Sisters of Nature Boutique
I cannot believe that I am lucky enough to call Kimberly of Sisters of Nature Boutique in Nashville, Tennessee one of my dearest friends. When she told me we needed to do shots of her boutique I basically jumped up and down because I was just excited to be able to hang out with her. Little did I know that these would become some of my favorite photos I've ever taken. I think it is because they tell the story of who Kim is so well, and how much love and attention she has put into her little Shasta trailer.
Kim completely gutted an old Shasta she found on craigslist after quitting her steady teaching job. She wanted to pursue her creative dreams and bring joy to others lives. She needed a more flexible schedule, and wanted to do something with her hands. Little did she know that after only 7 months of opening her shop, she'd be booming with business and featured in countless blogs and magazines. Her fun and adventurous spirit shines in everything she does, and I feel like this trailer is a culmination of all of that.
She features indie and handmade artists and designers who source their goods humanely and who produce their goods for fair wages to their employees. She is truly bringing the humanistic quality back to shopping by knowing her customers by name, donating 10% of her profits to help women in India learn a trade (and employing them to embroider bags for her!). Kimberly also has her own handbag line and is a TALENTED artist. If you are in Nashville you MUST follow along and find her boutique, always to be found at different parts of the city. Hopefully you will be able to give her pup, Brave a kiss and find some beautiful items for you and your home! Now sit down with a cup of tea and explore the inside of her trailer, along with some beautiful photos of Kimberly herself!
(Don't worry non- Nashville natives, Sisters of Nature Boutique will be opening up an online shop SO SOON!)
