Tell us about your store. What inspired you to create it?
I love products that make life more fun and exciting…that give you a sense of peace and pleasure. I wanted to have a store as a go-to place for thoughtful gifts and luxurious additions to a home.
Talk to us about your product curation. How do you decide which brands to offer?
I look for quality for the price; unique luxury products relevant to the times and my client base.
What is your favorite or “must-have” LAFCO product and why?
Feu du Bois, all sku’s. Because it is timeless.
What advice or ideas would you like to share with other independent businesses?
Be creative, be brave, be smart, be current, be in the store! Change up the merchandising regularly to keep things interesting for your customers.
