Founder & CEO
Hailing from North Dakota where her nearest shopping opportunity was over 300 miles away, Ashley Alderson longed for a place online to find and shop the boutiques she loved all over the country, together in one place.
“There must be a place for shoppers like me who love boutiques to find them all — and a place boutique owners themselves can connect to find resources & grow,” Ashley thought.
Ashley’s background in business, marketing, and economic development fueled the desire to simply make life easier for small businesses by providing them training, exclusive savings, events, and wholesale shopping, in one simple place. And all in the name of COMMUNITY over COMPETITION since 2013.
Today, The Boutique Hub & Shop The Best Boutiques are the central connection point for the retail industry, providing a daily membership packed with resources, live events, signature courses, wholesale shopping, daily networking and a consumer facing marketplace for boutiques.
Ashley is a wife, busy momma of 3, jewelry junkie, barrel racer, cancer survivor, basketball fan, speaker of sarcasm, and heart for those with a dream.

How did The Boutique Hub get started?
Get to know us even more on our YouTube Channel to watch behind the scenes at past events, find tips and trainings, and get to know our community.
If you sell wholesale goods to boutique retailers, we’d love to meet you! We are looking for brands with great reputations, that have been in business for at least 2 months’ time with the quality of their products tested so boutiques know what to expect! We take a firm stance against copy cat brands, so your original creativity should shine. Specifically, if you will ‘make anything’ for customers based on a google photo likely belonging to someone else….we’re not your community.
We get MANY requests to be a vetted service provider of the Hub, but are highly selective in who we partner with. Integrity, months in business, unique services or products, and proven track record are all considered in our terms of service. If you have an app, service, or tool for retailers, apply so we can get to know you and see if we’d be a match made in heaven.
We create new tips and trainings almost daily! We put all of these in our member’s training library, our blog, podcast, groups, and we’ll email you each week with updates! Want to see a training we haven’t created yet? Just ask!
We get it, life happens! You can cancel your monthly membership at any time! If you have an annual membership (which saves you $), you can cancel at that time, anything sooner will remove you from the community at that time. But remember, any discounts you have as a Hub member become void with industry service providers when membership is canceled!
A PEEK INSIDE OF OUR COMMUNITY
We connect the global boutique industry, so that boutique owners, wholesale brands and service providers can connect, collaborate, find the products, the education, the networking and the big picture vision they need to succeed.
