Some items for sale. Monica and Sarah have GREAT taste.
The store’s name The Sow’s Ear was inspired by a favorite saying of Monica’s Irish grandmother. The expression goes, “You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear,” meaning that you cannot turn something ugly or inferior into something attractive or of value. The phrase always stuck with Monica, and they needed a name for the space that would house their repurposed treasures, it made perfect sense.
Sarah and Monica love being in downtown Glastonbury and appreciate having the support of the local community and surrounding shops. “We are thrilled to be located in an area that is not only growing, but also has reputable established businesses. We’re not in competition with anyone. We want everyone to be successful!”
However, that doesn’t mean that running their own business is easy. Sarah and Monica keep their sanity by making time for exercise, leaning on the support of their friends and family, and being mindfully present. When they are at the store they focus on the store and when they’re at home they focus on being at home.
One workout Sarah enjoys is Pilates. She has been going to Glastonbury Parks and Recreation for years loves that the classes are close by and affordable. She enjoyed going to morning classes, and even though some days she wakes up and wants to stay in her pajamas, once she leaves class she’s so glad she went!
