About Us

Well, hello darling.

My name is Bobbie Eskdale & I am the #BoutiqueBoss here at Bold & Brassy Boutique.

Like you, I am (cue background music) "just a small town girl living in a lonely world".... sorry, I just had too.

My roots run deep in a Northern Alberta town known as Grande Prairie. Also known as, "Why do I live where the air hurts my face 8 months of the year". Ya, that place. It's a vibrant community full of grit, entrepreneurial spirit & the hardest working, most passionate folks I have ever met.

If you have dreams and a get down to business & hustle hard attitude, there is so much opportunity for you in this diverse & abundant community.

 Bold & Brassy Family 2019

This is my family, who I'm very smitten over - otherwise known as "My Why".

 

I started this business in November, 2015 when I launched my online store!

I wish I could tell you it comes from a place of loving fashion (although I do) & always being on freaking point with my outfits (but that would be a flat out lie) but truly, it comes from a place wanting to do more for my family. I'm a visionary, eager to try things, not afraid of failure and a hard worker so working 9-5 building someone else's dream just doesn't cut it for me.  For 4 years I operated out of my basement, packaging online orders, going to the post office regularly & bringing my vision to life by attending trade shows & hosting my own pop up shop events! It's super cool to collaborate with other local small business owners and work together. That is truly where my heart explodes! 

My customers started asking where my store was located, and asking when & if I was ever going to open a storefront. Initially the thought was NO, never. I couldn't see how I would be able to be a mom, a wife, a chauffeur, and everything else that life sends your way AND run a business with staff & payroll and and and. The more I popped up in the community the more I fell in love with the idea of serving these people in a way that they wanted and a way that I could creatively be immersed in this community. My business was organically heading in a direction I never imagined it would. The best business advice I ever heard was be willing to take your business where it wants to go, whether it was part of your plan or not.

So here we are, 4 years into this part time boutique I run out of my basement so I could stay home and raise my wild little babies and we are opening our doors to the Grande Prairie community in December 2019! It's been a wild and exciting journey from A to B and beyond! I'm so excited to be sharing a little piece of my entrepreneurial journey with you. I've got big plans for Bold & Brassy both online & offline so stay tuned!

I hand pick EVERY. SINGLE. PIECE that enters the Bold & Brassy headquarters. There is a piece of my personality in everything we carry.

I am committed to rollin’ up my sleeves, getting to work and offering you my very best! One thing I know for sure is that I want my friends & family to feel their very best. Whether you are shopping our website or visit the store, your experience is the most important thing to me.

So make today different. Get up, dress up and show up with confidence. Bold & Brassy Boutique has got your back!
