Why Not Make a Dream Come True?By Rachel PughTheWeekender.com

Scranton, PA – Angela Dawn Sheehan served as a nurse for more than 22 years in the U.S. Air Force. In 1993, the Arkansas native moved to Northeast Pennsylvania where she continued to practice nursing.

But early in 2011, Sheehan realized she needed a change. With a love and Southern-flare for fashion, she knew she could do something she’s always wanted to do: Open a boutique. And that’s just what she did. Why Not Designs in Scranton is a dream come true for Sheehan and local fashionistas alike. A unique women’s boutique, Why Not Designs offers eclectic accessories including handbags, scarves, costume and sterling silver jewelry, handmade headbands, bath products and candles.

Sheehan’s goal for 2012 is to carry only products made in the United States. Already carrying locally made products such as home and bath lines from Danielle and Company, Sheehan also offers products from Stephanie Dawn (the designer who took over the Ohio factory that previously manufactured Vera Bradley), Funky Junque, Angie Dresses, bow bags, and J*Flops, a flip-flop company that does custom orders for special events such as weddings, and her own line of accessories. A fresh new line by Melie Bianco will soon be added to her stock.
