Hazard of an “intimate accessories” shop in the suburbs: Busy moms like to multitask. Since we were already in Eden Prairie for gymnastics class, I figured I could check out the brand new Touch Boutique at Town Square Shopping Center (just south of Eden Prairie Center)… 2 year old in tow. He ran straight for the condoms and asked “Is that a treat?” Well, kind of, yes, but not for you! Hershey kisses at the counter provided momentary distraction.
Moral of the story: leave the kids at home. While there’s nothing vulgar about the merchandise – no movies or hard-core gear – the battery operated accessories are not behind beaded curtain, either. But the hockey mom crowd is sure to love this tasteful boutique, which takes the awkwardness and inconvenience out of shopping for bedroom toys, games and books. High-end lingerie adds credibility and a touch of class.
