Success stories are always fun, especially when they’re home-grown!
Two women, Kelly Burgin and Christine Thornton, have built a very successful business here in the City of Auburn Hills and in the process have remarkably donated over $1 million dollars to hospitals across the country.
The company, Boutique to U, was created 10 years ago after the owners were downsized from their corporate jobs. In an attempt to achieve a better work/life balance and to pursue their personal interests, they began making jewelry and eventually shifted their focus to fashionable and affordable handbags.
Boutique to U partners with hospitals for fundraising events and employs creative fundraising strategies. Their “Boutique in a Box” provides fundraisers everything they need to hold a successful event, while allowing them to maximize their profits utilizing their own staff or volunteers.
They offer an incredible selection of luggage, handbags, wristlets, wallets, lunch totes, and handbag accessories. Oh, I almost forgot that they sell luggage tags too!
Boutique to U is located at 2285 N. Opdyke Road, Suite C. Their warehouse is open Monday thru Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You can also purchase their merchandise on the web by clicking here. Happy Shopping!
