New Stockist: Audrey K Boutique
Posted on December 15 2018
Well it's hard to describe how excited we were to have the Audrey K Boutique in LA as one of our new stockists. We have such a wonderful customer base in California that we were doing cartwheels that our fans now had somewhere physical to try before they buy.
Audrey herself is a gorgeous human and it shows in her cute boutique in Burbank. Go visit her to order yourself something from the Sugar Rush Collection! We asked Audrey some questions to get to know her and her team better :)
Tell us about the Audrey K Boutique, where are you located and how did you start
Started in 2006, Audrey K Boutique was first established in Glendale, CA but soon after moved to Magnolia Park in Burbank, CA in 2011. There the boutique found a lasting home in a thriving, small business community. Audrey is known for her women's fashions: on trend, but never out of style. She curates from many local and oversea brands, but also designs herself.
Tell us about your team, we want to know you.
Our team is small but mighty! There's Audrey Dubiel, owner and CEO of Audrey K. Andrea Dandino, boutique manager, Susan Cade and Michelle Magpiong as our amazing shop gals. Audrey and Andrea are the main buyers for the boutique searching the planet for the cutest, the unique, and the one-of-kind goodies to bring to the shop. But many of our decisions are made as a team as I deeply value the opinions of my staff and allies. When we're not shopping we're dancing! Each one of us enjoys to dance together, with customers, and on our social media to get everyone involved. As professional as we are about making the business run smoothly and efficiently, we never lose our sense of humors and generally being goofballs. When people walk into our shop, we want them to be comfortable and to have a good time. We all treat the boutique like our second home.
What is the best thing about owning your own store?
There's many blessings about owing your own business. But from an entrepreneur's vein point, it's mostly about the direct contact with the customer and the reward in knowing that your're helping people. There's nothing small about small business, in fact, small business owners work harder and longer hours not because we have to, but for me it's because of the love and passion I have for my business, my staff and my customers.
What sort of things can we find at Audrey K?
Besides thriving to have the best customer service, the boutique loves its sense of humor and always houses a unique & eclectic collection of goodies from kitsch to snark and everything in between. There's never a time you don't hear a chuckle or "cute!" while shopping at Audrey K. We also carry a variety of women's fashions that all embrace a feminine, classic style but mixed with vintage inspired silhouettes or contemporary prints! There's something for every lady and a way to incorporate her own style with our independent brands including Audrey's own line.
