What does your business do?

European Living is a boutique with a curated collection of European coats, tableware, jewelry, and comforters.

What is "super" about your business?  Why is it special?

We import unique products from Europe which capture the latest trends and bring them to our local customers.  

Tell us a bit about yourself…

When not working, I enjoy playing with my kids.

If you could pick a superpower, what would it be?

Transporting myself to Europe and finding all kinds of high-quality, handmade goods for our boutique.

Why did you choose to invest in our community?

I've enjoyed being in this area for many years.

What local organizations have you been able to support in the past?

West Suburban Hospital

What's the weirdest thing you sell or offer? Or have there been any odd customer requests?

Surprising to some, we sell little, furry balls to attach to purse zippers.  

Name three of your favorite local businesses (besides yourself, of course!)

Toast to Paint, 38 Little Angels Daycare, and Sushi House top my list.
