Christina Ivanhoe and Hannah (ZACH ALSO PICTURED HERE STILL HAVENT MET)
Christina Ivanhoe owns Ivanhoe couture the best place to get tutus, bling bling on just about anything from the cutest shoes, tops, bows you name it she will make it and thats why my clients over the years have fallen in love with her. She has the kindest soul and has always supported me and Sugar Magnolia. She was in the store before I put out the news so I would say she was my first shopper. Thank you for enriching my life with not only you but Hannah as she has brought home every single Jelly cat stuffed animal I have ever carried in the store and has used every single marker for all her works of art done at Sugar Magnolia. I have also read her just about every children's book I have carried. We will continue to be friends and I am sure of it.
Next up is Shauna Kupetz the owner of Jam on 1st street in old town scottsdale.
The coolest place to get anything made locally. The first time I went into her historical shop it took my breath away. Seriously..This place should not need introductions as it should be the spot anyone goes to get unique presents for friends or yourself. She stumbled upon my store with Summer Ross (who is next on my list) when they were bringing Summer's kids to Safari kids next door. Oh what a fateful day to have them in. Shauna could be the most passionate person I know. She loves her store and all the talented people in the phoenix area. She has given everyone a place to sell their passion. She unites all of us motivated, strong, and independent leaders together and boy is it a powerful feeling to be among the upcoming brilliant minds in our market place. You are the most Jammin' person. Keep motivating and inspiring all of us.
If you were reading above you will know that Summer stumbled into my store and automatically became my biggest fan. She came in the first time only to come in less than 12 hours later the next morning to get something else. She has brought in her mother in law, best friends, mother, sister, and basically anyone she knows. I couldn't be more grateful and appreciative for it. But that is NOT why she is so special. In all the times she has come into my store she has not ever bought something for herself (except a pair of earrings and she even made that into a pre birthday present). She always thinks of everyone else before herself which makes her a wonderful mother, wife to her husband, and friend. I will miss you but know I will keep in touch with you. We have too much in common to not keep in touch. Thank you for being such a joy!
Taylor Moran, one of the best realtors in phoenix. GOOGLE IT! :) She once told me if someone was foreclosed on their home she refused to take commission on the house. That is a pure heart! She has been a client of mine for the last 9 months but felt like she has been around since we opened. If you have ever met her before you know I am telling the truth when I say that she could be anybody's best friend. You feel like you have known her your whole life within minutes of meeting her. She always has come in with her sunny sweet presence and made me feel like I was on the right track with my buying for each season. We normally averaged 1 or 2 hours of talking if she came in. She is expecting her third child in april and its been fun to watch her sweet baby bump grow. I know for sure we will have play dates and stay connected...Linnea will keep us up to date with each others lives and make sure it happens. Thank you for being so supportive!
Nancy used to be apart of Angel Mamas a charity organization in the scottsdale area. She has been one of our biggest fans since we have been open. She has sent flowers to many people over the years and has referred me to many. She is a true sweetheart and couldn't have felt more honored that you took such a liking for what we have done over the years. Thank you for being such a constant fan!
