It’s rare a new business will start in hard times, but one mother-daughter duo is trying to beat the odds.
Sylvia Boyer and her daughter Anita today opened the Boyer Boutique and Cafe in Dresden. The duo is hosting their business incredibly close to home.
“We weren’t sure if we were going to make any money or not, so we didn’t want to do anything too risky,” said daughter Anita Boyer. “We never really used our dining room, we always ate in teh living room anyway, so we thought why not turn it into a shop?”
Boyer says she wanted a place for her mom to be able to showcase her talents.
“My mom is really talented with the cards that she makes, so I just thought that she should have something of her own,” she said.
The boutique and cafe’s grand opening celebration starts today and will go through Saturday.
The store sells chocolates, coffee, hand crafted cards and other gift items.
The boutique is located at 1319 Main Street.
