Having met by chance in 2009, the owners of Sassy (Dawn & Marsha) have come a long way. An idea that started between two next-door neighbors chit chatting every evening, became a reality with hard work and a lotta SASS!
Originally Sassy was a kiosk on the beach of Port Aransas, Texas, given the name "FUNKY TOWN" (what were we thinking). One day we stumbled upon a vacant building in Downtown Rockport (our quaint little town) and jumped at the opportunity to expand! We had no idea what we were in for, or what we were doing for that matter. BUT it turned out to be the best decision we ever made!
Since that time it has been an absolute whirlwind of an adventure with lots & lots of learning. Just as Sassy has grown, so has our friendship with each other as well as each of our customers, & we couldn't be happier!
What we LOVE about our story is knowing that anything is possible. With hard work, determination & dedication you can do anything! Take it from two girls that had no idea what we were doing, to running not only a brick & mortar store but running an online store as well. Almost 11 years later with no end in sight we have had so much fun mixed with...sleepless nights, anxiety & more new friendships than we ever thought possible.
Our motto is focused on unleashing every woman's inner sassy side;
"LIVE CONFIDENT, LOVE YOURSELF & BE SASSY"!
We want for every person who shops with us to realize that a little Sass never hurt a soul...When you step into our store or even shop with us online you get a little sassy in every item. We remind our customers to be themselves, have fun, and live life to the fullest. There is nothing you Can't do! The best accessory a girl can have is some confidence. Oh and a little bit of lipstick!
Just us Sassy Girls!
Just two girls with a dream & a vision!
Marsha, on the left, is a Texas girl through and through. She was a teacher for many years before hanging up her hat and crazily going into retail. (girl be crazy!) Sometimes working in retail is like dealing with kindergarteners. LOL
Dawn on the Right. Louisiana girl turned Texan. She may embrace her Texas home BUT Louisiana will always be in her heart. You can take the girl out of cajun country but you can NEVER take the cajun out of the girl! Bookeeper by trade turned retail. (but thank goodness for my bookeeping background in this crazy retail world)
Our Humble beginnings!
The Start of something great! Okay, okay we won't lie...we didn't really sell anything and we really didn't know what we were doing. I think we were really just hanging out on the beach and having a good time. BUT it certainly gave us the bug and somewhere, somehow we mustered up the courage to take it even further. Over the next 10 years we have grown bigger and bigger and then took it worldwide online! Y'all this has been an absolute adventure and beyond our wildest dreams! I can't tell you how wonderful it is to do what you love. Work rarely ever seems like work and we have an amazing group of Sassy girls to work along side of us that help make this dream a reality.
Sorry about the fuzzy picture but it's pretty old (before the great age of camera phones) and it's the only one we have.
Where we are now...
A Long way from our humble beginnings...(at least we think so)
A building to come available in our little town is not something that you see often. So running across our Historic building was a sign of fate. And while we were both nervous as all get out, we knew this was meant to be, and we started our journey.
Although we have outgrown our building and wish it would miraculously double in size, it has become home for us. (ghost and all). So until the time online takes over and we need a warehouse to ship from, know that every package is lovingly packed and shipped from here. You may have heard before, with every online order a business owner does a little happy dance and it is spot on!
So from all of us to all of you, a huge THANK YOU for making and continuing to make two girls' dreams come true!
PS. in this pic we had just been hit by a hurricane (Harvey, we were ground zero) and we are still repainting and "fixing".
