Her store has a comfortable ambiance and is located on the first floor of her home.

She is very satisfied since in running her business she has managed to make friends and to become very well-known in the area.

She wishes to re-supply her business and buy products at wholesale that are in high demand by her customers. This will allow her to obtain better prices and to keep her business going.
