Lioness out, True in

At 5 Spring St., Maria Lentini of the former Lioness boutique has moved out, making way for new business owner Mia K. True.

Lentini didn’t go far (she’s set up a space in the Shoe Depot selling a collection of handpicked women’s fashion pieces), but she sold all her merchandise to True, who is adding to the dynamic of the store with a 60/40 consignment business.

True, a part-time orthodontic technician in Albany who also runs her own cleaning service, said she’s jumping into the downtown business scene headfirst and is excited by the opportunity to appeal to all sorts of fashionistas — namely, those with some cash to burn and those without.

“I want to be able to reach all types of women,” True said. “I want to have a little bit for everyone.”

To that end, True Elegance Boutique, as the store is now called, features a mix of new, vintage and consigned women’s clothing and accessories — everything from secondhand casualwear to a vintage sequined gown to a $1,500 fur-trimmed Versace coat.
