Mama Monday | The Gemma Shop | October 2016

Meet Lauren.  The wonderful owner behind The Gemma Shop, an online only boutique with pop up shops around Columbus.  

I had been following Lauren on social media, for awhile before getting the chance to meet her in person and I am so glad our schedules lined up so we could grab dinner.  It was around three hours of talking business, family, motherhood, and everything in between.  Lauren has such a wonderful energy and a passion for her business and her family.  She took a huge leap when starting The Gemma Shop, and it's her dream come true.  She is passionate about the Columbus community and providing one of a kind choices when it comes to apparel, accessories, and items for your home to her customers.  

The Gemma Shop has many pop up shops around Columbus, and you can follow them on social media to find out exactly when and where the next one will be.  I always find pop up shops so much fun, because you can see those items from Instagram in person, feel the fabric, and try on the items you've been dying to have in your closet.  It's also an amazing opportunity to meet Lauren, the woman behind the scenes and see her passion for you, her customer, and her business, firsthand.  

Lauren has a background in fashion from her years as a buyer at a large retail store, and studying fashion merchandising in college. She left her corporate job after many years to pursue her dream of entrepreneurship and launched The Gemma Shop. 

Lauren is a wonderful mother and loves her family deeply. She is truly an excellent example to her kids and those around her, that you can be whatever you want to be.  Work hard, be kind, and you can make your dreams come true.
