Have you always wanted to own your own boutique? What led you into this line of business?
"I grew up in an artist commune called Swallowtail Studios, so it was only natural that I would lead a creative life. I've always been obsessed with vintage clothing and decor, and my mom and I were constantly scoping out local flea markets. So, after a short stint in the advertising world, I knew it was time to do my own thing. BellJar brings together all of my talents, strengths, and obsessions into one magical place."
