Isn't that a lovely thought? I grew up in a family where my parents were always making things beautiful. My dad is a skilled builder and carpenter, and my mom instilled in me a love for fashion, and she has an eye for design and home decor. We used to pour over Country Living and Victoria magazines together.
They're also both dreamers. And turned me into one as well.
And that dream has evolved and grown over the last 5 years, into a shop that I don't think I could have dreamed of. The boutique started out with my love for decorating, and then I decided to add a small selection of flowers. (Because who doesn't love fresh flowers in their house?) Oh, and why not add some cute dresses and some jewelry too? And as our flower business grew, I realized so had my love for flowers, and I started offering wedding florist services.
Two years ago, I was approached with the idea of purchasing the cutest little bridal boutique in our charming town. It took some serious consideration and prayer, but every day since the idea was planted, I couldn't shake the thought that this was the direction the shop should take. And now here we are. A unique business model indeed, but it seems to be working for us. And all because I really just love beautiful things.
Some of the sweetest compliments we get at the store are people telling us they just like "being" here. It's comforting, it's peaceful, it's beautiful. Nothing could warm my heart more. And I don't think it's just the surroundings, or the pretty merchandise we buy. I have the best shopgirls and the sweetest customers. We love to encourage each other, and we love to see the happiness that people get from finding the dress that makes them feel amazing, or the hilarious card they can't wait to send to a friend, or the bouquet of flowers they buy just because it makes them happy. I just wanted to curate a beautiful place and be surrounded by lovely things. And hopefully share those things with others.
