The original “A Renaissance Woman” was a long awaited dream of owner Maureen Tillett who with over the 35+ of retail experience always dreamt of having her own business, coming up to retirement age is was a now or never lets do it and she did, with help from friends and family the dream became a reality in May 2013 when Maureen opened her very first store and she has not looked back since.
The Concept of “A Renaissance Woman”
It’s an upscale consignment boutique which offers the finest in new and gently loved designer and quality brand name clothing, a year round cruise wear section along with formal and special occasion dressing, shoes, purses, fashion and fine jewellery, along with the accompanying accessories all for a fraction of their original retail price. You may never want to shop retail again.
The original “A Renaissance Woman” was located at 301 Ridge Road North in the Historic Village of Ridgeway Ontario; originally opened in May 2013 and after a wonderful four years of operation was closed permanently on June 30th 2017, it was a hard decision to do so after being so warmly welcomed into the community and meeting some lovely clients and building some great friendships along the way, however Burlington was calling Maureen back home so I made the big decision to re-locate back to my roots, and logistically it was hard to oversee the Ridgeway location from a distance.
Maureen now having re-located back to Burlington has embarked on her second boutique a much larger facility of 2040square foot with the selling space of approximately 1650 square foot.
We carry everything from casual to couture to suite even the most discerning of buyer, with sizes ranging from 0 to 4X.
So definitely something for everyone, as we do aim to please.
The boutique setting is intimate, relaxing, with a no pressure atmosphere a fun place to browse, shop, mingle, and check out all the latest arrivals which come in on a regular basis so drop by anytime you are always welcome to check us out and allow yourself some retail therapy.
A Renaissance Woman has a lovely sitting area to rest awhile if you so choose, so wedding parties, husbands and partners are more than welcome to enjoy the boutique atmosphere while they wait.
We also have an official greeter when on duty and when available, the in house mascot Yoshi a very friendly 11 year old Shih Tzu who loves people and all the attention he is given, he will at times lay right in your path just so you have to stop to so hello and in the hopes you give him a tummy rub.
