Featuring colorful costume jewelry, fashionable fall accessories and unique gifts, Knock Knock Boutique is a charming addition to South Market Street.
Since its opening in November 2016, the boutique has offered products from a variety of vendors at affordable prices. Along with a large range of fashion jewelry, shoppers can find accessories such as handbags, ponchos, blanket-scarves, hats and gloves. Looking for a gift for a friend—or just a treat for yourself? Items such as felt birdhouses, homemade soaps, pillows and decorative signs are also available throughout the store.
Owner Emily Drobnock grew up in Hershey, PA. Though she originally took a job in education, she eventually decided to pursue another career path.
“My dad’s parents had a candy and gift shop in Hershey, so I grew up with the business,” she said. Drobnock opened the Elizabethtown location last year and welcomes shoppers from the College community. Etown students will receive 10 percent off when they show their College ID.
Sophomore Mady Harper connected with the business when she decided to walk around town last year with friends. When they entered Knock Knock Boutique, Harper explained that she was immediately impressed with the employee behind the counter.
“Everyone who works here is so bubbly and open,” she said. Now Harper works part-time at the store, and enjoys interacting with customers and promoting their products. She especially likes the inspirational jewelry and quote boxes, and encourages more Etown students to visit the store and the surrounding shops downtown.
“Etown has so much potential for nightlife,” Harper said. “More students should come to walk around, take your time exploring the new and emerging businesses.”
Knock Knock Boutique plays an active role in the community; the store participates in Small Business Saturday, Second Friday and Black Friday Sales. Next month, Drobnock also plans on throwing a birthday party to celebrate the store’s first year.
The store is open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays. To learn more about Knock Knock Boutique, visit shopknockknock.com, Facebook or Instagram.
