Located at 233 South Main in Boerne Jackie and Amber Randolph opened Amber’s Closet in October 2020 with faith that leasing a storefront for their fabulous clothing and accessories would be a winning enterprise. So far, that faith has manifested in a wonderful shop offering a vast array of vintage and trendy clothing. You can find more information on Facebook.
Amber’s Closet is the result after a frustrating period of time once Amber aged out of the BISD special needs program in 2019 after graduating from Champion High School in 2017. No one in the area was hiring special needs associates.
Talented and experienced in the area of fashion, 23 year old Amber enjoys being the co-proprietor and arranging the displays to grab attention and offer a comfortable, roomy area in which to shop. She assesses the donations and determines if they are saleable or need to be donated elsewhere. Amber has an eye for quality clothing and accessories and it shows in the items offered for sale. “We are blessed to have many high-quality, like-new items donated on a regular basis. We are able to offer expensive name brands you’d find at Neiman’s or Saks for a quarter of the price,” explains Jackie.
We’ll see what the future holds for Amber; whether she uses her business experience to branch out in another venture or continue to keep Amber’s Closet open. Either way, Jackie is hoping that “Amber will be able to get work in the future.” Many parents with special needs adults are seeking the same assurances and have come to Jackie for advice. As we were conducting our interview, a young man came in to meet Amber and expressed his gratitude and congratulated her and Jackie for their venture. “So many times businesses overlook special needs people and the good they can provide in the world.”
