Cloth-n-Mortar and Mescolata clothing boutiques open in Fairport NY

The buds are blooming in the village of Fairport and with the change of season, several boutiques are preparing to open. Here you can read more about the opening of two new stores in the village in May.

Cloth-n-Mortar clothing and home decor boutique in Fairport NY

The Cloth-n-Mortar boutique, located in Fairport Village Landing, just south of the Erie Canal, opens Wednesday, May 1.

Located right next to the UPS store in the canalside shopping plaza, Cloth-n-Mortar launched in October 2021 as a pop-up business at various locations in Fairport, including the Cannery complex.

The 1,100-square-foot store sells women’s clothing, accessories and home decor. Think of it as a smaller, more affordable version of Anthropologie, a women’s clothing brand.

Owner Jennifer O’Donnell, who also owns and operates promotional products distributor Brand Specialties, founded the company to bring more shopping options to Fairport, where she lives with her husband and three teenage children.

O’Donnell described her clients’ style as “edgy and looking for truly unique and often one-of-a-kind items, while others are classics.” But the women, she said, “want a boutique experience,” something you simply can’t get at a big box or department store.

From Wednesday (May 1), the store will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Mecolata clothing and home goods boutique in Fairport NY

Mescolata is located just north of the Lift Bridge in Fairport and opens on Wednesday, May 8. The boutique sells clothing, accessories, jewelry, homewares and a wide range of gifts.

Store owner Gina Chupak also has a booth at The LW Emporium in Ontario, Wayne County, which she said opened in January and plans to continue operations. The 1,300-square-foot boutique at 13 N. Main St. in Fairport has been a years-long journey, said Chupak, who has always loved fashion “and had an eye for different, unique pieces that work well together. After working for ESL Federal Credit Union for 17 years, Chupack said she left to pursue her dream.

Chupak, a Wayne County resident, said her store will have “a flair for dresses” — both casual and dressy — and that the clothes for sale will be versatile, but professional and unique. Clothing will range from small to plus size, she said. The store will also offer personal styling services.

The store will be open on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm. on Saturday from 10am to 5pm and on Sunday from 12pm to 3pm.
