Happy International Women’s Day from one of Starkville’s very own female entrepreneurs, Jennifer Burt of Gypster Veil Boutique! Read more about her blooming new business below, and to shop visit: http://bit.ly/21WtEbU
When and where did your business begin?
My business began here in Starkville almost 4 years ago when I left my job at a wedding and formal gown shop to pursue my own interests. I started online selling used designer clothes, then moved into selling new clothes online, having a location in a booth in Oxford, to finally opening my own boutique last fall.
What was your inspiration for going into this industry?
Having a degree in fashion with a business minor was the main reason. Fashion has always been a part of my life!
What made you choose Starkville, Mississippi?
I ended up back in my college town after stints in NYC and Las Vegas hoping to gain high-end experience to move back to Las Vegas and work at a designer boutique. Once I decided to go into business for myself, I liked how affordable the area is, access to the college, and the flexibility to travel.
Look for more about Gypster Veil in the weeks to come! Thank you Jennifer, rock on.
