Chasing Your Dream No Matter What...

When Atiya Smith first announced her plan to open a women’s fashion boutique in Chestnut Hill, her mother, Claudia Averette, would not hear of it. “I fought her tooth and nail,” said Averette.

But Smith did what many daughters do and pushed forward anyway. Without conferring with her mother, she asked a realtor friend to scout a location for a shop in Chestnut Hill. When the realtor found an ideal location, a storefront directly across the street from CinCin, she crunched the numbers, and her mother capitulated. So did her father.

Now, mother and daughter, both of whom live in West Oak Lane, are proud owners of Between Friends, a boutique specializing in affordable silk and knit fashions that cross generational lines – and quite literally stop traffic.
