2018 Boutique Awards
2018 Boutique Awards
With the Boutique Awards we have a chance to showcase what we do and how far we’ve come. It also gives our customers a chance to vote for us as storefront Boutique of the year in Canada! This is an incredible opportunity for us and our customers.
This is by far, the biggest giveaway to date. We love to show our appreciation and couldn’t think of a better way. Our customers have been with us every step of the way. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We love our Miss Modern Girls!
When we first started Miss Modern it was a long time coming! We’ve always dreamt of owning a little Boutique in our home town. With even bigger dreams that we sometimes feel are almost too big, does that make sense! Sharing those dreams with people has proven difficult but our closest family knows how deep our passion goes. And its much bigger than 1 store. Having our own clothing line is at the top of that list and getting there has been an uphill battle but we see it starting to pay off, we see it coming to fruition. Each step we take gets us one step closer. Patience is something we’ve had to teach ourselves over time. Having our little’s has taught us plenty that’s for sure. Keeping each other in check, often reminding each other how far we’ve come and giving each other a pat on the back! Brittany and I push ourselves every single day. Like the saying goes “Hustle Hard!” YES! That is the first thing that comes to mind when we evaluate where we are. We have HUSTLED…no better way to explain it. We’ve cried, we’ve jumped for joy, we’ve spent time away from our families all in the pursuit of our dream.
Our first time owning a business, we’ve been learning along the way with our customers, thank you for your patience! The last 2 years in business has taught us the value of our customers. What keeps them coming back, what do they like, what they don’t like, who they are, what they do, where they’re from. All these things are what keeps us going. Getting to know so many new faces & names and see them coming back is such a huge reward. Hearing what they have to say, the good & the bad, pushes us to be better and do better.
Owning a Boutique comes with its own set of challenges. For those of you who have had the opportunity currently or in the past to a run your own business you know the level of risk, hard work, along with determination, blood, sweat & tears it takes day to day. It takes time along with an incredible amount of tenacity & plenty of faith. Not a day goes by where we aren’t working. Whether its answering emails and messages or planning our next orders, listening to podcasts about retail, listening to podcasts about being the best you can be, listening to podcasts about doing it all and balancing work and life…you get the picture! Reading books about retail, taking photos, tweaking the store, talking to vendors, attending our next trade show…..sigh!
At the end of the day, this is what we are meant to be doing. We know this is what we are meant to do, this is our passion!
