About Purple Lizard Boutique

Purple Lizard Boutique is a brick and mortar store that is located at the southeast corner of 15th Ave and Thomas Rd. in the Encanto Village Shopping Center in Phoenix, AZ.   My business is nestled in the Encanto-Palmcroft Historic Neighborhood and was born in 1998.   I started with a dream of a boutique where there would be something for everyone including clothing, unique handmade items, and found treasures that are not carried in chain stores.   I wanted to provide fun loving, easy care linen and cotton clothing from small artists locally and around the country.   Over time, I have expanded into carrying an eclectic mix of accessories, art and indoor/outdoor home décor.   That is when Purple Lizard Casa was born.   My husband Joe is the proprietor of Casa.   Joe and I work together to create adventure, discovery, and fun in this space.   The selections are continually changing and allow shoppers to search, find, and sometimes laugh in the discovery of found and sometimes hidden items.   Rustic and rusty barrel cactus, tall saguaro and prickly pear cacti are spread throughout the space as well as colorful Javalina for your yard.   I love to mix large clay pots, Talvera pottery, vintage tables and chairs….some metal some wood, as well as local artists’ paintings, sculptures, antique Santos, nichos, painted milagro hearts, and even lighting… vintage and "Old World" new.   And now Joe and I have expanded to provide the same shopping experience on-line to customers that cannot frequent the store but desire to see what’s new!   I wanted a store as welcoming and comfortable as home.   So, stop by the store or view the store on-line and see the selection of treasures for you, a gift for a friend, and now for your home. ENJOY THIS DAY....and Welcome to the Land of Purple Lizard Boutique and Purple Lizard Casa.
