April’s Find…Raining Rustic
For my introductory article, I wanted to share my shopping experience and unabashed praise of an exciting boutique in the heart of Deer Park, Texas, just minutes from my own hometown of LaPorte, Raining Rustic! Filled with eclectic treasures for your wardrobe and easy on wallet prices, Raining Rustic is a small family-owned endeavor with a personal feel you won’t get from the more big-name department stores. This lovely boutique offers unique jewelry, shoes, and everything in-between, serving as a potential one-stop-shop for every day wear.
Both times I have shopped here; I was greeted by a delightfully sweet, young lady named Regan. As a personal shopper I greatly appreciate a friendly, helpful atmosphere, so I am always a sucker for great customer service. Owned by Amanda Henson, a small town girl with big dreams (I can relate!), you can rest assured you will be addressed and treated as if you were already old friends from way-back-when.
Against the odds of success in the entrepreneurial world of small boutiques, Raining Rustic recently celebrated its 1 year anniversary this October. This is a testament to their excellent customer service and wonderful selections. I was fortunate to have the pleasure of attending. Without fail I was greeted with friendly smiles, cute Texas accents, and was quickly informed of all the specials being offered. Staying true to their family feel and small-town Southern hospitality, I even walked out with a fun, swag bag of goodies: a scarf, earrings, coupons, as well as a handwritten “Thank You” note… melting my heart. In an intimidating and often impersonal world of marketing, sales tactics, and bait-and-switch operations, Raining Rustic is certainly winning hearts and minds with its tenderness and affordable selections.Styling Shopping Peacemaking – April Ann Styles
