Ever since I was a young girl I knew two things; I wanted to own a kick-ass boutique, and I wanted to help women. At 45 I am finally realizing this dream! It is equally terrifying and exciting. What they say is definitely true though – DO WHAT YOU LOVE. I have never put in as many hours as I have these past few months. Running on pure adrenaline, caffeine, and Love. Oh and wine. Lots of Wine!
The clothing, accessories, giftware, beauty and makeup products are fashionable, fun, unique and for ALL women. That’s right “big girls don’t cry” here. We got you covered ladies! I have also chosen to work with companies who are giving back to their local community or globally.
The name and logo represent both my dear friend ( who kicked cancer’s ass) and one of the strongest single mothers I have ever known – my grandmother Helen. Oh how Helen LOVED her leopard print! Unfortunately, she struggled for many years with cancer and eventually lost to this horrible disease. I’d like to think that she is hanging out with all the cool Angels she loved so much and is bragging about how awesome her granddaughter is!
Just in Case Boutique will be donating a portion of each sale to the Single Mom Survivors Fund. This is a fund I started a few years ago to hold a fundraiser for a dear friend. She is a single mother who lost her job and health insurance. Several days before starting a new job she was told she had Breast Cancer. Thankfully with the help of local businesses, family and friends we were able to raise money and give her a few moments to breathe. I knew at that point I needed to figure out a way to keep the fund alive and help more single mothers struggling financially due to an illness.
I invite you to come and shop in our store and help us to help others!
