Community is a boutique centered around the concept of sustainability without the sacrifice of style.

Opened in 2010 by Sanni Baumgärtner in Athens, Georgia, Community seeks to bring chic clothing to their clients while encouraging them to buy locally and sustainably. When entering the store, you’ll find an array of  redesigned vintage clothing and clothing handmade by local designers. They also offer women’s vintage clothing, shoes, and accessories.

In addition, there are a wide variety of artisan gifts made by talented crafts people around Athens. These locally made items include everything from handmade soaps and chocolates to handbags and paper goods. They also offer a selection of home decor such as decorative pillows, furniture, lighting, and local prints and paintings. The owner, Sanni, methodically picks timeless vintage clothing in order to make the shop a truly curated experience. They also offer alteration services, sewing classes, personal styling, and closet consultations.

The name Community also references another central goal of their boutique - to make the space one of comfort and creativity to everyone who enters the doors.

Community Service is their in-house brand of redesigned vintage clothing designed by owner Sanni Baumgärtner as a way to merge vintage fabrics and designs with current fashion. Sanni and her team work to update vintage clothing that, while not initially flattering, can still be reused to make beautiful, timeless clothing.
