Owner Christina’s Story
Christina Christopher’s style and fashion sense can be directly attributed to her late mother. A teacher with a love of fashion, she instilled her bold sense of style and passion for finding the best bargains into her daughter at a young age.
Christina went on to work for Nordstrom’s as a Personal Stylist Regional Manager for 27 stores in the Northeast and Capital Region, building a successful career in the fashion industry. When her mother was diagnosed with cancer in 2011, Christina decided she wanted to do something that allowed her to be with her mother during her treatment and recovery. She recalled that her mother had opened her first store selling home décor at the age of 28. Following in her mother’s footsteps Christina decided, also at the age of 28, to open Country Shabby Chic, focusing on furniture that she refinished by hand and other home goods. She added classes to the schedule, teaching others to do simple home DIY projects found on Pinterest. The classes quickly became the most popular part of her business and continue today. They have expanded into corporate events, bridal parties and birthday parties for all ages.
In December 2014, Christina added a small line of clothing to Country Shabby Chic’s offerings. It did so well that she began adding more clothing to her inventory. When the opportunity to move to a new location on Patrick Street opened up, she knew it was time to make the switch to becoming a clothing boutique and studio. Dropping the name “Country,” in October 2015, Christina opened Shabby Chic Boutique and Creative Studios.
