Wednesday Night Whinos is headed to our favorite and chicest shop in Manayunk, The Little Apple, for a fabulous fall gal’s night out of shopping and networking on Wednesday evening, November 3rd.

Entrepreneur and Southern California native Molly Cygan opened The Little Apple boutique in February with an ‘Etsy-meets-Anthropologie’ feel to the charming, and now popular, shop. Cygan, a 2006 Berkeley grad who boasts an art history degree, was inspired years ago by her boarding school days at Exeter Academy in New Hampshire. “The seeds were definitely planted when I was at boarding school at Exeter. Here we were-lots of young kids in a small town with disposable cash—but nowhere to spend it. I was determined when I went back for my five year reunion (at Exeter) to start looking into opening a little boutique. And, of course, when I returned the downtown was packed with great shops-so clearly a few other people had the same idea! So, I kind of gave it up at that time but still wanted to pursue opening my own shop when the time was just right,” explained Cygan.

In a case of six degrees of seperation, Cygan was a classmate of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg during her Exeter days.
