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. I never gave up on this dream and in my mid-forties, I finally did it! Terrified, excited, running on pure adrenaline, caffeine, and Love, I started Just in Case Boutique.
What they say is definitely true - DO WHAT YOU LOVE. As a wife and step-mother of two amazing girls, life was already pretty hectic. Throwing this in the mix...well I'm sure you can imagine! I am lucky to have an amazing family and group of friends who helped me get everything together.
We are a boutique for ALL women! Our home bases are inside two amazing hair salons, Fringe Salon and Trilogy Salon and Spa, and it was important to have items that appeal and work for women of all ages, sizes, backgrounds, and budgets. Many of our pieces can be worn by someone in their teens AND someone in their prime years. As we become more familiarized with this whole website thing, we will have videos showing you the latest pieces and how to incorporate them into your wardrobe.
Just in Case Boutique will also 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.
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!
I invite you to come and shop in our store and online to help us to help others!
Thank you so much for your support!
