Nadine Buch, a knowledgeable jewelry and accessory buyer with 30 years of experience, began exploring various avenues to fulfill her passion for discovering the finest and most unique clothing and accessories. After experimenting with a few options and still not feeling satisfied, she asked herself, “After 30 years in the business, who would hire me? So I hired myself.” That’s when she created Tiger’s Eye, a store in historical downtown Lititz known for its beautiful clothing, wearable art and unique accessories.
Celebrating 19 years of successful business this September, Nadine and her husband, Gaylord Poling, reflect on what has made the store flourish. Nadine’s precise eye for unique but functional pieces of clothing, accessories and jewelry has drawn a large base of returning customers to her shop. For almost two decades, Nadine has searched for the most unique designers and their products. The overwhelming majority of Tiger’s Eye fashions are made in North America and Europe which is extremely important to both business owners.
The excellent customer service given by Nadine and her knowledgeable staff has also added to their success. Nadine has made a name for herself in the local community. Customers from Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Baltimore and beyond travel to Main Street Lititz to become inspired. She even puts customers on a list with the designers they love and calls them when new fashions arrive. “I like to give them first pick of what’s new.”
So what’s in store for the spring season? Nadine is very excited about the new rubber jewelry created by designer Annemieke from the Netherlands and the new fashion colors for spring—you will just have to visit and take a look. The display windows are beautiful, warm and inviting. Did you know they also do free alterations? So whether you want to pamper yourself or look for a beautiful gift for someone special, make sure you stop by Tiger’s Eye.
