Roseville’s Multicultural Youth Group has converted what used to be its primary dance studio into a new boutique downtown on Vernon Street.

The Elite Celebrations boutique, located at 230 Vernon St. in Roseville, will serve as a fundraiser for the group, which travels often to teach children culture through dance.

The boutique is owned and operated by the cultural dance troupe’s owner Elvie van Kempen and her daughter Iva Calhoun and features new and used items either donated or listed on consignment. Items include wedding dresses, formal wear, furniture, greeting cards, and even sweets such as salt water taffy, Dutch House caramels, large whirly

pops, and novelty candies.

The Multicultural Youth Group has been serving the Roseville community for 18 years. The boutique will celebrate its grand opening from noon to 8 p.m. Friday.
