We had the good fortune of connecting with Cecilia Navarro and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cecilia, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I took a risk on March 1, 2020 to open my brick and mortar not knowing that on March 17th, 2020 I would need to shut down my shop. On the same month of my grand opening it was devastating. We created online sales, small popup events with limited amounts of people and pushed through. I told myself I refuse to give up and fail. My nervous system took a huge hit but I found ways to be creative and still make sales. The DFW community supported us through it.
As long as we stay true, original and genuine the risk is worth the hardships that will come. It is a challenge to prove how bad do you want it?

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I love to create jewelry pieces that help remind the person wearing it that they have the power within. I also create macramé wall hangings that tell a story through its patterns. I curate vintage clothing to resell & inspire others to dive into their creativity through clothing.

I get excited when a customer walks in and loves what we’re doing at the shop as a collective. Our goal is to inspire others to follow their passions.

My passion started out with a DIY project for my daughter’s bedroom. I made her a dream catcher and then decided to try many other DIYs. That’s how I found my creative side.

On this entrepreneurial journey I’ve learned patience, how to work with others and how to put myself first. I can’t show up to inspire without taking pause and recharging.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take them for coffee at Race Street Coffee, go on a hike at Tandy Hills, vintage shop at Doc Records for a fun outfit to wear in the evening, grab pizza at Cane and Russo then get drinks at the Amber Room!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
The River East community accepted me into the street with open arms. I started out at a smaller test-drive location before moving into our current location. Everyone was supportive with me navigating the business and fitting into the community. We started doing popup events and workshops that helped introduce many more people to our creative community.
