The Lace Cactus originally was opened in October of 2012. I was a stay at home mother to our daughter Aubrey with my son Benjamin on the way. I wanted to help contribute to our family financially. I originally started out making custom home décor and hand making every thing that was sold.
We did not have the money to spare for me to start out a business so I had to work for it. I decided to start a Facebook page for the business. I posted some of my custom pieces and within a week I had a 1000 followers. It took off over night.
February of 2014, I found a building downtown Hico. This was where I had always dreamed of running my business and it was finally falling into place. We were at 50,000 Facebook fans and business was better than ever! We had almost 200 Lace Cactus gals arrive for our grand opening and the store started off with an unbelievable start.
Fast forward three years, winning Global Overall, Texas Overall and Texas Online Boutique in the 2017 Boutique Hub awards. The Lace Cactus is no longer hand painted signs in my garage. With over half a million online followers and the reputation of some of the most loyal customers in the industry, we have grown to one of the most well known boutiques in the nation.
We are ranked number 7 in the nation for USPS output. Shipping hundreds of retail items across the globe daily. The Lace Cactus is a true family run business.. My mother pulling every package, grandmother folding every item, and sister shipping every order. We have an additional staff of amazing girls that help this business run.
