Shoes line the windows on the ground floor of a new condo building in Grandview, luring drivers stopped at the red light out front.

The styles range from knee-high boots to strappy heels, and all are displayed atop stacks of shoe boxes laying on the concrete floor.

O. Valeria owner Michael Young isn't all that into shoes, but he used to own a boutique of the same name with his then-fiancee. Now he's temporarily offering that store's remaining inventory - and there's a lot of it - in the vacant retail space of the condo building he owns at 1200 Grandview Ave.

Until a tenant either takes over O. Valeria or opens their own boutique in its place, shoppers can get "super reasonable" prices on men's and women's shoes and apparel, some of which is Italian-made, Young said.

Women's shoes make up the bulk of the stock. While there are some casual styles - including a gold-toned, athletic-looking shoe with embellishments - the majority are colorful statement-makers that could be worn with dresses or used to tie together a jeans-and-plain-top outfit. Animal prints abound.

Sprinkled among the shoes are clutches, purses and floppy-brimmed hats. There are also about four racks of clothes, and no two items on them are the same - embroidered tunics, drapey blouses, furs and more.

Pointy and square-toe leather dress shoes, many covered with stitched-on designs, line the small wall of men's items.

And above them hang original photographs, quilted wall hangings and digital works of art, all of which are for sale. To show off the local art, O. Valeria has become a part of the neighborhood's Grandview Hop lineup.

It's all available for - likely - a limited time only.
