Dress Your Little One in Unique Florida Attire From Flora Ottimer!

Jul 15, 2023

Have you always wondered about the wonderful local children’s boutique Flora Ottimer? Wonder no more as I tell you all about this cute local gem! 

About Flora Ottimer

Flora Ottimer is named after its creator, Flora, who opened the children’s boutique in 1945! Flora Ottimer brought so many wonderful styles and products to the South Florida locals and travelers and offered a place to shop for 40 years. In 1984, Flora sold her Flora Ottimer Children’s Boutique to a new local family. Mary Welker, one of the new owners, took over and continued to grow the shop’s reputation and build it as one of the local area’s most lovely children’s boutiques. 

In 2017 Mary moved the store from its original location on Las Olas to its location within the Galleria Mall. After years of building within the community, Mary retired and sold the Flora Ottimer Children’s Boutique in 2021 to its current owner, a local mother who plans on opening a new storefront and providing trusted classic, quality styles, and personal service Flora Ottimer has come to be known for since the boutique first began!
