SOUTH TAMPA — Cynthia LeCornu has been handpicking merchandise for her boutique, The House of Threads, since 2009.

She has opened three locations in Georgia and had the chance to travel the world.

Now, the Tampa native has moved back to her hometown, bringing the boutique to Bay to Bay Boulevard.

"There's a saying on the front of my store," LeCornu said. "Life takes you to unexpected places, love brings you home."

The House of Threads carries men and women's brands including Free People, Free People shoes, FRYE, UGG. Bedstu, Lilla P, Veronica M, Prana, Hudson, Miss Me, Johhny Was, Wilt, Michael Stars, Beautiful Stories, Line & Dot and more.

"All of our stores have a hip city feel to them, but I think Tampa will probably allow us to bring even more unique lines because of the audience," LeCornu said.

A veteran in the retail industry, LeCornu provides shoppers with a one-stop shop of high-fashion brands. Jewelry, handbags, shoes and clothing fill the store.

"The House of Threads has premium lines under one roof, yet has a neighborhood feel to it," LeCornu said.

Though the shop showcases premium lines for ages 14 all the way to 70, prices do vary. Clothes run from $38 to $350, shoes retail from $99 to $450 and jewelry starts at $20.

LeCornu holds a grand opening on Jan. 27 at 3120 W Bay to Bay Blvd. To celebrate, customers will receive 20 percent off for that day only.
