About Secret Sisters Boutique


We are always asked where we got our name.  Are we really sisters?

No, we’re not sisters by birth.  But we’re two close friends who had nicknamed ourselves “The Secret Sisters” (telling secrets like sisters do).  We would often take road trips to do consignment and garage sale shopping when one of the sisters had the idea that we should open up our own quality resale shop and name it Secret Sisters.  From that idea and with a lot of hard work and effort began a consignment clothing shop in a small rented building in the middle of Ely in 2003.  As you can see, that business has grown into a trendy, chic fashionable boutique which carries not only quality resale clothing, but new clothing, jewelry, purses, accessories, gifts and more! 

We are proud to say that Secret Sisters Boutique is a women owned business, with owners Autumn and Marcia living in Ely, Minnesota.  We absolutely LOVE our little boutique and hope that you will too! We are community minded women who are active members of many local organizations.  Our boutique is a member of the Ely Chamber of Commerce and we enjoy supporting our local businesses and community.
