Meet our Columbus fashion guest bloggers Sara Guice and Miranda Boyle, the sisters who own Grandview clothing and accessories boutique Thread
Wow... what an amazing year it has been. THREAD has been life-changing, and in such an amazing way. We always talked about opening our own business one day, and after years of practicing, planning and dreaming, THREAD became a reality.
We grew up 18 months apart in an entrepreneurial household where we hosted everything from neighborhood fashion shows to Broadway musicals in order to raise some money to spend at the local candy store. (Ha!) Plus, we were directing, wardrobing and marketing before we even knew what those things were.
Miranda was always the leader at home-always available to help in moments of crisis, both in fashion and life. She leads our efforts at THREAD, and her background in retail, from managing big-box stores to a small boutique, has equipped her with experience and knowledge to develop the vision for THREAD.
After living abroad, Sara spent years running operations for small businesses. THREAD has been her first experience in retail, and she has enjoyed the process of learning and developing systems to carry out the vision for THREAD.
So, there it is-our story to date. Can't wait to see what the journey holds. Welcome to #threadlife.All About Us Sara Guice
