Local Love: The Mason Jar Monroe

Get to know sisters, Lori and Courtney, of The Mason Jar Monroe in Monroe, Connecticut.

"We opened our doors on October 20, 2015. We were inspired by the fact that there's nothing like our shop in Monroe. Both of us have both always wanted to own a boutique, and thought that our hometown was the perfect place.

We carry women's clothing, accessories and home goods. All of our accessories and home goods are Made in the USA, a lot from CT. Products that are trending right now are accessories and clothing, especially BBA Bracelets, Northeast Nutmeg candles, The 203 clothing and Cinder + Salt clothing. We handpick every item, most through Etsy and some from local vendors recommending others.

Some challenges have been knowing how much to order of each product and how often to order.

We love all of the stories we've heard from customers, and the positive feedback we get from them. I'm sure we'll have some interesting stories once we've been opened longer.

On February 11, 2016, we hosted a Galentines event. Local vendor BBA Bracelets was there doing a popup shop and a giveaway. We also did a shop giveaway, as well as a giveaway from The 203. We served Mason jar cookies and mini cupcakes from Wildflour Confections."
