My clothing career began in 1990 when I opened my first clothing boutique, "Felicia's Frills," in Cantonment, Florida, north of Pensacola. After moving to Starks, Louisiana in 1993 I shared my experience and God given talents with the ladies of our church. It was definitely a team effort as we began to sell girls Easter dresses in 1994 as a fund raiser for our church building fund. We sold in our church fellowship hall, motel rooms and conference rooms, craft fairs, bazaars, ladies retreats, ladies conferences, store parking lots, and anywhere we were allowed to set up. In 1996 I began selling ladies 2 piece micro pleat skirt sets. These were sold to choirs, chorales, ensembles, schools, bands, wedding parties, and more. We sold our first large order in 1996 to Mrs. Dedie Cooley, Dean Of Music at Jackson College of Ministries in Jackson Mississippi. As a result of her order and her references, we sold hundreds and hundreds of these skirt sets to church choirs/individuals nationally and internationally. Thanks to all the many colleges, church choirs, missionaries, and individuals all over the world that have supported our work, and endeavour to build a work for the Glory Of God!
A very special thanks to all the volunteers at Calvary Apostolic for your hard work, long hours, and dedication to this successful fund raiser! As a result of all the teamwork, we were able to pay off our church building, and approx 24 acres of land within 6 years. We were able to help pay our debt by donating all the profits from the clothing sales. All the profits from my website & my local boutique goes into the church building fund.
To our loyal, long time customers a special thank-you! To our new customers, we welcome you! It is a pleasure to offer beautiful clothing for you and your family. May God Bless each of you. We appreciate all your business over the past 26 years.
In God's Service,
Jeremy, Felicia, Tamara & Hannah (Chaddick) Shields
