Janet Lucey has had a dream since she was a child, playing in her home in Ipswich Ma... it was to manage her own store.
To prepare herself for the day her dream would come true, she would set up her mother's ironing board across the doorway to her bedroom. She would then retrieve items from her mother’s pantry, and place them on the ironing board to “display” for her mother to “purchase”.
When she was old enough to venture from the stoop, she would walk to the downtown area and offer to clean the display cases of a local jewelry shop. She would pretend to be the store owner as she worked the Windex and rag.
As she grew, she took a great interest in home-made crafting. This was inevitable and destiny driven as her mother could create magnificent pieces of art out of the most obscure items. Janet participated in many Craft Fairs over the years…hoping it may quench her persistent thirst to venture off into her own shop. She would display her many various works in area shops with pride and enthusiasm. The prospect of her creations bringing joy to someone being the primary incentive, she would spend hours at her craft table.
Over the years since her childhood dream, Janet raised a family of three boys, maintained a warm and happy home, and achieved great things through her commitment as an Occupational Therapist. Janet also has a passion for researching and documenting her French ancestry. As a result of these efforts, she has developed a great pride and appreciation for French history and culture.
Just as she was able to sigh the breath of reflection…an opportunity presented itself that seemed to be a convergance of all Janet's dreams and passions. Babette and Karen, the founders of Deux Amis Boutique, and now dear friends of Janet, decided that they were ready to move onto their next adventure. They wanted to pass the boutique onto someone who would carry it into a promising future…they immediately thought of Janet.
With the enthusiasm of a child who’s dream has finally been realized, Janet has become the new owner of Duex Amis Boutique. She looks forward to sharing her passion of French culture, local arts, crafts, and fine gifts with all who grace the doorway of Deux Amis
