Bargain Babe Boutique is an online and mobile clothing retailer home to brand name designs and fashion available for dirtcheap prices. Owner, Jacie Fournier, is an Atascosa County local who grew up in the Rossville Community, attended Leming Elementary and graduated from Jourdanton High School in 2016. She started this business with the hopes of bringing affordable fashion to her community.
Fournier and Bargain Babe Boutique’s Business Assistant, Erin Hamby, ventured out on this journey in March right before the COVID-19 pandemic. They were able to build their business using social media platforms and free delivery services.
The mission of Bargain Babe Boutique is to give second-hand clothing items a second chance. “I have higher-end brand name clothes, made very well, but are priced very cheap. The most expensive item we have is $40,” stated Fournier. All the Bargain Babe merchandise is purchased from small resale shops or donated to them.
Fournier highlighted, “Lately, we have actually had people donate to us. We appreciate that so much for multiple reasons. One, we love giving back and making connections. Two, it helps prevent those articles of clothing from landing in a landfill.”
Bargain Babe services and delivers anywhere in Atascosa County for free. They also offer free delivery for residents in San Marcos, customers south of Austin and in San Antonio. Fournier explained that their goal is to really become a mobile boutique that can service customers and communities all over Texas.
The Bargain Babe Boutique Team consists of Fournier, Hamby and, of course, Fournier’s lovely daughter Eloise, or the “Mini Babe.” Eloise is a special part of their team and motivation, and she is their supervisor and quality-control girl.
This business does their best to showcase their items to customers in person through local pop-up shops. Fournier explained that they really love getting to build relationships with people, tell customers about their clothes, showcase the quality of their merchandise and support other small business by participating in their popup shops.
Bargain Babe Boutique welcomes all donations. Fournier highlighted that they would much rather receive clothes, pick the items they want to showcase and donate the rest.
