Our History

Sarah's "Poppie," with his always favorite 'Bubba Cola'and El Camino Super-sport.
It all started on a late, crisp March night in 2014. Sarah sat in her bedroom floor after reflecting the passing of her favorite man, her grandfather, "Poppie," and a whirlwind of inspiration was in the air. She had always loved to make things, learning to sew at the young age of four, so she dared to create a Facebook page named for one of her favorite people. At that moment began "Poppie's Boutique." Sarah was completely humbled a month later when her Facebook page reached over 500 likes, and she was beginning to recieve some home trunk show and small craft show invites. Sarah was only 19 then.
      Some two years later, Poppie's became an exciting venture for her and her husband, Hunter. They are both college students, Sarah studying to become a teacher, and Hunter (behind the business scene of Poppie's) majoring in accounting. Though their schedules are filled with many church, school, and married duties, Poppie's had become a passion for them both. Poppie's has gone from small craft shows to huge barn sales. They are now featured in three stores around the Upper Cumberland area, transformed their 10'x10' tent set-up into an airstream boutique, and have also opened a Storefront "World Headquarters" location in Smithville, and two additional locations in McMinnville and Lebanon.
​      Hunter and Sarah  hope and pray that each customer, visitor, and friend of Poppie's feels the love of Christ through our products, passion, and attitude. They are truly appreciative of all fans, customers, and to our Maker who continually blesses them and the business in so many ways.

 

The legacy of "Poppie" surely does live on! ​
