“My community motivates me. I Think it is important to make conscious decisions about the products we use and their impact on the environment and the community. I can’t stress enough how important it is to me for us to change our way of thinking as a community with regards to waste, chemicals, refuse and and the effects they have on the environment. We have become such a society of consumption, and we tend to buy products that are inexpensive and of inferior quality. By buying products that are well-made and of high quality we are giving back to our community. When we buy local we keep our money in the community and support the locals around us on a more intimate level.”
Keffie Lancaster, proprietor – Keffie’s Eco-Chic Boutique
Keffie Pronunciation: keh-fee
When a Greek mentions the word, kefi, they are referring to: joy, spirit, passion, happiness, triumph, mojo, excitement, feeling good, having fun, or loving life. I has always been passionate about art, design, food and my community. My boutique has given me an outlet and opportunity to combine all of my passions into one place; a purposeful retail store built with love and good energy that gives back to the community and planet as a local business that promotes mindful living. My inspiration comes from a wide range of sources starting with my life-long exposure and involvement in the family’s interior design business and my travels to faraway lands, both in real life and in my dreams.
I have selected goods to carry in the boutique with my passions in mind. I love local jewels, art and food and hope to have a wide variety of represented in the shop. Some of my great vendors and their stories can be read here:
