“I was doing photography and I would buy different items and set up shots here and there at home, but it was my husband that suggested I think about getting a truck and open up my own traveling boutique,” she said.
Starting a business is easier said than done, but Boston was determined and refused to let the dream die. After being turned down by the bank for a loan and having very little money to purchase a vehicle for the project, the Bostons decided to sell their personal items in the home.
“We found a truck and the man agreed to let us have it at a discounted price,” she said. “The very next day we went online and had just about everything we owned for sale.”
The Bostons sold just about everything such as furniture, electronics, and even Karla’s photography equipment. The only room that remained untouched was their daughter’s room. All other rooms looked as if the family was just moving in.
“Quitting or giving up was never an option for us,” she said. “If one plan didn’t work out then we just put our heads together to look to another route to take.”
Even Boston’s daughter participates in the business.
“One day I turned around and saw she set up her own little section in the truck. She brings customers to it when they enter and it’s good to see she’s trying to follow in her mother’s footsteps,” said Boston.
Boston’s inventory ranges from name brand to vintage pieces, all ranging from sizes 0 to 3X. Typically there is one of each piece of clothing, so the chances of someone else having another item identical to the one chosen is slim and none.
“Our clothes not only give you that flare that you’re looking for, but they also help set you apart from the rest,” she said.
