About Us: How a Military Spouse Went From Homeschooling to Owning a 5 Star Boutique

Before the Beginning

As a homeschool mom and natural creative, I would craft in the random spare moments of time I had. It was, and still is my stress relief and self care time. A friend purchased a Silhouette craft cutter and introduced me to a whole new world of crafting. While she used hers mainly for homeschool projects, I broke into the world of vinyl decals and very soon after, graphic tees, which became my favorite thing to do. It was also a favorite among friends, and locals! I loved designing and making the graphic tees; while everyone else loved wearing them!  This was my first step into the wide world of fashion!

While my graphic tees were keeping me busy; as a military wife, eventually it was time to move. Back to Alaska for our second stint there it was.  Once unpacked,  I started adding more products to better serve my customers. Graphic tees were the first in fashion for us, then those super, buttery soft leggings, then hoodies, then more fashion tops and sweaters, and not far after, a full boutique of fashion, gifts and accessories.

The Beginning

While living in Florida, my family and I spent much of our spare time at our church.  We became close to our church family volunteering, having fun and studying the Bible. I felt the move back to Alaska was an opening for me to begin what I thought was missing the last time we lived there.  A solid, and exciting Bible study. After months into trying to convince my new church why they should offer this Bible study, I knew something was just not right.  IF this is what I was supposed to be doing, it should NOT be this hard. One evening, after pulling into the driveway after one of these church meetings; I was so frustrated I couldn't even get out of my car.  I texted my husband and let him know I was headed straight back to church to pray. I needed to get on my hands and knees and pray in earnest that the Lord light whatever path I was supposed to be walking on.  I wanted to run, I felt so ready, and although I thought I knew where to go; every path continued to a dead end. The following morning is really where Adonia started. A customer, who became a close friend, suggested I open a store front. This simple comment got my wheels turning to the "what if's" and my husband was excited at the thought of getting all my tees, tops, leggings and everything else that went with it, out of our home. It was either a storage/warehouse space or a storefront.  Storefront it is!

Why We Do What We Do

When I first started Adonia, it was fun shopping for cute looks in comfortable fabrics. Our ladies loved the comfort and value we provided, but I was shocked at how many women were blind to their own natural beauty. Surprisingly, many women are uncertain about what looks good on them, aren't comfortable enough to wear something they love on someone else, or just don't know where to start when it came to practical style. My goal with Adonia is for every woman to be able to discover clothing and a style that they genuinely feel gorgeous, comfy, and confident in! No one should have to feel limited by body type, shape, size or even age! Every woman should wake up, feel inspired, be confident and comfortable in the light she was intended to radiate! Think it, believe it, do it. Our goal is for every woman to be unapologetically her truest self. That is the definition of Adonia, a deeply beautiful woman.
Exceeding expectations are the norm at Adonia. Allow us to surprise you!
