Georganne established her brick and mortar, Frances, in Central Phoenix 13 years ago. As the creator behind “love Phoenix or leave Phoenix,” she has put her heart and soul into creating what is known as a Phoenix staple.
The shop includes a carefully curated selection of clothing, jewelry, home goods, and novelty gifts.
Though Georganne was a stay-at-home mom for 18 years and flipped homes for a while after, she was in retail beforehand and also pursued a creative career making jewelry out of vintage pieces for local shops. It was no surprise that she decided to create Frances, a one-of-a-kind boutique.
She has developed personal connections with her makers over the years, fostering relationships. Not only does she personally meet with artists and help mentor them with their brands and small businesses, Geroganne has also created an event to host these vendors called Crafeteria.
The award-winning annual craft fair links artists with the community and celebrates our culture here in Phoenix. It will take place this Friday, December 6th, 2019 from 6-10 PM. It will feature 100% handmade and local artists and food vendors. You won’t want to miss it!
