Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
Trixie Boutique is an upscale women’s consignment boutique. We carry new clothes—“salesman’s samples”—from lines such as Darling USA, Nic + Zoë, Not Your Daughters’ Jeans, MOON, and Neesha, as well as designer clothes from high-end boutiques in San Francisco. We want our customers to feel as though they get Fifth Avenue treatment at an affordable price. I’m a shopaholic and enjoy building relationships with my customers—therefore, I found my dream!
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
We donate our merchandise to the charity WEAVE—helping others is the best gift!
Why is your staff the best in the business?
Because the staff is my family!
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
The beach—it cures everything.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Being my own boss.
Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?
We take our two dogs, Maggie and Jesse, up to Downieville to camp and mountain bike. (OK, only Dwayne does the mountain biking!)
What’s your favorite childhood memory?
Summers spent at the Jersey Shore.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
Grace Kelly. Who wouldn’t love to go from being born in Philadelphia, PA, spending summers at the Jersey Shore, to becoming a famous actress and being Princess Grace of Monaco? And still stay a meek and classy woman!
What’s your favorite local event that you go to?
The 9/11 5K “Run to Remember” event held at the Capitol. I run in memory of the two people I lost over the past year, as well as the people who lost their lives on 9/11.
And finally, customer service is…?
Do you know that our editorial is not paid for, nor can it be purchased? In fact, our Introducing and Dine reviews are not paid advertisements. If you’d like your business profiled, please email Megan Wiskus at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we determine when your business will be featured, we will contact you to schedule a time to come out and take a photograph. Thank you!
