Our tipster updates us on new boutique Mercado: "I sent in a tip a few weeks ago about a store opening in Silverlake called Mercado that a friend told me about. It's finally open. I just got hit on the email chain. The girls that own it have been shopping the world (literally) the past year. Both are stylists (Janet Jackson, Pink etc) the other one is a set designer as well. I haven't had a chance to stop in but apparently it's amazing." The boutique is at 3517 West Sunset Boulevard. [Racked Inbox]
