growing up in a family of shop owners I know from a very young age that I wanted to sell things to people, make them feel good.
After graduating I travelled the world for a few years, first as an au-pair, then as a stewardess long haul. After taking on 2 jobs in the optical world and a very nice carreer in fashion I gathered enough inspiration and knowledge about the retail scene.
Because I regretted there wasn't a nice mid end gift shop in our area, I didn't hesitate when I found this really nice vacant shop on the corner of my street.
From then on things went really fast, and I consider it an honor to run my 'Futur' in my beloved hometown, Mariaburg, where I was born and raised.
The greatest thing about my job is meeting 4 different generations of customers and the heartwarming feedback that people loved their, carefully selected gifts.
Futur Conceptstore is a feel-good-shop where you can stroll around, discover nice gifts, and great items for your personal appearance or your home, for any budget.
I'm always on the lookout for new, start up brands, which you don't find on every corner of the street, I tend to work with other 'mompreneurs' or talented youn ladies, because I strongly believe we should support eachother, and build our 'FUTUR' together.
Besides a few commercial brands s.a. Bloomingville, House Doctor - Meraki - Nicholas Vahé, Beck Söndergaard, Nutcase, Estella Bartlett, My Jewellery, DOIY, ...
a ot of our brands are local: ONE80, B-Jewels, Sens Collection, Your Prana, Anne Zellien, Mad About Mats, Play & Go, Komono, A Little Lamp Company, Papette, Stratier, vANTstad, Enfant Terrible, Tiny Magic, Kleir, ..
The name Futur is also related to a bar called 'de toekomst' (the future) which was located here and the future I want to build for my family.
I hope you'll feel inspired, I'm always open to new suggestions and feedback.
Hope to see you soon!
Kind regards, Joke
