We were recently given an opportunity to present our merchandise to a trendy clothing and accessory store, located in Mississippi, called Janie Rose Boutique. It was our first time attempting to put our pieces in a store front, so we were overwhelmed with excitement.
As we prepped our product and prayed for guidance we set out to Southaven, Mississippi where we were greeted by the buyer, Jessica, and the owner, Gale. They could not have been more warm and welcoming to us. We spread out our product and let the buying begin!!
We explained the mission behind the merchandise, as I always like to say, and prayed for the Lord to do the rest. We received such positive response from Janie Rose and the customers that were shopping as we presented.
Everyone was so excited to support and help the cause! “You’ve got to give back in order to receive,” said Gale, the shop owner. It is such a blessing to join hands with Christian people with the same perspective.
Jessica picked out various necklaces and watches for both of her stores located in Hernando and Southaven, MS. She was looking forward to not only purchasing our pieces but also to promote our mission and raise awareness.
“We wanted to purchase BFR product not only because of its beauty, but because of the impact its mission has on those in need in Africa and worldwide,” said Jessica, Store Manager and Buyer. “We just want to help in anyway we can!”
She even created a special display just for Be Free Rev in the center of her store that really illustrated who BFR is!
When we went back to Kenya recently, we shared our excitement with Priscilla, the creative mind behind the Papers, and when she saw her picture inside of a store in America, she responded to us with, “I feel… I feel… Pride.”
Cannot explain how that moved us as we could see her head was raised a little higher that day.
Thank you Janie Rose for joining. the. revolution.
