U.BE.U. Fashion Boutique is getting ready to be part of Old Sacramento's annual Trick or Treat Event in Old Sacramento ~ October 29, 2011.
Every year the trick or treating begins at the Old Sacramento School House on L Street, and goes from 12pm to 4pm.
Be sure to come out and enjoy the festivities and visit the many merchants participating in this event.
It should be a great time, everyone is always in the spirit here in Old Sacramento!!
Out of all the boutiques in Sacramento, this very sweet intern by the name of Alexandria (Alex for short) chose to shadow me yesterday. As a sophmore student in a Charter School, she is able to use her Tuesdays and Thursdays to go out and experience life in the workplace of her choice and Fashion was on her list.
Although Design is her passion, retail operations/business is a big part of it as well. As I showed her how this "mom and pop" stand runs its course, she made me smile with her oohs and ahhhs of the merchandise. It was so much fun having someone there with me at the shop with the same passion as I do about the retail fashion industry.
I showed her how to open the shop, what the merchandise was about and the concept of what my vision is and told her how and why I got started in this crazy boutique business lol. She also had tons of questions for me which I was more than happy to answer and talk more about me lol.
I do hope she will be able to come around again, it's definitely a plus to have a person as passionate about what they do and have it be as similar to your own.
So with that said, Alex, I may be giving you a call ;-)
Being in Sacramento for about 4 years now, and owning a shop in Old Sacramento has definitely opened my connections up to some really talented, entrepreneurial individuals that are making their way in continuing their passion and "grind" a.k.a. hustle.
While doing my own hustle, I have had the pleasure of meeting so many different artists from craftwork to t-shirts and now represent some of their items in my shop.
Please see below a slideshow of some of the talented work that some of our local artists have created. They are available for sale at my shop, U.BE.U. Fashion Boutique, located at 1028 2nd Street, Suite C in Old Sacramento.
