PUTTING HEART INTO BUSINESS
The Mason Jar Monroe started in the kitchen of two home town girls, Courtney and Lori, during an intense hair coloring session. It went from a thrown-around idea to reality in an amazingly short time. The two sisters, now Courtney DeLallo and Lori Miller, are Masuk High School graduates and the youngest in a family of six girls. The impetus for their going into business was “growing up in a small town in need of a trendy boutique” according to the duo.
“ We hand pick each and every item that we sell and try our hardest to support local and Made/Designed in the USA products,” said Lori. “And,” added Courtney, “You’re always guaranteed to see one of our faces in the shop, along with our mom who helps us out every single day.”
The sisters who run The Mason Jar donated more than $2,000 worth of new apparel last year to safe-house clients protected by the Center for Family Justice which serves Monroe and many other Fairfield County families. Every month they showcase a different worthy cause on their website.
Their trendy country boutique featuring women’s clothing, shoes, accessories, and home goods is wedged between a veterinarian and The Tavern, a popular eatery, in a tiny strip of stores on Rte. 25. Blink and you might miss it and a unique shopping experience.
