What led you to the idea for GypsyPalooza Too?
When I first started, I was making jewelry, and I thought the space I rented in Salem would be my studio. Then I decided I really wanted a store. I love clothes and jewelry, and I love being around women who come in looking for something to make them feel pretty. [Opening a store] wasn’t my original intention, but it completely organically happened and I followed it.
What do you hope that your customers take away from their experience with you?
We do way more than sell dresses. We give women confidence and help them try on things outside of their comfort zone. I had a lady whose husband sent her with his credit card because he loved the way she looked when she went home. We are so hard on ourselves, and we need to be nice to ourselves and kind.
Who are your biggest inspirations?
Iris Apfel (fair to say, she is also one of our biggest inspirations) and Magnolia Pearl
Do you have a favorite quote that guides you in your role as a business owner?
“Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.” Minor Myers
What is your favorite up incoming style?
I love layering up lacy summer pieces, or dressing them up with clothes for colder weather! For example, adding a cozy sweater and a funky pair of boots. I love vintage hats too!
