Kinsey Jean Boutique - Bringing Memories to Life

Updated: Feb 24

It all started back when I was about seven years old. I was just a little girl. My grandma, (who has since passed) took me for a walk to a little boutique in her home town. In the boutique I remember these overwhelming feelings of excitement and happiness. It was filled with sparkling jewelry and lots of vibrant clothing. What more could a girl want? I found these pink sapphire crystal earrings with a matching necklace and I pointed them out to my grandmother. We walked home together, holding hands as I skipped over the lines dividing the sidewalk. I had forgotten all about that jewelry set by the next time I went to stay with my Grandma. It was Summertime and after dinner we always sat on the porch. I remember her surprising me with those earrings and the necklace, and how special she made me feel. The boutique gave us that memory, and I’ll hold it close forever. I want to be able to give grandmas, moms, daughters or granddaughters the opportunity to feel the way I did, a place to create memories. It all starts with my online shop and I’ll have to save up to buy a store one day. That is my dream. Jean was my grandmother’s middle name. She always believed in me. None of this would be possible if it weren't for her.

My husband and I have a little boy who’s 2 and my stepson who’s 5. We have suffered two miscarriages. The second one was far along enough to find out the sex and we lost a little girl. This was hard for me because I always wanted to share my experiences with my grandmother with my daughter someday. I am extremely grateful for my boys and I wouldn’t trade them for anything else. But sometimes as a woman I need to be around girly things. My house is all about boys and a man. I need to find my place to shine and feel feminine. We picked out the name Kinsey Jean if we ever had a little girl. Jean being my grandmother’s middle name. My store someday will be a place I would’ve taken my daughter if she was born. It would’ve been that shopping experience mother’s and daughter’s do. I can’t have anymore children due to being diagnosed with a vascular disease. So I decided to bring both my grandmother and daughter to life in this store. I hope they can shine down on this amazing journey I’m on and make everyone’s experience in the store just as memorable as mine as a child. Thank you everyone for taking the time to read this and for your support. It means the world to me.
