Mindy Maiwald Compton has always believed in the importance of putting family before one’s career. Then again, instead of choosing between the two, Mindy has always found a way to combine them.
When Mindy heard Willow Tree Children’s Clothing Boutique was on the market, she decided to capitalize on the opportunity. And she knew just the person to help her.
“My mom and I have worked together for years, and she has accounting experience, I have a degree in child development and have worked the last 8 years in retail. So, it was just a perfect marriage of those things.”
In June 2018, Mindy and her mother, Jan Campbell, bought the boutique and in July, moved the store to its current School Street location in downtown Lodi.
“I wanted to have a career where I could be a mom first. Something where I could still hang out with my daughter and make her my priority.” –Mindy
Together, Mindy and her mom have curated some of the best children’s clothing and accessories, with shelves and clothing racks boasting high-quality items and lines such as Mayoral from Spain, ultra-soft KicKee pajama pants made from bamboo, Little Giraffe throws, Copper Pearl blankets, and so much more.
Besides high-quality clothes, blankets and toys, the boutique also offers a variety of other things such as cookie baking classes, tea parties, doula classes as well as a safe and comfortable place for mom’s to breastfeed of pump if they are out and about in downtown Lodi.
Downtown Lodi is such a great destination. We hope to make it more family-friendly.”
