- Kiel & Ana / Spots On The FOX
We have been in Geneva since 2009.
I was attracted to this line of work because it gives me great purpose! It sounds cliché, but I LOVE fashion and I LOVE home décor.
To source and provide unique artisan goods to the consumer.
The most challenging part of owning and running this business is sourcing and buying unique artisan brands for 8 product categories (clothing, jewelry, handbags, footwear, home accents, lighting, furniture, original artwork), and finding time for a personal life.
When a customer loves us so much that they come back over and over again.
Artemisia distinguishes itself from other small retailers in that we are a lifestyle boutique. By that, I mean a person can literally outfit their body and their home all from one space. Our product lines are that vast. The other cool thing is that I try, as the primary buyer, to source from artisans who try and help others. Whether they give a portion of their sales to a cause they are passionate about, or they employ groups of disadvantaged peoples in other fair trade countries to help make their goods, it means a lot to me to be able to support those artisans.
Offer exceptional customer service. And, turn, turn, turn, your inventory!
Our newest endeavor is our e-commerce store, and joining Spots On The FOX. We want to share our wonderful brands with those who can not shop our brick and mortar location. The exciting part lies in the potential for sales growth.
