Street Style: Janet Kim

I met Janet within the first week of buying Kiskadee. She’s been a long-time customer of ours…long before I even came along. I’m so grateful for her steadfast loyalty! She is such a joy to work with as she’s always willing to try something new, or perhaps out of her comfort zone. She has a constant smile on her face and has such a positive attitude about life. We just love her and we know you will too!
