Happy International Women’s Day!! 🚺🌿 A fitting day to finally “introduce” ourselves to our followers and customers. We are the women and mother-daughter behind the show of daily operations, styling and curated collections.
I’m Des, the social narrator, photographer and wearer of many hats at Willow Creek. I’m also the daughter to Sonya, who’s dream ever since my brother and I were little was to create a shop that was welcoming, beautiful and full of treasures.
Sonya, my mom is the creative visionary behind Willow Creek (even though she’d NEVER say that about herself, she is). She has always had a gift for creating and styling spaces to feel so welcoming and homey AND (I can speak from experience) she is an exceptional and thoughtful gift giver.
After 20+ years of dreaming, together as a family we put rubber to the road and set off to bring this dream to life. It’s been an up and down road as most businesses are but we continue to stand together - learning, excelling, arguing, making up, making mistakes and endlessly creating and dreaming up new collections and concepts for the store.
One of the most fulfilling aspects of this business besides being the closest we’ve ever been in our mother-daughter relationship, has been meeting women from all walks of life. We hear your struggles, your excitement and your willingness to share a tiny part of yourself with us as you shop for your home or the perfect gift.
We can’t thank our customers and friends enough for supporting our little shop on the corner. Happy International Women’s Day!
Thank you to @finley.photography for our first photo together in the shop 🖤
