So much planning went into my ‘Mom & Pop’ mini shop. So many customers said it had the same personal feel as when I owned Strawberry Threads with my two wonderful sisters Deborah Dee & Donna Webster from 1996 – 2006 when we sold it.. My heart had so missed the atmosphere of the fashion business since and now that void has been filled.
My God Mother Mary Hogg opened Strawberry Threads in 1971 and I worked there as a young girl. So, I was affiliated with retail from 1971 – 2006.
I modelled clothing, designed clothing, styled thousands of customers, merchandised the store and did the buying while loving every aspect.
It has been heartwarming to see so many friends and customers from the past. It is also wonderful to meet new customers and as I move forward I hope to establish the same relationship with my new customers by honest opinions and intimate services.
There are so many people to thank that helped me quickly put my dream shop together once I decided that I would take the leap! From the bottom of my heart I thank you all!
