The Boutique Experience

Next time you're driving around Salem and feeling the deep, burning desire for some new jewelry, you should stop by the Mission Mill.
You may just find yourself standing outside the big, white doors, opening them, and walking into an adorable store called Danner and Soli.

You would walk in and say to yourself about a million times, "that's so cute!" as you meander through the store full of home decor, handmade clothing and bags, and tons of seasonal items.

You would eventually find yourself at a gorgeous display of all kinds of jewelry (remember, that's why you're there). Then you would look closer and...

You'd see MY JEWELRY!!!

Connie had this cute apple crate and I hammered a bunch of well-placed nails in it. Each nail has a few varieties of a letter of the alphabet. The chains to the right are not the ones that will normally be sold with them. There will be some ribbons and chains in the future. Customers will be able to purchase charms individually and add a necklace, if they want.

I'm pretty stoked about this little adventure. The owner is a friend from church who stumbled upon someone wearing some of my charms and asked the lady about them, curious about trying to sell them in her shop. Turns out we're in Bible study together and I emailed her, and now here we are! Danner and Soli is seriously a great store. I came in today with 66 charms to sell and left with a new pair of earings that I had been eyeing for a while! There's even a bunch of awesome stuff on sale right now. Yay! I'm so excited I have some stuff I've made for sale in an awesome store! Thanks to all you friends who have encouraged me to pursue this fun new hobby.


  1. I'm so proud of you!! It looks great and I can't wait to go check out the shop! Yea!

  2. Erin that's SO awesome!!! I didn't even know you were doing that! I'll for sure have to go check it out now! YAY!

  3. It IS a very cute shop but now it just got a WHOLE lot cuter!

    YAY you!

  4. They're so cute, Erin! I know I'm going to have to look into those cute charms. I don't know how my boys would feel about their initials all dolled up hangin' around my neck though. :) They may just have to stuff it!
