About Us

Once upon a time...There was a working mom trying to figure out how to create balance in her life and spend more quality time with her family...

That was me, along with a million other working moms! After many long talks with good friends who struggled with the same daunting tasks, one bit of advice in particular from a very wise friend and smart woman stayed at the top of my mind…Live Your Life with No Regrets!

With this in mind, 9 months ago I woke up and decided it was time for a drastic change and walked away from my career as a VP of Merchandise Planning for a clothing company in NYC. Working your way up the corporate ladder is one long, tough climb. It certainly had its excitement. And, was it glamorous? Well I suppose that's in the eye of the beholder…

The crazy commute, daily grind of working 10 + hours, and frequent business trips were no simple task when trying to raise a young daughter. So...I gave it all up to be more in touch with my daughter's life. My sweet daughter Julia is over the moon and could not be happier. My husband has been very supportive of my choice, but I think he wakes up every day baffled by the fact I walked away from a lucrative career that I worked so diligently to achieve.

One thing that became very clear to me when my decision was made (believe me it was not an easy one)…I can always go back to a career, but I can never get back the time I missed spending with my young daughter and husband.

Being home provided plenty of free time to clean out closets, dressers, etc. Which I admit is not one of my favorite pastimes; I mean seriously how many times a week do I need to clean the playroom! But, it did spark an idea...Julia's Treasure Chest. I thought why not use my years of experience and create an online unique shopping experience, a kid's boutique selling new and previously loved items. Buying children's clothing resale is a great way to get beautiful quality clothes at a huge savings and it's an easy and fun way to be green.
