Brenda Thomas

Owner & Founder

Whether we realize it or not, some of the choices we make can leave a lasting impact, affecting us in more ways than one. That is exactly what Brenda Thomas had in mind when she came up with the name for her boutique, Choices & More, while on a girls’ trip. And it was years before her dream became a reality, still believing the choices you make follow you and reflect who you are. The Spring Branch store offers just that—numerous options in apparel, jewelry, and home décor—and has been a reliable staple for both Spring Branch residents and visitors. With the success she has experienced, one would think she holds extensive experience in the retail field, but she admitted working in retail was totally new to her when she decided to open her store after having spent 23 years in administrative work. 
 
It was in 2008 when she opened the small boutique with her older sister, Katie Judd, who had always wanted to open a store as well; and who Brenda convinced to move down to Texas from Minnesota to do so. Several years and a location change later, Brenda decided it was time to seize the opportunity to build her own space from the ground up if her business was to continue to grow, and it didn’t hurt that she also loved what she was doing.
