What do you do when you don’t have the time or desire to go out and shop? Internet, right? How cool would it be if someone did the selecting, shopping, and shipping for you? You can have all that and more with The Pink Pearl Boutique in Boaz, Alabama.
Rachel Bynum is the owner of this creative venture. She began in December, as she decided to dive in and see where it would lead. What followed has been an explosion of customers who return to her repeatedly to see what new styles she has to offer. The new entrepreneur scans clothing and jewelry online, and then orders items in multiples of six or so, in various sizes.
A potential customer scans Bynum’s inventory by friending her on facebook, then selecting clothing, jewelry or shoes using pictures and descriptions as a guide. It is much like ordering online, only with a local connection. No shipping charges, no waiting for UPS. Her website, www.thepinkpearlboutique.com, is under construction and should be running within the next week.
Visit The Pink Pearl, by appointment only, to see her merchandise and try on items. You will see her best advertising hanging on her large rock fireplace or on her living room wall; or a great array of silver, turquoise, and braided leather set up on a display table in her great room.
Great prices and unique items keep customers coming back. Quick turnover and new merchandise arrives every few weeks, so likely you will have something no one else around will be wearing. The Pink Pearl is quickly becoming Marshall County’s place to shop for items with a fresh, youthful look that’s not too precious, not too girly. The owner takes pride in scouring the various clothing and jewelry websites and finding the best deals possible to keep the prices reasonable.
Bynum is happy to take her show on the road and take samples to your place of business. You can buy on the spot and take the item home or she will check online availability for you. How much easier could it be? If looking for a particular item online is overwhelming to you, she will gladly assist. It’s like having your own personal shopper, except better. Grab her now before she gets smart and begins charging a finder’s fee.
The store’s motto is “where we keep you in fashion.” No doubt, Bynum and The Pink Pearl will accomplish just that.
