    Fresh Face: Sophie Stargazer Boutique

    Kristin Snyder is no stranger to the style-lovers of Lancaster. Some may know her as the starry-eyed girl from McCaskey, dreaming of one day owning her very own boutique. Others may know her as the style-savvy, socially conscious entrepreneur she has grown into. For those just meeting her, Kristin has been bringing ethically made, fashion-forward sophistication to local shoppers for four years. Now she is taking her talents to new heights with the opening of her new location in the Keppel Building at 323 North Queen Street.


    With a strong background in the fashion industry to inform her passion, Kristin offers a uniquely curated shopping experience for her customers. Kristin’s career of professional styling combined with her ability to learn and understand the style preferences and needs of each individual customer makes shopping at Sophie Stargazer feel like a truly personal experience. “I like breaking down the trends into things that look good on an individual, and bring out their personality. I’m in the store every day, so I get to know my customers and what they’re looking for as well as what makes them look and feel their best.” At Sophie Stargazer’s new location, you can expect to find an eclectic, inviting space and a warm, attentive welcome. Kristin is excited about the accessibility the new location presents for visitors and residents alike to discover all that Sophie Stargazer has to offer.


    This fall, she is looking forward to hosting several exciting events, including her annual “Meet The Maker” series featuring Lancaster local artists like Amber Kane, Hamilton Wax Co., Imagine Goods, Liz Riden, Lush Bazaar, Melanin Essentials, Revolution Lancaster, and more.


    The Sophie Stargazer experience provides customers with beautiful, locally and ethically made, eco-friendly fashion items and gifts. The store carries designer women’s apparel, meaningful jewelry, artisan leather handbags,
    gift items such as handmade soaps, soy candles, local artwork, greeting cards, and other treasures just waiting to be discovered!
