Cincinnati is no stranger to mobile
vendors, but Ashley Volbrecht’s Truckshop, a newly opened mobile fashion
boutique, is the first of its kind in the Midwest. The shop, originally
a bread delivery truck, has been transformed into a retail shopper’s
paradise, complete with dresses, tops and jewelry at reasonable prices.
NVISION, Emily Buddendeck's quirky venture at
4577 Hamilton Ave. in Northside, has grown steadily during its
four-and-a-half years of existence. “I opened on Leap Day of Leap year, Feb.
29, 2008. The day seemed appropriate because the shop was even more of a
leap during a recession, but it really merged the various things I had
been doing, career-wise,” she says.
