Butter Bean Boutique to open at the Waterfront

WICHITA — Michelle Campbell planned to open a new children's boutique in Topeka, but then her husband landed a job with Don Hattan Chevrolet.

Marshall Campbell is the new general sales manager for the dealership.

So Michelle Campbell now plans to open her Butter Bean Boutique in Wichita at the Waterfront at 13th and Webb.

It will be in not quite 1,500 square feet between Specs and Gentry Ltd.

"The Waterfront people in general have been super, super nice and helpful," Campbell says.

She likes that the location is close to her house and has so many restaurants.

Her shop, which she plans to open in late October or early November, will sell children's clothing up to tween sizes.

She'll also offer "just some little things for moms — any lady really," such as what she calls "funky chunky" necklaces.

Butter Bean also will sell "tons of toys," Campbell says.

"I'm hoping to get that Christmas traffic."
