PJ’s Unique Peek Boutique: Bag Giveaway

Hi, friends! Boy do I have a treat for you today. A few weeks ago, I met the owner of PJ’s Unique Peek Boutique, which is located in Kennebunkport, Maine. I had heard wonderful things about Jane (the owner) from my mom and her friend, Jeanne, and everything they said about her was entirely true. My first thought when I saw Jane, was “wow. She is stunning! And really fashionable.” Well, duh, she owns a clothing boutique, so I guess that makes sense. Anyway! Jane and I started talking about her store and how she just got on Facebook and was trying to get more “likes”, so when I said I wrote a blog and could possibly help with that, she jumped right on board!

Before I get to the giveaway (which you don’t want to miss), I want to share a little bit about Jane and how she got her business started. I’m always impressed when people have a goal and go for it- no matter how big or small it is, working towards your goals or dreams is a huge accomplishment and something to be incredibly proud of.

Owning a women’s boutique has always been a dream of mine, although over the years I’ve worn many hats, but,…the stars aligned perfectly last spring.  My friend and I decided it was do or die, so we formed an LLC and proceeded to secure a “brick and mortar” location and do our due diligence, researching and preparing our business plan.

Lower Village Kennebunk, a stone’s throw from Kennebunkport and Dock Square, seemed to be the ideal spot and as a bonus there was parking in the rear of the building.  It never hurts to have former President and Mrs. Bush as neighbors!  We opened the boutique on July 5th.  In December, I had the opportunity to buy out my partner, so now the name PJ’s stands for Positively Jane’s.

I’m anticipating to have my online store up and running very soon.  Presently I’m offering some specials on the business Facebook page.  Soldsie and Paypal will be added to Facebook to enhance the selling and buying experience.

The boutique carries fun and fashionable women’s clothing, accessories and jewelry (Kazuri from Africa to locally made wire and stone jewelry).  The clothing lines include Pretty Women, Tribal, Parkhurst, Raffinalla and Southern Lady to name a few. My skin potions (soaps, creams, body butters and cleansers) are made in Maine.  Also, I have some unique gifts made by local artisans from beautiful burl bowls to framed prints to colorful luggage tags.

The days and hours are limited in the winter months, but the boutique is open seven days a week after Memorial day.

So, now that you have an idea about Jane and her store (which I’m dying to go to!), let’s get to the giveaway, shall we? Jane has been gracious enough to give me one of the gorgeous Latico bags that she sells in her store to giveaway on the blog. Made in the US, this leather bag is a “must-have” for any of us who are on the go and always in need of a big bag to carry everything. The straps are thin, so they stay in place on your shoulder- is there anything more annoying than having your bag constantly slip down off your shoulder??

On top of that, the leather is incredibly soft and I’m in love with the gorgeous blue color- perfect for the upcoming spring and summer season, right?? I’m really digging the liner fabric- it’s a nice surprise when you open the bag!

I also love that it has a zipper. Since I’m often on public transportation, I always look for bags with zippers to keep everything safe (not to mention when I’m in the car and my bag falls off the seat… having a zipper helps to eliminate everything falling all over the floor!). The bag is rather big and deep (perfect for carrying a laptop!), so I like that it comes with a handy little small, zippered pouch. There are also pockets for your phone, pens, cards, etc., but I’d use the zippered pouch to hold my chapsticks/lip-glosses, hand sanitzer, keys, etc. You could also use it to hold your cash if you decide to leave your bag in the car while you run errands or go out with friends.

    As always I LOVE your blog posts, Monique! Super cute bag, too – agreed on the zipper for riding the T :). I am looking forward to spring for the warmer weather, outdoor running (I’m a sissy in the winter), and longer days! And I will like the boutique in Facebook and can’t wait to go visit this summer!!

  2. Dana says:

    As much as I love winter weather, I do look forward to the spring so that I can play outside with my niece and nephew, and all of the kids I nanny for. It’s so fun to watch them explore the outdoors and learn about nature (such a lame way to get excited about a season, but if you’ve ever seen kids watch flowers grow and blossom, it’s pretty amazing!)

  3. Courtney says:

    This bag is so pretty – love the color! I am looking forward to warmer weather, walks outside and longer days!!

    I’m looking forward to spring because I honestly can’t wait to commute to work WITHOUT a million layers on in a polar vortex. So ready to retire my Uggs for the season!

  5. Alice Klochkova says:

    I am looking forward to being able to play golf again and going on more nature trips outdoors with pretty flowers starting to grow around 🙂

    Gorgeous bag!!! I loved reading about Jane and her boutique!
    I’m looking forward to sitting out on the deck – during the day and soaking in the heat and in the evening with a happy hour drink!!!

  7. Lisa says:

    I am looking forward to high heels and open toed shoes this spring! I also liked Burpees to Bubbly fb and PJs Unique Peek on fb!!

    Hi Nick, Great blog about “The Bag”–Wow! I’d love to have one of those bags, but I’ve instructed my friends to keep me away from any type of purse/bag–I have 23 of those in my closet, and 14 “evening bags”–I counted!!! By the way, PJ’s is such a fun place to shop–I got your Easter Basket surprises there, as well as a few treats for me(a hot pink jacket, and a beach cover-up). Can’t wait to take you there! Mom

    I’m looking forward to going barefoot in the yard and wine nights on the deck! So over this ridiculous winter!

    C-u-t-e bag! I’d love it to match the eclectic mash of colors that I wear with my jeans! And how…well…almost exotic would it be to tell everyone that I got it from a little shop in Maine. I live in north Alabama, where we are spending a cooooooooooold winter. I will be glad to ditch my Cuddle Duds and put on some light-weight fabric for a change. Hope you’ll drop by to visit me at http://www.thewritesteph.com. I write about life and culture with a little Alabama twist! Best regards, Stephanie

    Looking forward to wearing sandals and flowy dresses while I play outside for hours with my twin daughters. I can sure fit everything I need in that bag =)

  12. Kim says:

    So many things! Warm weather for sure after this winter, listening to the crickets on a warm night, planting my flower gardens! Also all my adventures I signed up for for the first time like the Warrior Dash, Color Run and the Climb for Air!!

  13. Danielle says:

    I’m looking forward to ALL things spring/summer…. Sandals, dresses, beach, getting a tan to name a few. The bag wouldn’t hurt either…

  14. Lauren says:

    Looking forward to all things spring—including drinking vino on the back deck. =) Love reading B2B (Burpees to Bubbly) and enjoy seeing posts in my FB newsfeed. Such a motivating blog as it helped me keep on track of my fitness goals during the “artic” winter.

  15. Cee says:

    I am looking forward to wearing something other than heavy socks and boots on my feet. Sooo ready for warmer weather!
