Some of my favorite shops are miles away. In some case, thousands of miles away. But, I’ve just discovered an amazing way to stay in touch and aware of when they receive new shipments.
House Account, developed by Laura Vinroot Poole, owner of the high end women’s boutique, Capitol & it’s more casual little sister, Poole Shop and her childhood friend, Travis Parsons, is my new favorite app.
It’s like a souped up Instagram. You select from a growing number of boutiques (currently 350) and then get a feed with their updates. See something you like? Send a message to the shop and they’ll respond. That’s where the personal touch comes in.
