Jillians Top Drawer is currently an online boutique for women.  We specialize in fashion, accessories, handbags, handmade & wholesale jewelry, shoes and body products collection.  Tricia Kvidt, the owner and mother, Victoria Nory, the stylist and daughter.  My inspiration for the name was created after the birth of my first grand daughter Jillian Renee.  Jillians Top Drawer is established as an LLC business, registered in Newnan Georgia. We also have the required resale license for our business.  We have been in business for 15 months.

Our body product collection has really been successful.  Our collection includes body butters, lip balm, and handmade natural soaps.  We make all our products from scratch with only the best ingredients.  We would like to extend our collection to both salt and sugar body scrubs, assorted fragrances of bath salts, facial scrubs, foam hand soap, and shampoo and conditioner. Some of the ingredients we use in our body butters that make them so popular.  Shea butter, mango butter, cocoa butter, avocado oil, coconut oil, beeswax (it heals skin very well).  Our butters are all organic.  We also have used grapeseed oil, Shea Olein, Jojoba oil and sweet almond oil.  Our soaps currently we have goats milk, and oatmeal soap.  We want to expand it to olive oil, honey and shea butter soaps.  All of these ingredients are powerful and feed your skin.  We have many repeat customers.The demand for our products has become increasingly popular.  This also has motivated us to extend our body product collection with more options.

Why do we want to expand our body collection.  Well first, I love making it.  I was my first customer.  I have always had issues with finding a great lotion.  I have tried everything on the market.  Nothing seem to work. My skin was always dried and cracked.  Any time I shaved, my skin would be extremely irritated and I could not use anything on them for days.  That is why it was so important to incorporate a body product collection in our boutique. I know there are shea butters, cocoa butters on the market.  But they were always hard and I didn't like the scent in raw form.  And remember not every shea butter or cocoa butter are the same. There are some very "cheap" types.  That is why we buy ours from a wholesaler that sales only organic and imported from Africa.  My body butter is light creamy, and we have different scents to please anyone's desired taste.  Our products contains NO WATER.. We only use the ingredients we describe in our products.  We want repeat customers, and we want them to be 100% happy and send their friends. 

After creating our body butter, I decided to start making soaps.. This is so refreshing to me.  Our family hasn't only gone more "green" in our eating habits, but now in our skin products.  My family loves my soaps.  I have given soaps to teachers, family, and strangers samples of my soaps.. They usually end up becoming a customer.  It is even safe to use for your dogs.  And you can also wash your hair with our soaps. As our company grows, I find better ingredients to add for softening, moisturizing, and conditioning the skin.  

I have already been doing research on expanding our skin products.. Again, creating nothing but the best product for our bodies.  My goal has always been opening our first store going into our 2nd year.. Expanding our body collection, marketing to people that love organic, natural, and great skin products will definitely help push us to that reality.
Any of our fund (helpers) donating at least $5 will get a jar of our body butter!!!!!!!! I want everyone that invests in our goal to have the opportunity to sample our GREAT product..Any of our fund (helpers) donating $25 and over will be able to select any of our skin product of their choice. 

I am excited that RocketHub has been created for someone like me "small business" with limited funds, but big goals and ideas.  This platform will and can help me achieve my ultimate goal - to build an awesome "brand" that can be known around the world.
Thank you for taking the time to read my campaign. 

RocketHub is not an investment or charity. It is an exchange: Funds from supporters for Goods from me.
It's a "keep what I raise" funding mechanism: If I don't reach my financial goal I get to keep what I raise.
