09 Oct Laynee’s Boutique
Laynee’s Boutique is one of several partners of Restored Creations, the candle-making social enterprise at the Center for Women & Children. We had the privilege of talking with Laynee’s owner, Jamie Bullard, about why she decided to support Restored Creations and sell our candles in her store.
Where is Laynee’s Boutique located and how long has it been in business?
Laynee’s Boutique is located at 125 N Avon Ave in Avon, IN, near the corner of 267 and Rockville Rd. We converted a former real estate office that was in a house into our boutique. We’ve been in business since April of 2017.
Who is Laynee?
Elaine is a family name and my daughter is Neela. We call her Nee, so we combined the two to make Laynee!
What type of merchandise do you offer the customer?
We specialize in amazing and unique women’s clothing, shoes, and jewelry but we also have accessories and candles. Customers can shop at our store or purchase merchandise online at layneesboutique.com. We like to support different organizations that give back. In addition to supporting Restored Creations, we support Headbands of Hope (for children with cancer) and The Penny Story (for survivors of human trafficking).
How did you first learn about Restored Creations candles?
I have a friend that used to have a boutique on the south side of Indianapolis, and she’s the one I learned about Restored Creations from. We had the privilege of visiting this past May. God is moving and doing amazing things there. We were so excited to partner with the women. We all have a battle to fight. It just looks different for each person. “The LORD will fight for you, and you only have to be silent.” Exodus 14:14
Why did you decide to become a retailer for Restored Creations?
We absolutely love Wheeler Mission and what you do. We also love what you’re doing at Restored Creations, providing skills to the women, and we wanted to get behind that. We just love the candles. They smell awesome!
Which of our scents has been the best-selling scent for you, and how do you market our products?
Pink Paradise has been a big seller for us. We have a display with information that explains what Restored Creations is. We also market Restored Creations on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Have you had any special conversations with customers who purchased a candle that you’d like to share?
We have conversations with our customers all the time about Wheeler Mission and Restored Creations. We explain to them what you do, and that Restored Creations is a ministry of Wheeler. A lot of time people are blown away. They know about Wheeler Mission because it’s been around for a long time and it’s a well-known homeless shelter in Indianapolis, but they don’t know about Restored Creations and what you do for women and children. We get excited when we tell our customers about your story!
What is your favorite bible verse and why?
Jeremiah 29:11, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'” God has a plan for my life and my family’s life. I take comfort and hope in knowing that God’s plan is always perfect for us.
