There’s something about the feeling of walking into a clothing boutique! I just love the one on one attention and warm friendly service you get. Sure I could easily go to Nordstrom’s, but it’s just not the same. Plus, I would much rather spend my money supporting small businesses. In a small town about 15 minutes from my house, the cutest boutique opened and I was so ecstatic!! Seriously, this was a dream come true!! This treasure nested in down town Hammonton is Sadee’s Boutique.
The owner, Leeann Garvey opened her shop a couple of years ago. She NEVER had her own business so this was quite a leap for her. She did however have a love of fashion which inspired her to go for it, and she did exactly that. I recently asked Leeann how she took the leap of faith to go into business and this is what she said, “I was a stay at home mom for 20 years. I always loved boutique shopping. My only experience with this business was shopping with my two beautiful daughters, which the store is named after. Sa for Samantha and Dee for Danielle, whom we call Dee..SaDee’s. I always wanted to own a clothing boutique. My girls were getting older and the timing was right. I like the warm charm you get from shopping in a boutique and I also like the one on one relationship between the owner and the customer. I picked Hammonton because I wanted to bring something different to this quaint little town, a unique and charming little boutique, offering upscale women’s clothing.”
Sadee’s carries a great assortment including Paige Denim, Kut From The Kloth, Splendid, Michael Stars, Bella Dahl and a plethora of jewelry including Heet and Alex and Ani. I ALWAYS walk out of Sadee’s with a smile on my face, as do many of my girlfriends. Leann and her assistant Tracy Earling were kind of enough to let me play dress up and try on a few different Fall looks, it was so much fun! These ladies know their fashion. It’s amazing how many different looks you can get from one outfit, simply by switching the accessories and shoes! And the denim Bella and Dahl shirt is amazing!!! I couldn’t leave without it…if you are looking for a denim shirt; trust me, this is the one!
So next time you go shopping, instead of heading to the mall look for a boutique in your area. And always remember you get what you pay for…..so sometimes spending a little extra will save you in the long run…….always choose QUALITY over QUANTITY.
