Q: Please tell us a great story about your business, your experiences and the gritty back-story of your journey and why your business or products are your passion.
A:We are a mother and daughter team who's passions for freedom and fashion collided. What started as a business to be able to create what we love, developed into an opportunity to love those who needed to learn they too could create something beautiful in life. We put all we had into making products we would want to buy ourselves and began to grow. When it came time that we could no longer be the only makers we decided to follow our hearts and train and hire ladies who have overcome difficult situations. Every product represents freedom from adversity while helping to provide freedom to those still enslaved. A portion of our sales goes to liberate those in sex slavery. Each Beaudin accessory is a product with purpose.
Q: What has been your biggest success?
A:Landing a big account is always great, but for us it's when we were handed the key to our very own property! A small house in Woodstock, GA has been converted into a workshop of love. We make lovely things everyday, but beyond that we love on those who make those things. This is a safe haven of sorts where ladies can come, be themselves, grow into who they were always meant to be, all why making a paycheck. Thank you to all our customers who have made this possible!
Q: What has been your biggest struggle?
A:Our biggest struggle is when we are stretched in our faith to make the decision to give more hours to someone who needs it when the budget doesn't show it's possible. We rely on the One who called us into this business and He always comes through!
Q: What's your niche?
A: Those who want more than just a handbag. We provide timeless, quality, yet fashionable bags for ladies who want to feel good about what they carry. Each bag represents freedom. But hey! Who says you can't look good providing freedom.
Q: Where do you see the retail industry in ten years?
A: I see big box stores, and indoor malls fading away as the specialty mom and pop shops begin to shine again. Getting back to the roots of USA with good customer service and items made by craftsmen/women.
