What a wonderful, wild ride it’s been. And so, *so* fast. I can’t believe it!
When you ditch the creature comforts of a corporate job to strike out on your own, “five years from now” isn’t a rational thought. “Year” doesn’t even make sense -- you’re just trying to make it through the day!
Taking that leap ended up being the best decision of my life, and I’d like to thank you, our customers, for being there with us every step of the way.
I remember the early days when it just me and our dog, Pony, manning our tiny, 600-square-foot boutique on a sleepy strip off 4th Street. Now, two remodels later, we’ve nearly taken over the entire block, with a bright, spacious 1,900-square-foot store and an incredible team of fabulous, creative women.
People say the space looks as though it always been this way, which is such a compliment, because it’s definitely been a journey. The shop today is the result of a ton of planning, hard work and love, from many minds, hands and hearts.
I’m blessed to have an amazing team that treat Prism as their own. I started out with no employees, and we’ve gradually grown to where we are today, with nine employees and and an array of independent contractors.
Your energy and support have kept us going all the while. Connecting my customers with makers and artisans I adore made me so happy from the start -- and it still does, every day. The sense of community that surrounds our store is pure magic, and the friendships that have flourished as a result mean the world to me.
Thank you for helping me keep this dream alive, I can’t wait to see what the next five years will bring for Prism -- and, as always, to share it with you! Cheers!
