OWNER SHARES ABOUT HER PASSION PROJECT LOCATED IN LISLE
LISLE–Autumn is a Lisle resident of 30 years, an active Lisle Township Trustee, mother of three, and self-proclaimed “queen of connecting the dots”, gathering friends and family over her almost-famous gumbo. As the owner of The Collective LHE + Makery, Autumn has worn many hats, and lived a life full of experiences.
“I wanted to create a space where you could shop inspired and create in community,” she says. “This was initially inspired by the book The Red Tent. In biblical times, women would go to the red tent for birthing, illness, etc., and the other women would take care of them. Regardless of the strife that may exist outside of the tent, inside you were sisters. When people come in the first time, they never leave a stranger. It's just the energy of the shop that “feels” different from other retail shops.”
Her mission is to have you shop inspired and create in community. Autumn’s lifestyle boutique features goods that touch all aspects of life with a commitment to woman owned brands, hosting live interactive events, and providing space to small makers and products that give back to charitable causes, such as The Sharing Connections.
The Collective LHE & Makery is her first brick and mortar business bringing her love of creating experiences, event planning and curating beautiful apparel, home decor and gifts into a creative space. Trending for 2023 are semi precious gemstone earring and beaded jewelry, kimonos, graphic tees, custom and personalized wood trays, the Soit La lumiere candle club, and custom curated gift boxes, with the added bonus of free local delivery.
