Once Upon A Time...
As a little girl, I turned my playroom into a make-believe store. I had a cash register, credit card imprinter (remember those?) and a Mickey Mouse phone, and I would "sell" my toys to members of my family.
I always dreamed of one day owning a real store of my own...
About 20 years ago, my mom, Harriet, and I moved to Boca Raton, Florida to be closer to my aging grandparents. We would get our nails done weekly at Boca Nails in Royal Palm Place and always pop into the gift shop next door. We loved browsing around, spending our Saturdays together, chatting, and shopping (whether we needed something or not!).
All in the Family
A few years ago, my mom was offered a part-time job there and learned the ins and outs of running the store. Her decades of sales experience came in handy - sales started booming and she got to meet many of you!
While pregnant with my first child, I was looking for a way to continue working while having the flexibility to stay home to raise my family. As luck would have it, the store's owner was retiring, so my husband & I bought the store and my childhood dream became a reality!
My mom is now the manager and I'm often in the store with Max, my adorable toddler (who we like to call the store's official "Max-cot"). In October 2020, we welcomed Max's baby sister Raina, our newest team member, to the Lifestyles family!
