipczak, owner of the boutique and co-owner of C&M Homebuilders, brings Eau Claire a mix of modern and vintage decor with her new shop. “We wanted Sparreaux to be a fun and eclectic little curiosity shop,” Molly said. Though there are many boutiques in the area, Sparreaux strives to offer items that aren’t found anywhere else in the Chippewa Valley. From vintage mirrors, clocks, wall hangings, and natural botanicals to vintage and mid-century glam décor, all of the items sold in the boutique are hand-picked by Molly. “It’s been a dream of mine to be able to open my own store to share some of my favorite design elements with not only my clients, but with everyone from all over the Chippewa Valley,” Filipczak said. The boutique will be open by occasion, including multiple weekends this fall leading into the holidays, and by appointment. Products, which include handmade artisan items, will change seasonally, so the store will always offer something new and exciting. Molly and her husband, Cody, run C&M Homebuilders and work side by side with Chippewa Valley residents to design, develop, and build their dream homes. Not only do Molly and Cody Filipczak build quality houses, they also invest in the community where they build. They are actively involved in organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club and the Feed My People Food Bank. Their vision is to create a safe space where families can grow and thrive. C&M Homebuilders is dedicated to cultivate community and build beautiful homes. Sparreaux Boutique, the icing on top of the cake, provides a way to furnish them. Sparreaux Boutique (6176 Sandstone Road, Eau Claire) will be open 10am-7pm on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 17-18.
