All About Amy And Amelias
129 south Main street
Hutchinson, Kansas 67501
It all started long ago in a one-light town Nickerson, Kansas where I was born and raised.
I was raised in a wonderful hard working family. My parents own the local grocery store Berridges IGA which was started by my Grandpa Berridge in 1946. When I was a kid I didn’t realize it then I was learning the basics of business. Growing up in the store and working there for my dad from a young age I learned basics that can not be taught in a textbook. Like Stocking shelves, mopping floors and learning kindness and how to treat others from my dad.
my pride of hard work And my entrepreneurial genes laid the foundation for the road ahead.
There weren’t any business plans for this adventure . . . just dreams and a whole lot of faith! I set out to find a great business, but instead found a great life.
It all started in 1998, the year my son, Gus was born. I did free lance art for businesses, and made Jewelry. I didn't realize that my Jewelry making would bloom into a business. so busy in fact that I opened a Boutique in Downtown Hutchinson, Kansas in 2004. The year I had my daughter Willow, she has grown up in the store with me.
In 2021 I was ready to grow my business and expand so I moved to the corner of the block in a much bigger store and expanded into a full boutique it took me 22 years to get where I am today.
Thank you all so much for making this happen!!!! I am so Excited! I love what I do! I can not tell you how happy it makes me to see people get so excited when they come in! But to see the Huge Smiles on all the faces when they find that perfect outfit, gift, or piece of one of a kind jewelry. It is the Best feeling ever. Thank you ~ Owner and Designer ~ Amy Quillin
