As a first generation American, Muguette's parents, born in Indonesia and raised in Holland, came to the United States after World War II, survivors of Hitler's occupation of Holland. They came to this country to give their children more opportunity. The idea of owning her own shop has been Muguette's dream since she was a little girl. "Anything is possible with lots of hard work, inspiration and tenacity" she is quoted as saying. Her greatest joy was when her 90 year old parents and Stepmother visited the shop to see the fruits of her labor. "They said, they were proud of me, that's my bliss right there, that's it. My life is complete".
