Hey y'all! I am Carissa Ferguson. Married to my ornery high school sweetheart, Steven. We both graduated from Elk City and it has always been home. We have three fur babies who are more spoiled than I would like to admit. I enjoy football, family, naps, the golden girls, the show cops, lemonade, sports, shoes & shopping!
So here is a little of my back story...
The Backdoor Boutique is located downtown Elk City which is a dream come true for me. I grew up around business due to my family owning a few. From Words Radiator & Steve Thomas Plumbing to coffee shop/snocone stand & daycare. I always knew I wanted to own a store of my own, I guess you could say it's in my blood.
I always put off the idea of actually pursuing that dream. Thinking yeah right, it's not going to happen. Maybe SOME day...
From September 2013 to April of 2014 I lost two of my grandpas to tragic events. I'm not asking for anyone to feel sorry for me, so just hear me out... Any loss will make you think about your life but two...lets just say I did some serious thinking & praying. Over the next year I searched and searched for a outlet, something I enjoyed doing to keep me busy. I was comfortable at the job I had but something was missing. I was happy but not happy. You know what I mean. The idea of opening a store came to mind a couple of times but I quickly blew it off. I knew something was missing and I knew deep down what that something was.
In September 2015 I decided I was going to start a online store. Yes, TBB was going to only be online, but then a building downtown came available and everything started to fall into place. In January 2016 we decided to go big or go home with the "you never know until you try mindset". In February 2016 we opened the doors and The Backdoor Boutique was officially born!
Moral of the story, if you have a dream go for it. Make that someday today. Because of all of you, I get to go to "work" everyday and for that I am so appreciative.
I want to THANK each and every one of you who support my family and this "little" dream. I greatly appreciate your business!!❤️❤️
