The Sassy Bee Story

Great things happen on the tennis court! Friends are made, dreams are shared and the plans are formulated…all while we are supposed to be keeping our eye on the ball!

In early 2011, Cassie left her “real” job as a marketing executive and launched For The Love, an online ladies boutique offering tennis apparel, bags and gifts. After a summer of setting up displays at tennis events around Richmond and being repeatedly asked “where is your store?”, Cassie decided it was time to setup shop and offer For The Love items in a retail store on the Southside.

Because all things are more fun with friends, a team of girls came together to help bring the new store to life. Cassie teamed up with Kim Mayes to kick start the project. Later the group grew to include Susanne Bauduc, Angie Strickland, Susan Cheatham, Lee Ann Falvo and Kim’s mom Donna Blair as the core group working together to launch the store.

As plans began to formulate, the team realized that it wasn’t just a tennis store that was missing from the Midlothian area. Midlo ladies were asking for more. They wanted a gift store where they could run in, always find something special and walk out with it wrapped and ready to give. They were missing having a stationery shop and place to have their items monogrammed without driving across town. So, Sassy Bee was born, a unique shop filled with beautiful things for life and play. We hope you will enjoy shopping with us!
