The Lighthouse District invites the New Monterey community to come together in solidarity to support Kim Lawson, the sole owner and operator of Fashion Trade Boutique at 554 Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey.
Kim recently had open heart surgery after the onset of several heart attacks attributed to a rare heart condition. We encourage you to contribute whatever you can to Kim's GoFundMe campaign. Every donation makes a difference to Kim while she recovers at home under doctor's orders and attempts to keep her little boutique afloat during that time.
The objective is to alleviate the financial burden to enable Kim to solely concentrate on her health and wellness during this serious medical crisis.
Kim is a compassionate and vibrant soul who welcomes you with her warm, engaging smile. She is an inspiring businesswoman who poured her heart and soul into creating something special: a vintage store for all genders called Fashion Trade. Her resilience as an entrepreneur mirrors her strength in facing her health challenges.
But what truly sets Kim apart is her unwavering kindness toward others. Her genuine warmth and cheerful spirit shine through from the minute you step into her shop, or you meet her by chance on the avenue.
Kim is the first to lend a helping hand, being the one who listens when others need support, and she extends her caring hand beyond her business. Renowned for her dedication to community service, she actively volunteers and has orchestrated many events to make a positive impact on others. She is a member of several service-oriented organizations including the Rotary Club of Carmel Valley. She is also a veteran of the U.S. Army.
