Around 30 years ago in a little town of Kitchener, Ontario, a woman named Judy lived happily as a wife to her husband and a mother to her two young daughters. Even though she was content, she longed for more. So she began thinking of ways to provide more for her family. Judy always had a passion for fashion and she adored wearing accessories, so she thought to herself, “Why not sell to boutiques in Kitchener-Waterloo?” Judy bought a big, black leather handheld carrying case and filled it with all of her accessories that she had purchased from a wholesaler in Toronto. Judy began going from boutique to boutique in hopes that by 5 o’clock her carrying case would be empty. Eventually, she began to venture out of her city; one carrying case grew into two, her home basement grew into a showroom, and her showroom grew into a warehouse.
2016 — Judy and John are at the helm of Red Coral, and together with their family and family-in-law (our staff members!) we are proud to provide beautiful items for women of all ages.
As we launch our new website, our new blog and our new look, in our hearts we remain the same, we’re just women who love fashion.
And so, every year as we attend our trade shows, we still use that black leather carrying case to remind us of how far we’ve come, and to always be grateful for all the blessings we have.
This blog is a new creation for us. We’ve created it just for you! Our Red Coral lady- she’s happy, she’s curious, and she’s a lot of fun! We hope this blog is a place where you can escape and share a few smiles with us, and if we’re really lucky, a few belly laughs!
So tell us about yourself-what do you like to read about? Who are your fashion icons? What are your favourite cities to shop in? Got any good (clean!) jokes?
Thank you for being a part of our journey. We hope you’ll enjoy your stay!
