Cincy Chic: What is Busy Bee Boutique?
Maggie Bruns, Owner of Busy Bee Boutique: Busy Bee Boutique is a gift store. We opened our doors on February 1, 2008, and have been striving ever since to stay true to our motto: Shopping is fun! We have a great selection of gifts for infants, kids, teens and women. We even have a few gifts for men. We offer a friendly atmosphere that encourages you to come in, browse, find unique gifts, have a chat and ultimately enjoy a little bit of retail therapy. We’ll even wrap your gifts up for you so you can walk out of the doors with a gift that’s ready for giving.
Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind it?
