Two New Roslindale Businesses: Toni's Botanica and Indian Closet

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many struggles for small businesses, we are delighted to see two new businesses pop up in Roslindale Village in the past few weeks in August and September 2020.

Toni's Botanica at 715 South Street opened in late August. The Botanica offers palm and tarot card readings, chakra balancing, and more. Owner Toni Vlado is a first-time business owner and is a 6th generation psychic from Dedham, Massachusetts. Currently, she is offering a discount of $10 off to new clients for tarot card readings. If you are interested in learning more about Toni's practice or want to make an appointment, you can call her at 617-938-8945. 

Indian Closet at 65 Poplar Street opened just a few weeks ago in September 2020. Owner Dominique Simpson claims Chocktaw heritage and is passionate about Indigenous American culture in addition to clothing. Currently, he sells affordable and colorful women's clothing and accessories and one day wants to make his own clothes. Dominique also has a giant printer to create his own canvas prints. If you are walking by the shop, there is a huge sale on all summer items, including leggings and tunics. While he does not have a website yet, he hopes to be up on Facebook and Instagram soon.
