A bit about how the Closet Shopper was born!

Hi, my name is Shannon & I am the owner/operator of The Closet Shopper in downtown Santa Cruz. After turning 35 and realizing that I needed to put into action a lifelong dream, I got the wheels turning and opened my boutique in January 2011. 

I have always been fascinated with "playing store". As a young girl this involved hanging purses and clothes around my bedroom, setting up a cash register, and of course practicing being a business owner by begging my family to "shop" at my boutique.

My business goal has been to create a "boutique style" recycled fashion clothing store for women that is relaxing, friendly and good for the planet. I absolutely love clothing & accessories, and the concept of recycled fashion is even better for the environment, the pocket book, as well as a great way to support local business owners.

Here I am, just over 3 years later (and one Baby), enjoying every minute of "playing store" for a living. Life is great!  Now you can check out our NEW project, The Closet Shopper FASHION TRUCK!
