Chris loves working with women to help them find fun, trendy clothing at great prices. Whatnot Boutique is mobile and Chris loves working events all over the metro. She does home shows, corporate events, fundraising events and recently collaborated with Stillwater Skin, setting up a pop-up boutique inside the business. “I love helping women find that perfect article of clothing or accessory that gets them excited” stated Chris. “It’s so much fun offering suggestions for items a client might not normally try, or for unique combinations, and I think that’s a big part of the value I provide. I purchase from coast to coast for trendy items with excellent price points to match!”
