Meet the Maker: Eileen, Chelsea’s Mom

Okay, so this isn’t really a  ‘Meet the Maker’ in the sense we normally use it… but she made ME, so that has to count for something.

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, I wanted to take the time to thank my mom, Eileen, for everything she has done and continues to do for me. Beyond the whole ‘being my mom for the past twenty seven years’ thing, she is a huge part of ANOMIE and the shop would not exist if it wasn’t for her — she taught me to be independent, stubborn, and creative… all traits that made the possibility of working a 9-5 for someone else next to impossible. I’m kidding… sort of. 

Without my mom’s encouragement I wouldn’t have my three favorite things in life: my boyfriend of 7 years, Ryan; my Boston Terrier, Dexter, and ANOMIE. Her $7000 loan was the foundation upon which this thriving and growing business was built. An extra room in her home was ANOMIE’s first office. She meets me at the studio if I need help photographing new arrivals. She planted our infamous cactus box in front of the shop (please see: #TheCaseofthePricklyBandit). Plus, she’s one of my best customers! Do YOU own every Wool Cloud Scarf known to man!? Didn’t think so! Get on her level, people. Basically, there is no telling the story of ANOMIE without including her and her contributions.

So, I owe her a lot — like a ‘Clare V. Agnes Maison Backpack‘ lot — this Mother’s Day and every day.

Thank you, mom. Love you!

(And I’d tell you that with one of Our Heiday’s beautiful mom cards, but you’ve seen them all already.)
