Owner Christina Daly wanted her online store, The Wishing Trunk Boutique, to feel like the closet every girl wishes she had. “It’s the closet that Mr. Big gave you,” she smiles. Christina graduated from a local design school with her Bachelors degree in Marketing and Advertising. She then pursued a career in sales in various fields. With her thirst for knowledge she went back to school for her second Bachelor’s degree majoring in Life Biomedical Science and her minors in Health Science and Behavioral Science from the University of Central Florida in Orlando. During her college years she served and bartended at one of the most prestigious hotels. She always admired the fashion that would roam the halls of this elegant hotel. Her co-workers knew anytime a woman would walk by she knew every brand of every piece she was wearing. They found it amusing. She knew then she had a true obsession and appreciation for fashion. Of course being a college student there was no way to afford such trendy looks. She knew then she wanted to be a part of something that would bridge that gap of boutique clothing NOT at boutique pricing.
The idea of The Wishing Trunk was to have an inviting, laid back, and feminine feel. Somewhere you can receive great customer service, unique finds, and of course some good trend setting pieces. Here you’ll find fun, flirty, stylish, pieces that won’t break the bank. The key to shopping with us is if you see something you like grab it! Restocks are not always available and these pieces do sell out fast.
