What does Phoebe Cates do now?
Cates owns and operates a clothing boutique in Manhattan called Blue Tree, which she opened in 2005.
The store, which is located on Madison Avenue, sells a wide range of one-of-a-kind items such as jewelry, clothing, antiques, candles, books, and vintage LPs.
In 2006, she told USA Today, “I’ve always wanted to own a general store.” “I wish I could have had a photo booth and sold candy.”
Cates credits her husband with coming up with the shop’s unique name. “It’s a gentle nod to the blue trees in Fauvist paintings,” she explained to USA Today. “It’s the idea that this isn’t something you’d expect to find in this neighborhood.”
