Meet Jacqueline

It all started when I was a teenager  facing the question, “what am I going to do as a career?”, and I had no  idea.  Then I came across a program at Georgian College for Fashion  Merchandising.  This was intriguing to me as it covered all the material  I needed to know in order to understand the fashion business and to  open my own store. Once I graduated I had a mission and I knew that one  day I would put all that education to good use.

As the years went by I  worked in many different fields of retail, mens wear, ladies wear,  camping & outdoor supplies, hospitality, and of course footwear.  Along the way I got married and had two beautiful daughters.  It was in  my late 40’s when my husband came to me and said “maybe we should change  things up a bit and you should open your store”.  Well that was music  to my ears and it was full steam ahead.

 I knew I wanted it to be in  Kemptville, and I knew what I wanted it to look like, as I had been  planning it for years. So many times during our travels I would visit  the small towns and see what kind of boutiques they had.  That is where  you could find the unique and different items as well as the friendly  atmosphere I loved. It was my vision to bring all of those experiences  together in one special place.

So here I finally am with my own cozy,  comfortable store full of exciting things and that feels like home. Now  I’m pleased to welcome old and new friends to explore my fine selection  of quality clothing and a few other interesting items to compliment  their wardrobes and enhance their lives.
