Whitney Zimet: "I am the maven."
Whitney's website is called I Am The Maven, and she started it because she loves to shop local and find the best places for one-of-a-kind finds.
Whitney Zimet: "I really want to be the filter and find the best places and feature those places."
And then she gets those specialty stores to offer up sweet deals for her clients.
Whitney Zimet: "Every dollar is precious and so why not spend your money at exceptional local businesses where you're gonna have hopefully a very good experience."
From children's clothing, consignment to cupcakes, swim lessons to tutoring, The Maven gives you the scoop.
