Petunia, a children’s boutique store to be located at 46-21 Skillman Ave., is scheduled to open Wednesday, Sept. 15.

The store, owned by Woodside resident Jill Callan, will sell everything from hand-sewn dresses to gently-used clothes. Some of her inventory will be designed by local artists, with some coming from French, Spanish and Californian designers.

“Providing families with unique, compelling children’s clothing (and gifts) from independent designers is what we’re all about,” Callan said. “I am thrilled to begin this new career adventure right here in my own neighbourhood.”

Meanwhile, Victor Caputo, a 29-year-old attorney, has moved into a new office at 41-08A 48th Street. He has erected a new awning and turned the store frontage into a more appealing environment.

Caputo, a Long Island resident, said he wants to put down roots in the neighborhood and one day move to Sunnyside Gardens.

Caputo specializes in real estate law, from closings to landlord-tenant law. He works in both the residential and commercial arenas.
