Hola! Hello! Bienvenido! Welcome! Mucho Gusto! Nice to meet you!
Hola! I’m Angelique (Gonzalez) Sloan! - Founder of Shopmucho! I’m a proud graduate from Memphis College Of Art with a Bachelor Of Fine Arts In Digital Media and Palomar College with an Associate Of Arts In Fashion Design.
With dreams of owning a unique boutique, I created my own version of a Mexican market inspired by my family’s Mexican background (dad’s side) mixed with festive boutique trends- and that is how ShopMucho was born!
ShopMucho aka Mucho /mooCHō/ is a very small business that embraces all makers, markets, and brands I love, big and small, with the main focus on Latinx owned as well as locally owned businesses and products. I am inspired by the Latino culture and styling it in a modern way. The goal of Mucho is to support many small businesses by offering a large collection of unique styles to the online community and locally to the Memphis, TN area, inside Primas Bakery and Boutique.
I love authentic, I love handmade, I love trends, and I love quirk.
I LOVE tacos!!!
I hope you love my little shop!
MUCHO equals love and A LOT of it!
Embracing Mexican Roots
Angelique (Gonzalez) Sloan, the founder of Mucho- I was born a Gonzalez in Fort Worth Texas. The traditions instilled in my Mexican-American upbringing inspire my love for the Mexican culture. My siblings and I were brought up all American but our father’s heritage made us feel kind of unique.
Special memories of growing up in Texas include: Spending time with family and friends in Dallas, Galveston, Houston, and San Antonio. Traveling to Memphis where my father’s family eventually settled and eating at my grandparent’s Tex-Mex restaurant, Lupe & Bea's.
My family loved to travel to Texas and visit Mercados where I loved shopping! These things were big factors in creating Mucho.
I now reside in Memphis, TN which also plays a big part in the creation of Mucho because there is only a very small amount of latino inspiration or style offered in the area.
Mucho is a place where you can shop for a variety of treasures that you would typically find at Mexican markets or Tex-Mex boutiques. Mucho mixes the latest fashions and trends with traditional Latino clothing, accessories, and decor.
I love to show how to appreciate authentic goods that have been around for many years in modern ways combining them with current styles.
No, I do not speak Spanish…yet. BUT, I am learning & practice daily! Although my dad's whole side of the family speaks fluent Spanish because my mother did not sadly my siblings and I did not learn the language growing up. It was definitely a big struggle growing up a Gonzalez not knowing how to speak Spanish!
I love my family, I love refried beans, I love to get dressed up, and I love alliterations.
I want to continue to embrace and learn all things about my Mexican heritage and as Mucho grows, so will I.
Love. Mucho Mucho.
*Bringing the Mexican market online and adding a modern twist is no easy task. Each traditional item is authentic and rare and may have some variations in colors, patterns, and sizes. (i.e. one-of-a-kind) That being said, certain items you purchase will be beautiful and unique. Like you. ¡Salud!
