JOY = My Happy Place!  ๐Ÿ’›


Welcome to my first blog.ย  At 56 years old I never thought I would be writing a blog!ย  ๐Ÿ˜Šย  I guess there is a first time for everything!

Ever since I can remember I LOVE TO SHOP!ย  My beautiful Mother introduced me to this favorite hobby.ย  Some of my favorite memories with my mother is shopping Thursday evenings downtown Grand Forks, ND at Vanity.ย  I am sure many of you my age remembers Vanity? ย ๐Ÿ˜Šย  One thing about Vanity that I will never forget is the wonderful customer service.ย  After shopping we would head back to East Grand Forks, MN and enjoy pizza at Mikeโ€™s Pizza.ย  If you are from my home town you totally understand this!ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  Maybe this is where it all began?

Years later while living in Oakes, ND I met a woman named Jessica Quandt.ย  God put this woman in my life for a reason.ย  She is the reason I have a happy place!ย  ๐Ÿ˜Š

I started working for Jessica part-time at her boutique, JQ Clothing Co.ย  I was the Saturday gal for quite a few years.ย  Fast forward, I am now working full-time at the boutique.ย  I have a sign in my office that says welcome to my corner of the world.ย  This corner of my world brings me so much joy!ย  I feel humbled working with an incredible team of women and helping all our beautiful customers!

As I continue my journey at JQ I want this place to be your happy place also.ย  As women we love to feel beautiful inside and out.ย  If you need a hug or some new cute clothes, please come see us at JQ.ย  The fun thing is, you can see us in Oakes ND, Detroit Lakes, MN and Medora, ND.ย 

Until next time, think about where your happy place is?ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Love and Friends,
