Mobile Boutique Drives Into Morgantown. Amy Skeens April 28, 2017 Looking to get everything you need for your summer music festivals? Fernweh Mobile Boutique has you covered! Serving the greater Morgantown and Preston County areas, this new shop-on-wheels is delivering Boho-Chic finds in style. Fernweh takes “shop local” pretty literally. You can’t get more local than having the store come to you. Preston County natives Moriah Peddicord, Miranda Peddicord, and Chelsey Greaser are the female entrepreneurs behind the venture. The name Fernweh is a German word meaning “an ache for distant places”. The owners felt like this idea of wanderlust was perfect for their business. In addition to the witty play on words (I mean, you get it, right? MOBILE Boutique? Need to travel? Clever, girls.) the notion of a life of adventure resonated with the businesswomen. “It really fits with us trying to make this big change in our lives with trying something new and making the leap to follow our dreams.” Moriah added. The truck, affectionately named Franny, was designed by the trio. “We think Morgantown and the surrounding areas are ready for this type of business because there is nothing quite like this in town,” Miranda said. “Since we are mobile, we are able to reach different places and people in various peak times of the year to maximize our reach to the community.” Inside, you’d barely remember you’re in a truck. Racks of unique merchandise line the reclaimed wood walls, and there is even a fitting room! The boutique offers clothing, accessories, and jewelry, but intends to be a one-stop-shop for all your festival needs right down to the tapestries and blankets. They’re looking to expand to oils, salt-lamps, and other products to support your sense of zen. The modern, industrial shop offers distinct items that are friendly to your wallet. Most items are even under a budget-savvy $30. “We are not your typical boutique. We hand pick all our inventory at local thrift stores around the area, and we really try to be conscious of different styles and size variety. We love the fact that we are able to find awesome pieces, give them new life, and bring those pieces to our shoppers.” Chelsey said. Miranda Peddicord poses inside the Fernweh Mobile Boutique. Fernweh will host its Grand Opening on May 5th & 6th at the Cheat River Festival. The ladies plan to be at lots of major events this summer, but you can also contact them about bringing the party to you. The boutique offers bookings for your own private party, so you can even host Fernweh for your next girls day! The staff will work with you to create an experience catered to your party. To book a visit from Franny the Fernweh Bus for your event, just reach out via email to email@example.com. You can follow (or in this case: track) the boutique on Instagram and Facebook.
