Our Story

Mildred Hoit has been a fixture in Palm Beach for decades, bringing elegant and exciting products to our clients' year after year. The vision was pioneered by our President, Mary C. Gushee, who began working at the shop in her twenties, and purchased the business shortly thereafter. Coupled with her exquisite taste, Mary is a dedicated listener, reacting to clients requests and curating her store with you in mind. It is not unusual to be greeted by name at Mildred Hoit.
The client experience is at the forefront of every visit to this jewel box. Specializing in sportswear, European leather goods, fine jewelry and gifts for any day of the week, Mildred Hoit is a true boutique full of color and dedicated to quality. At a time when retail is homogenous, Mildred Hoit sets itself apart by regularly introducing new products, meticulously selected by our buyers from American and European designers. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you back in the years to come!
Our store is conveniently located on Sunrise Avenue with ample parking. We look forward to serving you and welcoming you back to Palm Beach and Mildred Hoit.
