I am so happy you are here on this journey with us!!
Ever since I was a young girl playing store with my toy cash register and dad’s old credit cards, I have always dreamed of owning my own boutique! My first business venture was “Sarah’s Store” which consisted of homemade cards made with construction paper and my little pink embossing kit! I still remember the sign my dad printed out for me on our dot-matrix printer (hey, it was the early 80’s!).
Fast forward to over a decade ago, when I was blessed with my first baby Miss M….my little fashionista. Miss M has a rare disorder called 2q23.1 Microdeletion Syndrome. She is our “2qtie” or “too qutie” – hence the name for this boutique! Miss M is nonverbal and has a variety of special needs but we connect with each other through her love of clothes and my love of shopping for those clothes – ha!! She carries around Vogue and Elle magazine and points out styles and accessories that she loves, which really gives us a chuckle when that “something” is a metallic gold mini skirt!
Miss M is my reason for finally living my dream of starting this boutique! In 7 years, she will age out of school and I with a little luck and a lot of hard work, I hope she will be able to help me run *this* boutique. It would be amazing if we grew so much that I could employ other individuals with developmental disabilities too! That would truly be all kinds of wonderful.
Miss M and I spend a lot of time at therapy & doctor’s appointments and the like. I am always seeking comfortable, cute things to wear that won’t break the bank!
I promise to bring you exactly this – clothes that are comfy, on-trend and affordable, that will take you from school meetings to running to activities with kids, a quick dinner with the family, and everything in between.
She has quite an eye for colors, textures and the like, so we also carry a growing line of home decor items and ladies fashion accessories, too!
Now that you know WHY I’m here, I hope you love what I have picked out for all of you as much as I do!! Please don’t hesitate to drop me a line and let me know if you are searching for something in particular or just to say hi!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
