A gifted young customer

October 14, 2008

Rebecca and her mum Kara have been coming to my store, Peche Mignon, since I opened. It was actually 3 years ago exactly this day, October 14, 2005!

Rebecca’s 12 years old. She’s in 7th grade at Saint Thomas the Apostle in San Francisco. She came with Kara a few weeks ago and bought a prop I was using as a display for my necklaces. I wrapped it in tissue paper and handled it to her in a paper bag.

Rebecca came back last week to show me what she had done with it. She made a dress out of the tissue paper and wrapped it around the prop with a necklace she bought at the store to make it look like a doll. Isn’t that amazing? It’s actually much better than a doll when you realize that Rebecca drew her project first, and then created it. I don’t know many children whith such a creative gift for drawing and creating such a beautiful thing.

Rebecca’s dream is to come and work at my store. I told her that her talent belongs to fashion. This young woman deserves to become a stylist, don’t you think?

Bravo Rebecca!
