A bit more about how it all started:
“In 2013, I quit my full time job and bought a 24-foot aluminum box truck which I fittingly named Bertha. My 5-foot 2-inch stature needed two pillows to reach the gas and brake petals on Bertha. But, ask anyone around, I drove her like a champ.
The goal was to convert Bertha into a bohemian boutique-on-wheels. While the idea sounds like it came to me on a whim, many sleepless nights pouring over a business plan. And still, strategizing over fundraising, and maneuvering the intricate details of starting a business ensued.
The build out was a true labor of love with my family and friends donating their nights and weekends, time and skill. This was to make true this far-fetched idea I had of a traveling store a la gypsy caravan.
I will never be able to thank them enough. Nomad – The Wandering Fashion Boutique, took her maiden voyage from Brooklyn to the University of Delaware on April 10th 2013. ” ~ read more on the website.
In addition, see below a super cool video of Jessie’s adventure around the US!
In conclusion, we love the story, the idea, the products and the pursuit of a dream!
Unfortunately, in the Fall of 2015, the project came to an end. Here is a Note from the Founder.
