What’s your favorite part about the community your business is in & why?
My favorite part about the community is.. this is where I grew up at. I love the people within the community, my business is in a great location.
Why is it important to you and your business that people #SpendLikeItMatters?
It matters a lot because small minority-owned businesses like mines need support! Inflation has spiked over the years and it takes a lot to keep a business going, but with the support of the community, we can keep our business running and growing.
As a business owner, what’s the strangest or craziest idea you’ve ever tried?
The craziest thing that I’ve tried and done was do all the renovations myself to the store, it was a lot but I did it! Lol I’m the DIY queen!

I started this business after the passing of my beloved partner.
