New boutique in Athens, TX

It's been a fun, exciting~yet tiring few weeks and there seems to be little time to relax. But, that's what it's all about when you are trying to achieve your dream. The last 3 years looking for employment has finally showed me that it's time to throw in the towel, wasting gas and time on something that just isn't going to happen. However, this time was spent making stuff on the peanuts that I managed to gather along the way.

The space I maintained in Mesquite is no longer available and the items are now at the new boutique. Everything was great until everybody decided to carry the same items, gas increased, it was way too hot and the drive was just too much for me to handle.

So, while preparing for school I stumbled upon an opportunity that I just couldn't resist. I feel like I've just gambled my life away~but I think it will be okay....just one day at a time. Anything is better than NO income and surviving on child support for the next 8 years and it decreasing as each turns 18.

I officially opened last Friday (Sept 23) and have already met some wonderful people. I am still waiting on the signs...and people are having a hard time finding the shop.  It is located just before Super 8 on Hwy 175 and directly across the street from the TVEC facility. The building is a small beige building and in between The Escape and the Uncommon Salon..



The shop has debuted with my fabulous candles, melts, girly gifts, jewelry for all aged girls and women, hand-made cards and gift tags. We also specialize in hats and scarves for the upcoming winter season...colorful array of styles and designs. There are many treasures to be found in this store and have so many plans for fun stuff in the future and for the holidays.

If you are in the Athens area, please feel free to stop by and see what we have...

New boutique

I've been searching high and low for a place closer to home to sell my items. The 1+year wait for the area of Canton has just about exhausted me to death. Perhaps they don't want my items there~anyway, I give up on returning to Canton as a vendor.

My Mesquite booth has been too difficult to maintain because of the distance. All year I have been designing stuff and stock piling waiting for an affordable place in Athens. And it's really scary, since so many places have closed around here in the last month. But, I am ready and have found a new location that is affordable for me to start over with and see what happens...stay tuned for more details.
