Small Talk with Teri

Meet Kara Kimber Brown, who lives in Pleasant Hill with her husband, Erik, and their children, Angelo and Bella. Kara owns Deja Vu, a consignment boutique in Pleasant Hill. Her favorite way to relax is to be out in nature, where she says, “I like to take pictures of clouds and the sunsets.”

How did you become a consignment boutique owner? I’ve always liked fashion and I’ve always consigned because I don’t believe in throwing anything away. I was looking for a place to consign and I came upon this store. I told the owner that I’ve always wanted to own a boutique and she said I could volunteer here. I volunteered for four months before the owner told me she was selling the store. So I took the risk and bought it. August was my one-year anniversary!

What are your favorite Christmas traditions? Every Christmas, my family and I go to San Francisco, go into all of the hotels and look at their decorations. We go to the smaller art galleries, see a play, and then go to dinner. We also go to Union Square and have someone take a picture of our family in front of the huge Christmas tree.
