Tell us a little bit about yourself (family, interests, etc.):
My name is Vicki Ostrom and I live in Towner, ND with my husband Nic and our two daughters, Angie (13) and Melanie (11). I am fortunate to have found a part time business where I can make my own hours and still have time to spend with my family.
Tell us about your business:
Vault Denim sells overstock of true designer jeans. Absolutely no knock-offs or seconds and the jeans are all the latest styles you will see in stores and boutiques, just at a much better price (up to 50% off!). You can’t beat having 100+ pairs of jeans in your home with your friends. Guests can try on as many jeans as they want, get their friends’ opinions on the best fits, and leave with them that night. The jeans sell themselves and the best marketing tool is you wearing the jeans! In addition, we just launched MEN’S and GIRL’S lines, and MATERNITY!
How did your business get started?
My friend invited me to a “jeans” party last year and I’ve been hooked ever since!! I was able to try on all kinds of jeans and I ended up buying 3 pairs that night and bringing them home!
Do you have a favorite “brand” of jeans? Or style?
I really like the LA IDOL jeans
What is your favorite part about having your own business?
My favorite part about owning my own business is making my own hours and meeting new friends!
What is the hardest part?
The hardest part is finding enough room in my closet for all the cool jeans I get to buy! haha!
How has owning your own business changed your life? Or changed you personally?
Owning my own business has given me more time with my family.
Do your daughters LOVE having a mom that sells designer jeans?
Yes, my girls love that I own my own business and that they get to be my models at some of my parties
Where do you see your business in 5 years?
I see my business being very successful in the next 5 years and hopefully by then I can start travelling more with my husband and girls!
What do people need to know if they want to host a jean party or order jeans from you?
When people go to my website they can get more information on how to become a consultant and host a jean party.
