Employee Spotlight: Monique’s Occasional Shop, Finding Beauty In Everything

It has always been a dream of Monique’s to open her own shop.  For 7 years, revamping and reclaiming furniture has been a huge passion and hobby that she makes time for outside of her sales position here at Intereum.  This July, her dream came true when she and her daughter, Amber, opened their first occasional shop in Marine on St. Croix, MN, called ‘Reclaiming Beautiful’.  The shop opened for the month of July and will be reopening for 2 weekends in September. Make sure to stop out and see her incredible talents!

Amber and Mo make a great team as her daughter loves the hunt for furniture and has a special eye for pairing what can go with it.  Mo then takes these hidden gems and breathes a new life of beauty on them with paint and varnish.  The furniture seems to just fly out the door come the weekend; people are just loving their special shop!  Monique has a great connection with a group called Healing Haiti and 10% of each purchase goes to help this group provide fresh water, food, housing and education to those in need.

Visit Mo’s shop this weekend at 11 Judd St. Marine on St. Croix, MN. Doors open today at noon and until 7pm, Saturday 10am-7pm and Sunday 1am1-5pm.
