Jayna Derby Thompson,
Even from a very young age, Jayna knew she wanted to own a clothing store.
When friends would come over to play, Jayna would take out her adding machine
and receipt paper and "ring them up". It was her favorite game! She grew up in Alpharetta, attending Milton High School. She
then attended Georgia Tech where she earned a B.S. in Business
Management, graduating with highest honors. She is married to her wonderful husband,
Chad, and they welcomed their first child, a daughter named Brianna
Grace, on January 1st, 2011. Jayna is so grateful her dream came true and truly enjoys running Alexis' Suitcase.
Carlye Derby Thompson, Shop Dog
email Carlye, she can't read!
Carlye was born on a farm in Bowden, GA. She was the smallest
of a household of more than 8 dogs. She had many litters of
puppies and was never spade. When she was around 3 years old,
she began getting bullied by the other dogs on the farm. The
family took her to the vet to get stitched up for the third time in
as many months and decided they couldn't keep her. The vet put
her up for adoption on
Petfinder.com. Jayna was searching for
a condo suitable pet and found Carlye. She fell in love at
first site! When Jayna adopted Carlye she had heartworms and
was skin and bones! She is the most loving, amazing dog!
She is often at one of the shops when Jayna is there and would love
to meet you!
