Ani's Shabby Shak


Ani's Shabby Shak is located in downtown Ocala. It appears to be an interesting place, and actually, the clothes don't seem all that shabby. Probably cheaper than Saks 5th Avenue, too.

Someone else trying to make their mark and hopefully share in some of the business. I wish them all the luck in the world. It takes guts (and a little luck).

Nice photo op, lots of color and a nice window. I'll do the Jacob this time: what is 'Off The Wall Murals, D + M'?

Gunn White said...

Nice shot of the shop, and I guess I could have spent some time and perhaps money there..... ;-)

Marie said...

Good luck to Ani. If I were in Ocala, I would buy the blue dress on the right-hand side :-)

Per Stromsjo said...

And, you don't have to pay those ridiculous prices for snob appeal.

We have a place like this called Repeat Street. I am always amazed at how they take such a wide variety of clothing from different sources and make such nice displays. This one looks really nice too. Must be some creative folks working there!

Good luck to them. The dresses are cute and very colorful. Love the art work. MB

Colorful and youthful .. odd for an area populated by retirees

Bob Poris said...

OH yeah…what is her label worth next to Saks Fifth Avenue?

Lois said...

What a cute little shop and I love the name!

jusdealem said...

LOVE the blue dress on the end! Looks like a cool place!

Jacob said...

@ Vogon Poet - Sorry, we didn't go inside. I have no clue re: the murals. If we're downtown soon, I'll go in and check!

Tricia said...

Now that's some fancy decorating!

Dan J. said...

It's a great window mural....and the truth is I am having a hard time distinguishing which is the mural and which is the cool border effect. They marry together very well. Looks like a store you would see in uptown here in Minneapolis. Very Nice.

I'll bet the prices aren't shabby, though as you say, maybe cheaper than Saks.

@ Richard - Thanks very much for the link...this gentleman is an incredible photographer and I've added him to my list of photographers on this site.

Much appreciated. I also really love your new header!

MJ said...

Shabby CHIC! Love it! Reminds me of my 9/10 post. :-)

Jacob said...

@ Dan - That's exactly why I did the border that way! I guess it worked! Thanks!

running a small business is a tough gig, To compete with the big stores is a hurdle. Hope she has a decent location and taken a few small business classes otherwise the fun disappears with the money,

Becky said...

I love the colours and the dresses are super cute! I'd love to browse in this little "Shak!"

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

These fashions are great. If I were younger...

The photo is most atractive, too!

Chic and a rather nice window display. Like the reflection.

My cousin was the owner of that store , until she moved away from ocala. That store isn't there anymore. She still has some of the stuff from her store.
