Brittany Bauman grew up in The Wedding Shoppe, and ever since has developed a passion for entrepreneurship and design.  She always hoped to one day follow her mom's footsteps.  After Brittany graduated from Gonzaga University May of 2017, she came home to bring a little more of her vision to the store.  Brittany's youthful twist brings some of the best merchandise that one can't find anywhere else.  She prides herself on finding small companies to grow with, whether it be greeting card, purse, or fragrance companies.  The merchandise Brittany picks out appeals to a sophisticated young adult, but also to any with incredibly good taste.
