Sandy Deli said she envisions her Round Rock boutique as a one-stop-shop for women seeking to freshen their look; beautify their homes; or find the perfect, unique gift.
What began in 2008 as a hobby—a pottery and outdoor furnishing store open only on the weekends—is now a multifaceted shop offering home decor, jewelry, clothing, gifts and more.
“We want to make women feel pretty,” Deli said. “It’s kind of a women’s oasis, if you will.”
A former medical sales representative, Deli decided to transform her pottery store into Mays Street Boutique and manage it full-time in 2013, she said.
Deli said the boutique’s highlights include the variety of inventory and the personal attention given to each customer.
“We are so hands-on with our customers, and they love that,” she said. “We’re like their personal shopper, their personal stylist.”
Deli said Mays Street Boutique has grown every year and turned a profit from the beginning—something she attributes to her partnership with jewelry designer Kendra Scott. The women’s clothing section alone has undergone two renovations, and Deli said she is constantly thinking of new ways to diversify.
This spring Deli is launching a custom furniture line in partnership with a local carpenter and also hopes to open a two-station hair salon inside the shop by the end of the year, she said. Deli said she also hopes to continue developing the boutique’s charity counterpart, Mays Street Charity, which supports wounded veterans.
Deli said she is sometimes asked by friends whether she misses working in the medical field but said she has never doubted the decision to dedicate herself to establishing and expanding Mays Street Boutique.
“I’ve never looked back,” she said.
Mays Street Charity, in partnership with Texas Hunters for Heroes, will host an event to raise funds for two motorized wheelchairs, which will be donated to a veteran and a child, respectively. For updates about the event, visit www.facebook.com/maysstreetcharity.
