1. Can you introduce yourself and Queens Boutique and Beauty Supply?

My name is Lakeisha DePeyster and I own this store with my daughter Briana DePeyster. I came from very humble beginnings, both of my parents were addicts, my mom was addicted to drugs and my dad alcohol not to mention abuse from family members. I was raised by my grandmother who was an amazing role model. My life wasn’t easy at all but I knew since I was a little girl that through all of the hard times I was destined for something great. I was the first grandchild to go to college and out of state at that but definitely not the last there is alot of now and also the first to own a brick and mortar business. My grandmother always told me that I could do anything if I just put my mind to it and that has stuck with me my whole life. I don’t believe in glass ceilings. I am also the first black female director at my other job. My daughter is a college graduate and a force to be reckoned with. She loves fashion and beauty so it made a great partnership for the two of us.

2. How was Queens Boutique and Beauty Supply born? How did you start?

I work in Commercial real estate as a director and I saw so many men with businesses and I always knew that I wanted my own business as well and I said to myself why not me. I was making other people money and investing in them but not myself. I had thought about what type of business would always be in demand and can withstand a recession. It took me a while to figure out but then I thought beauty is a billion dollar business why not do something along those lines. It took me a while but I came up with beauty supplies and clothes would be a great business to start, we are always grooming ourselves in one form or another. Once God gave me the vision I started doing a vision board and it just took off from there.
