Our Story

Milea Hayes opened Bohemia in 2013 from her passion for all-things vintage, clothing, and art. Adding clothing and art to the mix of vintage items made the perfect combo for a unique boutique. Since then, Milea has curated a shop that has become a landmark in downtown Urbana, Illinois.

In 2019, she decided it was time to expand, and increase the focus on Bohemia Home. She knocked a door into the wall and renovated the south end of the building. The beautiful windows provide perfect lighting for the “Little Plant Shoppe.” In addition to highlighting home goods, the expanded space is frequently used for events to promote local artists, and downtown events.

Bohemia has hosted pop-up events, trunk shows, open houses, holiday and birthday events, and book and poetry readings. There are pops of color and interesting merchandise in every direction of Bohemia. Said one delighted customer, “You know it’s a good shop when you keep searching because you don’t want to miss anything!”
