In the world of small business, the people you love on and the people who love on you are EVERYTHING! We keep each other going and lift each other up. In my opinion, being surrounded by strong, intelligent, hard working and creative people is one of the biggest motivators to keep chasing your dreams.

What is your favorite part of owning your own store?
So many things!! Our favorite part would definitely be designing the layout of our store, making product look unique, but mostly putting our spin on how we want our customers to visualize it being in their home.
How long have you been in business?
What do your customers love to shop with you for?
I think its because we provide an experience when they visit the shop. We want every customer that walks through our door to feel like a friend, and that's something you just don't get from shopping online. Also it's the atmosphere we create with the shop displays, you can really look and touch and really see the quality of our products before you make your purchase.
What Freckles products do your customers love the most?
Your Adorable Pregnant Lady Cards!! We offer baby registry so those have been a hit!
What is your favorite thing about working with Natalie and Freckles?
The proximity! We love working with our fellow Oklahoma girls! Also she's pretty much the sweetest :)
What do you enjoy doing when you're not being a store owner?
Being home! I know that sounds boring, but we pretty much work all the time, so time off at home is always at the top of my list. Also we both love to shop (obviously) but anytime we can get out and shop for ourselves and not the store is always a plus.
Coffee or cocktails? Both!
Favorite local restaurant? In OKC, definitely Cafe Kacao, in McAlester, The Choc Room
Favorite color? Morgan - Blue and Taryn - Grey of course!
