January 26, 2024 – In February, a new shopping destination and photography studio will open on West Columbus Avenue in downtown Bellefontaine. HoneyCore Boutique is a stylish boutique created with the mission of providing a diverse and curated collection of fashion-forward clothing that empowers individuals to express their unique style with confidence.

Co-owner Dallas Castle embarked on her entrepreneurial journey in 2018, combining her love for photography and passion for empowering women. Specializing in boudoir photography, she has grown her businesses to reach clients all over the state of Ohio and neighboring states. Dallas believes that boudoir is a powerful way for women to feel confident. Sharing a common vision of empowering women, self-love, and entrepreneurship, Dallas and her fellow HoneyCore co-owners, Ashton Vorhees and Elizabeth McGee, aim to keep women feeling confident by hand-selected clothing that enhance their self-esteem.

Beyond selling products, the business will offer events and experiences to foster connections among women, creating a safe space for building relationships and community.

“We love to be inclusive in everything we do,” said Castle. “We want to help women build their community and their village and be a part of their self-love journey. That is what HoneyCore and the services we offer here are all about.”

HoneyCore offers clothing and accessories ranging in all sizes from XS to 5XL. The trio also plans to host many events including craft and sips, book club meetups, educational courses, and more.

In addition to the boutique, the photography studios for Honey + Bourbon and Honey’s Boudoir will be located in the space. Honey + Bourbon Photography focuses on weddings, elopements, and couples, while Honey’s Boudoir centers around more intimate photography for women to embrace self love.

“The products and services offered at HoneyCore will only add to the tremendous offerings that make downtown Bellefontaine a destination for retail,” said Keyne Strickland, Small Nation Property and Leasing Manager. “Dallas, Ashton, and Elizabeth are three impressive women dedicated to their cause. We’re so excited to have them join the downtown community.”

HoneyCore Boutique is located on the second floor at 210 W. Columbus Ave. in Suite 4 and will celebrate their grand opening on Saturday, February 3, 2024, from 10 AM – 6 PM. The business can be accessed by entering between Tanger’s Furniture and Anytime Fitness. To learn more, follow them on Facebook at HoneyCore Boutique or visit their website at honeycoreboutique.com.
