Happy Friday!! So...not that this matters to me personally (Go Pokes!) but I'm excited to share one of my FAVORITE spots in Norman right on the heels of OU/Texas weekend!!
Mariah and her mother Barbara have welcomed Freckles and myself into their little family with open arms... and let me tell y'all, adding Antique Garden as a Freckles retailer was a DREAM COME TRUE DAY!!
As a product-based business owner, we all have those stores that are our dream stores and Antique Garden was on that list for me. I've personally loved shopping there the past few years and getting to know Barbara and Mariah since delivering that first order has been so much fun! Ladies know how to enjoy life!! #chipsandqueso as Mariah would say.
PLUS - shop dog Leo is the SWEETEST. Dare I say, my favorite part of visiting is to get puppy snuggles from him?! I mean... look at that face!
Enjoy this fun interview and shop with these lovely ladies in Norman at Antique Garden on Campus Corner.
