The road to business ownership is different for everyone. Christina Thompson didn’t set out in life to own a styling and accessory business, but life brought her here today! She is a local mom of three (girls ages 7 and 5, and an almost 2 year old boy – it’s a bit crazy!) who loves shopping. Christina is originally from Houston, Texas, and has called Tampa home for the last 11 years. After attending Ole Miss (Hotty Toddy!), she worked in development for a non-profit for many years. She then was the Chief Recruitment Officer for Northwestern Mutual for 6 years before transitioning to being a stay at home mom to be more present with her family in 2013. Her story reads like many of ours!
Christina has always loved fashion, styling friends, and high quality items. She fell in love with the India Hicks brand this past year, and it has been the perfect fit to transition into this world, and she has so many big plans! She has built an incredible team from Tampa to Texas who are as skilled as she is in styling and supporting their clients! Her girls in Tampa are Amy Silver and Kim Carswell. They are one of a kind and can also help you find the perfect item!
When asked what she loves about India Hicks, Christina says, “It is very exclusive. I don't like to have the ‘it’ bag or same outfits as everyone else. An India Hicks girl appreciates craftsmanship and details. Our clients are women who stand apart in a crowd and recognize the beauty in our line. They enjoy discovering unusual things, not shopping where everyone else does. I find joy in finding that special piece for all of our special India Hicks girls!”
What is the India Hicks Line?
The India Hicks collections of bags, beauty and accessories are crafted with the highest attention to detail, in partnership with some of the best workshops and factories in the world. What sets each item apart is that each one carries its own story. The Ambassadors share these stories at events called Get Togethers, where they do just that, with friends old and new, building a strong, solid business, without having to ever go to an office again.
Their exclusive collections of well-crafted gifts, beauty, bags and accessories are designed by India and made with world-class design partners. The collections are inspired by India's British heritage, island life, and madcap daydreams, and every piece has a story, so they're perfect for sharing. They release new products every couple of months, so there will always be something new to keep their customers interested.
They call these collections "attainable luxury." Our prices range from $16-$480, and over half of the collection falls under $100. The Ambassadors are proud to be able to offer these price points on beautifully crafted products. It helps that sales are done from the home - once a customer sees and feels the quality in person, they understand the value of what they're getting.
How to Shop
Christina is very active with local events. You can find her hosting pop-up shops around Tampa, at markets, and in homes, and she loves to meet new people. To experience your own personal shopping service, contact Christina directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also shop the India Hicks Collection at www.indiahicks.com/rep/christinathompson.
Christina will also be at our Holiday Kickoff Networking Social at Bulla Gastrobar on Nov. 29! Stop by her table to view a selection of her India Hicks collection!
Our spotlight charity for our Holiday event is a local non-profit called Created. Created Tampa is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian organization committed to the restoration of vulnerable women involved in the sex industry to an understanding of their value, beauty, and destiny in Jesus Christ.
Created Tampa advocates for and empowers women to express themselves. They do this through advocacy, offering life skills and partnership with other organizations in order to be a voice for change in the lives of sexually and relationally broken women and the systems that keep them bound to sexual exploitation.
They provide apartments for Created alumni to move into after they've completed the program. Created Tampa provides cleaning jobs and work at our Created Boutique thrift store. You can shop for a cause at their thrift store at 3102 N Nebraska Ave, Tampa, FL. Their store hours may vary, so please call ahead at 813-228-9412.
One of the unique efforts of the Created organization is their outreach. They go into the strip clubs, on the streets, and in the jails with the goal of befriending vulnerable women. The goal of outreach is to love women we're they're at. Their approach is unconditional love. They go into the dark places with gifts for the women, in hopes that we can redeem their past, broken experiences with The Church. It is common for us to here women say, "Wow, I can not believe a church lady is inside of this club talking to me. I can't believe you all care about us enough to come each month with gifts. Why are you so loving? Why do you do this?" This is music to their ears. Their approach is simple, it is consistent love.
Created Tampa has many opportunities for others to be involved in their work. They have Outreach and Volunteer positions available (see their website). Also, they always welcome donations of items to bring to the women they are working with. Examples include gift cards, toiletries, and other beauty items such as makeup or nail polish. We will be collecting donations at our Nov. 29 Holiday Kickoff at Bulla Gastrobar.
The holiday season is upon us, and we've compiled a list of amazing local businesses to help you fulfill your shopping list this year. You will find boutiques, salons, spas, children's products, handmade designs, and more!
The holidays are quickly approaching, and personalized gifts are a great way to make an ordinary gift, extraordinary! Lou specializes in creating custom hand-lettered designs on wood, canvas, chalkboards, print, and other media for your home, business, or special event. Let her help make your vision come to life.
