Since I was a girl, this store has been my dream. I doodled, planned and practiced. I attended fashion school while I worked in the field. Those years of preparation before opening ‘my perfect’ shop, I worked for multiple, locally-owned companies to learn the customer service and experience that only small businesses can offer. The most important lesson I learned from those business owners was that for customers to be willing to shop local, vs. online or “big-box, ” you MUST make it worth it for them. You must offer something different – AMAZING service. And that is exactly the focus of Ivory & Lace.
