I would pass by this one empty storefront on my way to work every day, saying, "that is MY store." because in my dreams, it was my store. After inquiring about the prices of rent in my area, I resigned myself to that fact that my dream would have to be put on hold...maybe forever, until I found a tiny shop, 144 sq. feet to be exact, in July of 2009. The price was right, so I took a leap of faith and signed a lease.
The next morning, I was almost in a panic thinking I made a mistake...how would I do this while working a full time job??? With the help of my family, my dream became a reality, and Enchanted Wishes was born! I have now moved to a bigger location, 400 sq. feet this time, still in Armonk, which now has a private room for hosting parties! Since re-opening on February 5th, I have held a "hands-on" craft session for Valentine's Day, and most recently, during the NY school break, offered "drop-in" jewelry making, which turned out to be a great success!
What will we find in your shop and on Etsy
This was my "a-ha" moment, when I thought they would make great party favors. Now I was on my quest to show them to the party planners across the U.S. for them to incorporate into their parties as favors. From that simple flower all the way to my creations today which include mystical mermaids, petite princesses, fantastical fairies and fairytale tutu poofs, just to name a few.
