Today, I’m spotlighting Christy Brightbill of Boutique Bayou! Let’s start her well-deserved spotlight:
Tell us about your shop.
Boutique Bayou. We have been open for right over a year. I sell women’s fashion, Handmade and/or Special Order Jewelry, and hair care.
Where can we find your shop online?
What is your strength as a shopkeeper? I love designing jewelry and matching outfits to help a woman be comfortable.
What is your weakness as a shopkeeper? My weakness is pricing my services to make a profit.
A) What do you attribute most of your shop’s success to? B) What’s your top piece of advice to anyone who wants to open up a shop like yours?
My success is my openness to listen to my customers and what they want to design their best options. I would say don’t try to push your customers on what you think they need. Listen to them and try to guide them. Be honest, most importantly.
What’s your WHY?
I am fostering to adopt 2 little girls and am hoping to provide a better life for them. I love my business. It’s my happy place when I am making my jewelry or putting together outfits. So, if I can do something I love and be there for my kids, it’s my best life.
What’s your favorite guilty pleasure?
What did you want to be when you grew up?
A nurse. Which is what I am along with being a business owner.
