As a young girl, Meg Opperman came to Bluffton with her parents to attend movies at the Shannon Theatre, in the winter to view the Blaze of Lights and throughout the year for shopping.

On Saturday, the Lima resident became a Main Street business owner. She opened Wonderfully Made Boutique, housed in the front of the former Bluffton News storefront at 101 N. Main St.

The business offers women’s clothing, foot ware and accessories. And, with its soft opening on Saturday, the shop has had a steady stream of customers.
