Rebuild Juanita's Ferguson Boutique
Click here to see our CNN interview with Anderson Cooper.
Hello everyone, I’m Juanita Morris, owner and operator of Fashions R Boutique, located at 9844 W. Florissant Ave. in Ferguson, Missouri.
Fashions R was the largest women’s boutique in the St. Louis area. We offered the latest fashions in handbags, accessories, dresses, shoes, hats, and so much more.
After 28 years in business, my shop was burned down on the night of Monday, November 24th during the Ferguson unrest. The fire resulted in a total loss of the building and all of its contents.
However, I am not discouraged by these events. My spirits remain very high. No lives were lost and no one was injured in the fire, which was a great blessing.
Fashion has been a lifelong passion of mine, and I have worked very hard over the years to make my boutique successful. Right now I am working hard contacting customers, handling paperwork, and trying to rebuild my business.
The process of rebuilding will be long and difficult, but we will continue to serve Ferguson, Dellwood, and the surrounding community.
May God bless everyone for their kind words, prayers, and donations!
UPDATE: We're still working hard catching up with customers, taking calls, and preparing to rebuild!
In the meantime, we are working on refilling our inventories to open an online store... Hopefully we will have it running by the end of the week!

GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!
THERE IS STILL LOVE IN THE WORLD!
I have fundraiser on her for a mother of 7 in nerd of help for christmas but teally she is about ro be put into the stteets with no where to go she is disabled she really needs help could someone please tell me how to help her raise money she please and thank youposted
I would probably change locations if I were you. Fully support rebuilding businesses in the area, but the people of that area have shown how much they care about their community. It's like people who continue to rebuild in areas that get hit by hurricanes every year... Just doesn't make much sense.
Hello Junita. My name is Jeniece. I am a business owner of Hidden Treasures in Ferguson, Mo. I am so sorry to her that your place was totally destroyed. Your place was a landmark and a sense of pride for our community. I shopped in your store and have met you before I was a business owner. I just want to say admired and celebrate you as woman business owner. Your strength is encouraging. Be strong. I pray God bless you with double and better. Go get your blessing!
May God continue to bless you ms. Juanita. There's this homless ex radio announcer that has a go fund that could use some help. My email firstname.lastname@example.org thanks
I just had to come in and say "yippee" and "wahoo" - I am so thrilled for your business and that you met your goal!
Sending you my best wishes for a wonderful future.
My heart goes out to you-- I also own a small fashion business and when I heard what happened, I immediately thought that it could happen to anyone. I know you will come out of this stronger. Best wishes for more success than you have ever known before.
Lovely Juanita is less than $100 from reaching her goal - would you like to be the donor who helps put her over the top?
People have given where their hearts were touched. So grateful for the joyous givers of all of the Ferguson need funds. May God be with you all.
Amen. Why is it human nature to seek, associate and over give to the most popular causes and not the ones with the most need?
Hopefully natalie the cake lady will repair her broken window and then share her sudden wealth with the rest of the business owners who suffered the greatest loses.
You and Bertha both looked so lovely when you were on CNN. I loved what both of you were wearing. You are needed. I for one am looking forward to your online store.
Angela Flanders, I have never heard that before. It is beautiful! And perfectly fitting.
Out of these ashes, beauty WILL rise!! And we will dance among the ruins, we will see Him with our own eyes. I can almost feel the hand of God reaching for my face - To wipe the tears away, and say, "It's time to make everything new." "Make it all new!!" This is our hope. This is the promise.
Thank you love. XOXO N.
