There's a new biker boutique in town... Annie Up!
Shop classic, cool and vintage at Annie Up Boutique in Downtown Middletown. Specializing in biker apparel, vintage finds, top thrifted brands, and even bike parts— everything you'll find at Annie Up can be described as class biker cool. When you first step into the shop, you'll see a chalkboard wall behind the cash wrap with the quote, "Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes ... the ones who see things differently ...While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
Owner Annie Booth has always had a love and passion for all things vintage. For as long as she can remember she has loved working in the Buy/Sell/Trade market, discovering old treasures, dusting them off, giving them new life and a new home. So when the opportunity came for her to open her own consignment shop in her hometown, it was one that she couldn't pass up.

Annie grew up around motorcycles and still loves them to this day, but it wasn't her first thought when she began the journey to open up her own boutique. After finding the perfect location, she turned to her community to see what would be most valuable to open up in the heart of Middletown.
"Everyone kept telling me... we need a bike shop!" She says.
The area was lacking in this market after a previous biker shop in Fairfield had just closed once the owner retired. It became clear to Annie that this county needed a new biker boutique. Annie Up is now one of the few biker consignment shops in Southwest, Ohio. Since opening, Annie has already met customers who have come to visit from all over the state. Annie Up Boutique specializes in Biker apparel and gifts, but also carries a wide variety of antiques, vintage items, and new products too.
"I love the reaction on people's faces when they walk in," She says. "They always look at me and say, I love this place!"
Here's a sample of what you can discover in Annie' shop...
1. Top Motorcycle Brands
Majority of the boutique functions as a consignment shop, focusing on biker apparel and a classic style. Customers can bring in their items to sell for an 80/20 split. You'll find a number of top brands like Harley Davidson, Wilson's Leather, Unik International Inc., and many more. Annie Up has a large collection of new and vintage items for both men and women— leather jackets, vests, boots, denim, t-shirts, and accessories. Often, motorcycle brands' apparel can be very expensive, so Annie says you can't beat a lot of her prices.
2. New & Vintage Patches

Similar to the apparel, bike parts and gear is just as pricey. Annie keeps a selection of parts in her shop as well— anything from wheel hubs to tail lights and anything in between. Customers can sell their old parts, or stop in to see if Annie has what they need. "If it's not here now, I can make sure to find it," Annie says.
