It was 1982, and I was six years old. Any chance I would get, I would set up a store with household items and use my Fisher-Price cash register and my parents as customers. (My dear parents played countless hours of store with me.)That year, I had asked Santa for one and only one Christmas gift. A real cash register! Guess, what? Santa granted my wish and from that moment on, my dream was to one day own my own store!
"I would set up a store with household items and use my Fisher-Price cash register and my parents as customers"
My kiddos were growing up and in school all day. One day, my husband looked at me and said, "If you want to follow your dreams and open a store...now is the time to do it!" Every emotion ran through my body...excitement, happiness, nervousness, scared silliness...but with his encouragement and support, Buckets Boutique became a reality in 2013.
Buckets truly is a family affair. Mike, my husband has made many of the in-store displays. My kiddos have helped to unpack, tag and take social media pictures. My immediate family and my in-laws can often be seen in-store or behind the scenes lending a helping hand whenever needed.
