About "The Pod"
Welcome to The Paisley Pod! The Paisley Pod is not only an online boutique, but also the first mobile boutique in the Brandon/Sioux Falls, SD area. What’s a mobile boutique? Think food truck, but fashion – basically a boutique on wheels!
The Paisley Pod is a dream of 3 crazy, fun loving sisters that also have a passion for fashion! The thought of opening a boutique sounded perfect but we wanted to give ours just a little "twist" to make it different. So we decided to house our boutique in a truck, and thus The Paisley Pod was born!
Not only can you shop with us online, or find us at local events, vendor shows, fundraisers and festivals, but we also bring our store right to your driveway! That's right, for our local "Pod Fans" (those located within about a 30 mile radius of Brandon/Sioux Falls SD area), you can host your very own "Personal Pod Show" and we'll bring the store right to your driveway where you and your friends can shop 'til you drop! As a thank you for shopping with your friends, you, the hostess, will receive store credit to use towards your own purchase at your show! Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about hosting a show.
About the Owner
"The Pod" is now owned and run by myself, Chrystal, but Laura and Dani still definitely play a huge part! They help me shop and pick out many of the cute, trendy, affordable clothes that you see on the website and in the truck. They also help in many ways that you may not see, you know, the sister way - they give me ideas, support me, listen to my thoughts, and provide all of that sister love that you need when running a business or for life in general!
I am the oldest of the 3 sisters and have dreamed of owning and running my own business for FOREVER. I was the girl with the never ending lemonade stands in the summer, organizing carnivals in my backyard, and when I was in high school I even organized concerts on my family's acreage and charged admission. I love clothes, I love shopping, and I love helping people feel amazing so what better way to do that than with a boutique!
On a more personal note - I am a wife to a great guy, Adam, who is a teacher and coach at Brandon Valley High School. I'm also mom to 3 amazing little people that rule our roost, a girl and 2 boys. Rylan, Ryder, and Corbin are my heart and I love them so much. I am now blessed to be a mompreneur and stay home with them while also running my dream business. For fun we love to go camping, Friday night movies and beach towel picnics, and we will never turn down a good dance party! I absolutely love iced coffees and will drive a good distance just to get one, this may be called an addiction! I also like wine and wine tasting (mostly because I get to hang with my amazing girlfriends when doing so and this time is a rarity), Bunco nights (sounds old, but it is sooooo fun!), and I really love reality TV - HGTV, The Bachelor/Bachelorette, Kardashian's, Teen Mom 2, Real Housewives of the OC, you get the idea! I know these shows do nothing for me, but man, I love them! Other bad habits include, ice cream,Target, and shopping in general. I also love yoga, and a good morning workout, "self help" books, and of course spending time with my family.
Thank you so much for supporting The Paisley Pod, my dream, and most importantly my family. Pod Fans are the best fans!
Remember - Smile, you are beautiful!
Lots of Love,
