This week, we chat with Claudia Treat, owner of Junk in the Trunk @ Cherry Red Market in Adair, Oklahoma. Claudia describes her store as "a bright/ fun Pinterest-y boutique where rusty, chipping and glam come together!" Read on to learn more about Junk in the Trunk and how her customers have responded to the mermaid pillows.
How did your store get started?
Claudia: Our little shop blossomed from a love of things vintage. We love rusty, chippy, re-purposed and chalk painted furnishing and Decor with an eclectic mix of unique Gift and Glam boutique finds.
What makes your store unique today?
Claudia: We are nestled among a row of flea-markets in our little community however we are NOT a flea-market- we are CHERRY RED MARKET - a bright fun Pinterest-y boutique where rusty, chipping and glam come together!
Why did you choose to carry mermaid pillows for your store?
Claudia: The first time I saw The Mermaid Pillow Co demo I fell in love with them I ordered them right away--I just couldn't wait to get my hands on one! I figured if I was if I was that mesmerized with them our discerning customers would be too!
How have customers reacted? Any surprising reactions or comments?
Claudia: Our customers cannot resist the urge to touch these awesome pillows, it brings out their creative side-they are like a blank canvas and you are the artist! I've heard them say it's calming, better than therapy and cheaper than owning a cat!
Anything else you can add?
Claudia: As I was putting together a new display with one of the pillows this morning one of our customers fell in love with it and just had to buy it for her daughter-they make a great gift!
