I caught up with Monica Bruns-Howard, one of the shop owners, to find out a little more about her favorite boutique items and what gifts will be big this holiday season.
The boutique is named after owners Monica Bruns-Howard and Tera Huddleston. The original concept for Monera started as home-based business. Tera began making jewelry as a way to keep her mind off her colon cancer diagnosis and treatment. Monica had partnered with her to grow a collection of handcrafted jewelry pieces. Once Tera received a bill of clean health, the two decided to launch a true store and offer a wide variety of chic items.

Q. What Monera items would we find in your personal collection?
|(I purchased two Bourbon and Bowetie bracelets and absolutely love them!)|
Q. What will be a top gift this holiday season?
Monica: A top gift for this holiday season are boot cuffs. All ages wear boots and the cuffs add great style to any outfit. We carry a couple brands: Coco & Carmen and Grace & Lace. The price ranges from $12.95 to $22.00, which is a great gift for anyone on your list.

My friend, Christy, modeled my favorite Monera top. I think emerald green is my new favorite color!
