Tea With Tonia

Tonia settled into her chair, fixing a cup of tea, an armful of bangles jingling with each movement. In honor of our birthday, we invited Tonia, a lifelong customer and friend of Bliss, to tea with the hopes of learning and sharing her perspective on style. With the sun beaming in through the tea room, we got to hear her story from the very beginning.


This year we celebrate our fourteenth year of Bliss Boutiques. Fourteen years of building relationships with our customers, offering the brands whose ethics, style, and quality we believe in, and enjoying the Portland and Portsmouth (and online!) communities. We believe there is just something special about the boutique shopping experience. In the spirit of another year of Bliss, we asked our employees which Bliss item they hold most dear, and we loved hearing what they had to say!

Handkit Love

We are pleased to announce Bliss Boutiques is now carrying The Third Piece, a Boston brand that has transformed and refined knitted accessories into stylish, sleek, and softpieces that complete fall and winter outfits. Co-founders Carina and Kristen believe no outfit is complete without something special, in this case, hand-knit accessories made with flawless craftsmanship and soft merino wool yarn.

We're Hiring in Portland, ME!

Bliss Boutiques welcomes Curatorto our store. The company was established in 2001 by Stacy Rodgers & Deirdre Nagayama - two sisters who design and produce their line right in San Fransisco. Their mission is to "produce quality garmets and minimize waste" - and they've done just that. Bliss picked up the line after seeing their asymmetrical zip-ups, chambray tunics & cowl neck knits. We couldn't be happier to have these pieces in-store and we think you'll agree!
