Unique Boutique was recently featured in Jane magazine as one of the West's funkiest shops. The shop offers everything from resale items to consignment items. The inventory of clothes, costumes, lingerie, shoes and jewelry is staggering for such a small town. Whether you are looking for something for a party or for a funky Tahoe wedding, shop here first.

As you get lost in the maze of the Unique Boutique, keep an eye out for pairs of pink and jeweled cowboy boots, slinky silver lamé shorts, leopard-print jackets and pants, amazing hats and wigs, funky jewelry and other items of fantasy. The owner Viviane (who is also a local artist) also sells sexy and interesting lingerie. You can even buy belly dancer tops and skirts and masks for balls and Halloween.
Truckee locals tend to hang out in this shop for fun; it's a cool, wooden industrial building down by the river, and a great place to really mix it up. Don't be afraid of getting a little weird in this shop. You can also afford to try on and buy a complete crazy wardrobe with the affordable prices at the Unique Boutique.
